< See all openings This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to lead all public relations efforts in a hyper-growth startup. ClickUp is an entirely content-led growth company, spending $0 on marketing and only growing from the viral nature of organic search and word of mouth. The product and our organic online presence have carried us from 0 to 100,000+ teams in under 2 years - and we're now one of the fastest growing software companies in the world.

In all things we do, we hate normal — in fact, we will diligently avoid normalcy in all of our marketing assets, collateral, and messaging. You will be in charge of ensuring brand consistency in terms of company statistics and public-facing information, refining PR messaging in different target customer verticals, persona, and geographic regions, and managing agencies, vendors and other third-party relationships.

Our product is unique in that it’s highly customizable - it can be used for use cases ranging from very simple to highly complex. It will be your job to work with analysts, bloggers and other thought leaders to ensure that ClickUp is on every appropriate list of industry leader. You will also be working alongside the CEO and Director of Marketing to develop a PR, social, content and event strategy that drives key business outcomes, including owning media relationships, preparing outreach materials, and securing coverage.
