It was just last month we blogged about a company with a need for someone with Marketo skills. Now we caught wind of a Washington, DC based company, HireStrategy, that has issued a blanket call for Marketing Automation professionals. This add appeared in a local tech daily newsletter, Potomac TechWire and has been running for several days:
Sales Automation and Marketing Automation Experts
HireStrategy is currently working with numerous high-level software product companies that are looking for Sales Automation and Marketing Automation experts. Qualified candidates will have extensive knowledge and use within SalesForce.com and Marketo/Eloqua (or comparable) tools using each to help with demand and lead generation programs and implementations. Strong understanding of technical environments and the ability to help shape automation strategy and best practices are critical. These positions are extremely lucrative for qualified candidates. If interested please submit resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Name removed to protect the innocent)
By just soliciting resumes without listing a specific open position, it clearly shows that HireStrategy sees the demand swelling for this type of professional and is building a pool of candidates. The skillset for a Marketing Automation professional is still relatively rare. Some platform providers are creating certifications, and that will up the ante on salary and demand.
Are you trying to fill an MA position? Don’t forget that Allinio can help you with this, either by managing your platform for you or helping you find the right person via our nationwide network of Marketing Automation veterans.
ps. – The rascal on the wanted poster is purportedly still alive and running one of the first Marketing Automation service provider companies there is.
