We need someone to help evangelize our product to potential customers.
This person has two primary responsibilities. First, to create
standards-compliant marketing materials to support sales. This means
communicating our offering and understanding the ins-and-outs of our
target audience. Second, to architect distribution strategies for the
offering. If a great product fails to attract massive discovery and
adoption, it will also fail. This means our marketing person needs to
be darn clever.
