Captivating Customers. Fueling Growth

Iterable is the growth marketing platform that enables brands to create, execute and optimize campaigns to power world-class customer engagement across email, push, SMS, in-app and more with unparalleled data flexibility. We are an integrated, cross-channel solution — Iterable is built for marketers, trusted by engineers, and designed with intelligence. We know this space well: our product team built the growth systems that powered Twitter’s early success. We've raised over $30M from investors like Index Ventures and CRV and hundreds of companies like Spotify, Zillow, DoorDash, and Box rely on us to captivate their many millions of users.

It’s a very exciting time to join the team as Iterable has recently been recognized as one of 2018's Best Places to Work, we’ve been in the top 20 companies on the SaaS 1000, and held our first customer conference which was a sell-out success. We are excited to open our third office in the US - San Francisco, New York, and now Denver.

The Team:

Customers trust Iterable with their marketing and sensitive information, expecting us to safeguard their data. Iterable's security team leads a cross-functional effort across the company to ensure that all systems remain secure in support of Iterable's core values, and to provide assurance to our customers that we will be the good stewards of their valued data. The Iterable security team actively collaborates and leads the effort to build Iterable's security architecture in concert with other groups as they develop or launch new features and services. As engineers, we believe in security through automation, our footprint spans across the entire company at all levels, from production to campus technology.
