At Actuate, we make the world safer by turning any camera into a smart camera.

We help organizations manage the transition from traditional burglar alarms and human guards to smart AI-powered security.

Our software-only AI analyzes data from existing security cameras in real-time to detect threats such as weapons, intruders, crowds, and where people travel in any environment. The system acts as an end-to-end security camera management system that enables onboarding and management of cameras as well as instant alerts and analytics that allow organizations to pinpoint problems without collecting any personally identifiable information.

We're looking for a Head of Marketing to design and drive distribution of our content, industry awareness of Actuate, and generate leads for sales. This is an end-to-end growth ownership role: You'll be responsible for proposing improvements to our current events, marketing, sales, and product pipelines to drive awareness; designing and running experiments to validate the proposals' RoI; then implementing full-scale growth initiatives once they've been validated. 

Reaching our customer base of security professionals requires creative thinking as security teams are always excited to hear new ideas and content, but they don't seek it out. This means that traditional SaaS-style growth strategies like social, display, and paid ads don't work well. As such, the idea candidate will have experience selling into traditional industries and enjoy thinking outside the box in how they implement all marketing initiatives.

We're a post-Series A startup backed by top NYC- and SF-based investors, and we're growing fast. If you want to help build a company from the ground up and make the world a safer place--without invading privacy--we'd love to hear from you.
