Director, Growth Marketing

at Pinecone, NYC

Pinecone is on a mission to build the search and database technology to power AI applications for the next decade and beyond. Our fully managed vector database makes it easy to add vector search to AI applications. Since creating the “vector database” category, demand has grown incredibly fast and it shows in our user base. We are a distributed team with clusters in New York, San Francisco, Tel-Aviv, and Manchester.

If you’re excited about:

  • Combining analytical and creative skills to make a measurable business impact.

  • Making a huge impact at a fast-growing company and product category.

  • Working in the exciting and fast-moving AI/ML space.

  • Collaborating with world-class people in different teams who value clarity, creativity, passion, initiative, and thoughtfulness.

Then this is your opportunity to join a category-defining, fast-growing (in a healthy way), and well-funded startup to shape the course of an entire industry.

As a Director of Growth Marketing at Pinecone, you will apply your analytical and creative problem-solving skills to help engineers discover, explore, and build with vector databases — a fast-growing product category at the intersection of AI and data infrastructure. Our growth has come almost entirely from inbound interest, so you will make an immediate and measurable impact. You will report to the VP of Marketing and collaborate with the most technical marketing team you’ve ever seen.

To succeed in this role, you should have:

  • Ability to build and scale growth marketing programs targeted at developers.

  • Curiosity and courage to ask “what if?” and question all assumptions.

  • Both an analytical and creative approach to driving traffic and maximizing conversions.

  • Comfort working in a fast-paced and loosely structured (startup) environment with a high degree of autonomy.

  • Burning desire to make a measurable impact on growth.

  • Superb communication and interpersonal skills to successfully work with other teams to test and implement changes.

If this sounds exciting, we want to hear from you!


  • Drive web traffic to Pinecone using a mix of paid and organic channels.

  • Convert web visitors into signups or sales leads by optimizing and expanding our website. You will own the website as a product, in partnership with a Growth Engineer and Brand Designer.

  • Nurture email subscribers into signups or sales leads with email marketing and lifecycle emails.

  • Build out marketing analytics to inform and evaluate Growth Marketing and other marketing programs, primarily using Heap and HubSpot. 

Make an impact: Think big, move fast, be flexible, take an experimental approach, and do what it takes to move the needle on funnel metrics. You will find opportunities in areas that don’t fit neatly into the above options; we want you to take them.
