Senior Demand Generation Manager

New York City /
Commercial – Marketing /
Here at Forecast we’re building and delivering an AI-native platform for profitable Project & Resource Management that represents the most advanced technology ever applied to managing projects, resources and finances. Our platform automates busywork, surfaces best practices, predicts outcomes, guides projects to success, and most importantly empowers every team member to do their best work. 

With our recent $19M Series A funding round led by Balderton Capital (who have backed hugely successful businesses including Revolut, Peakon, Citymapper, Voi, Vivino and Yoox Net A Porter), we’re rapidly scaling our teams across the US and Europe to bring our AI powered technology to customers across the globe. After more than tripling revenue over the past year, we have huge ambition and growth plans for 2021 and beyond. It’s an incredibly exciting time to join us on our journey!

After a phenomenal past year of growth during which Forecast opened a new office in London, more than triped our revenue and solidified our position as a market leader, we’re now expanding our commercial team to the US.

This is a critical role in building our capabilities to address and successfully target a hot and fast growing market. You will be our first US marketer on the ground and will be working closely with our international team. We expect that you will use your understanding of the marketing-sales funnel & analytical numbers driven experience to define and drive Forecast’s efforts to address the substantial UK and US market and maximise our opportunities, with the support of your team.
