At Abacus, we're reimagining the way businesses move money, starting with the first real-time employee expense system. We’re excited about building tools that are not only effective but enjoyable for everyone to use. Creating the best customer experience drives us — we love hearing everyday how what we're working on is saving our customers time and headaches.

  • Work closely with the sales team and continue to build a strong working relationship between the teams
  • Serve as a strategic liaison between various departments such as sales, customer success, product and engineering
  • Develop a deep understanding of targeted accounts, buyers, pain points and value propositions
  • Define targets and metrics to measure success for all initiatives, as well as forecast longer-term targets for marketing contribution to pipeline and revenue

Who you are:

  • You're able to adapt in a fast-paced environment. We are in high-growth mode, which comes with many opportunities, but also challenges. You’ll need to roll-up your sleeves and move quickly, while ensuring high quality
  • You understand the power of great content, and are excited to help us create stories and resources that help our prospects and customers at every stage of the customer journey
  • You're extremely organized and love establishing efficient processes

  • You're a strong, nurturing manager who can push a talented, ambitious team
  • You're an empathetic team player with a positive attitude
  • You're resourceful — you can ball on a budget


  • 5+ years of experience in growth marketing, preferably with a diverse skill set that can be utilized to scale and adapt as our sales team expands
  • Strong knowledge of Marketo and Salesforce reporting and measurement, as well as more tactical understanding of lead routing and sensibilities around lead scoring
  • Strong background in demand generation and growth marketing for a B2B SaaS company preferred
  • Bachelor’s degree required
  • Travel: 20%+

An Insider's view of Abacus

What are some social events your company does?

Pancake breakfast is a big tradition at Abacus - each month a few people are picked to make the entire company a breakfast of their choosing. We also rotate members on our fun committee each quarter to plan unique outings for the whole team.


Chief Product Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Abacus is changing the game for expense reporting software. Other platforms out there have really just digitized an old, outdated process. We're solving the problem in a different, more efficient way and really helping growing teams with a more scalable solution.


Vice President of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career at Abacus as a Business Development Representative. During my time here, I have had the opportunity to become the inaugural Account Manager and was then promoted to Director of Customer Success. As a small team that values people greatly, there's always an opportunity to gain exposure to new areas and to mold your own path.


Director of Customer Success

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Team members at Abacus are willing to let their guard down and be vulnerable. This is the foundation required to create a trusting environment in which colleagues can vigorously disagree with one another. We believe this leads to better ideation and solutions.



What are some social events your company does?

Every quarter we name a Fun Committee to plan outings for the team. We’ve done axe throwing, a harbor cruise, karaoke, rooftop bars. It’s a really fun way to get to know each other out of the office.
