Company Culture

You’ll work with a talented and highly-motivated team that is friendly, fast-moving, self-managing, and highly capable with a sense of humor. Our team’s family time is important; we won’t typically require long hours when we can avoid it, which is almost always.

There’s no micro-­management here—we trust that you will see tasks through to completion and communicate with your fellow team members when needed or ask for help when needed.

At Defiant, ‘trust’ is the attribute we value most highly among our team members. We need to know that you can grab a task, communicate clearly with stakeholders, and see the task to completion with superb attention to detail.

We use apps like Slack, FogBugz, GitHub, and Google Apps for our workflow.


Defiant’s product, Wordfence, secures over 4 million WordPress websites. We are the leader in the WordPress security space. We have a large number of paying customers, most of whom are individuals and small businesses in addition to several enterprise customers. Our goal is to expand awareness of our band and product line and to expand into the enterprise market.

As our Senior Digital Marketing Manager, you will start by taking stock of our current brands, their status in the market, and our current market modus operandi. You will suggest key performance indicators and implement measurement of those indicators that we can track over time. Once we have established baselines, you will:

  • Suggest ways to expand our brand and inbound marketing efforts or effectiveness.
  • Ensure we have established a baseline measurement.
  • Implement the idea.
  • Measure if it was effective or not.
  • Iterate.

We have a busy internal operation that has a proven record of success. As you begin to work on the above, you will need to collaborate with our busy team, ensuring that our ongoing Marketing operations and efforts continue to be productive and bear fruit. In other words, you’ll need to grow the brand, while ensuring that you don’t disrupt existing operations and are able to meaningfully contribute to those efforts.

We require a minimum of 5 years of applicable experience. You will be joining a technical team and the ability to code and query relational databases is a strong plus. We use Hubspot and are in the process of significantly expanding our integration and use of Hubspot so previous Hubspot experience is a plus. We implement node.js or Python code in our Hubspot workflows so knowledge of either is helpful.

Defiant is in the process of entering the enterprise market and this will require building a sales team. Experience with Hubspot or Salesforce sales workflows is a strong plus. Experience building or running a sales organization, or experience in sales is a strong plus.

We are looking for mature, capable individuals who are easy to work with, are self-starters and who have a strong work ethic. You will be working extensively with various members of our team, managing multiple projects, and playing a hands-on role in implementing projects and measuring your success. The successful candidate will be able to coordinate multiple concurrent projects and lines of communication on an ongoing and sustainable basis.

You will be reporting directly to the CEO and the founding team. If you’re a great match and are interested in this high growth opportunity, we’d love to hear from you.
