dbt Labs was founded in 2016 to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the most respected brands in the analytics industry. Our product, dbt, is used by thousands of companies.
At dbt Labs, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.
Specifically, we believe that:
- Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
- Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
- Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software
- Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source
It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Today there are 9,000 companies using dbt every week, 25,000 practitioners in the dbt Community Slack, and 1,800 companies paying for dbt Cloud. Our customers include JetBlue, Hubspot, Vodafone New Zealand, and Dunelm. dbt is synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry. We’re backed by top investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, and Altimeter. We recently raised our series D: read the announcement here!
Paid media at dbt Labs is a little bit different, because teams don’t adopt dbt overnight. It’s a development framework that teams implement over time, rather than a tool that’s purchased + deployed in one swoop.
Our paid media strategy must reflect this complexity, and help users + teams move up the dbt usage ladder (from brand awareness to enterprise adoption).
This role exists to prioritize + orchestrate. It exists to parse, from the wide array of offers that we could be producing for various audience segments at each stage of the journey, what we should be producing and when.
Why is prioritization so important? Because we serve a technical audience. Content dbt Labs produces for paid media must be technically authentic, and this of course is expensive (in terms of time + people) to produce.
We follow a hybrid model at dbt Labs and plan to for the foreseeable future: this role will own paid media strategy, and execution of campaigns will be managed by an external agency partner.
In the future, this role will grow in responsibility as one generally does with paid media work: by taking on larger budgets, on more channels, with more access to execution support.
