Hi everyone! I’m Justine Jordan, Head of Marketing at Wildbit, the team behind Postmark, DMARC Digests, and People-First Jobs. We’re a product agnostic software company that operates like a self-funded venture studio. We also believe that businesses are designed to support human beings, and want to prove it’s possible to build bootstrapped, people-first, and profitable products.
Most recently I was interviewed for a Good Morning America segment about companies who run a 4-day work week. You can also read about my recent experiment to “hire like a human” or check out my personal site, Twitter, or LinkedIn posts.
Previously I was CMO at Help Scout and VP of Marketing at Litmus (where I spent 8 years after joining as employee #8 and the first marketing hire). While at Litmus I was recognized as the Email Experience Council’s 2015 Email Marketer Thought Leader of the Year and built an incredible brand, community, and multi-city international conference.
In my past life, I was a designer. After earning my BFA in Visual Communication, I spent a year in a tiny agency before landing in the professional services org at ExactTarget (acquired by Salesforce) as an email designer and campaign manager for small brands all the way up to the Fortune 500.
Along my career journey I realized that I was chasing someone else’s definition of success: climbing the ladder, getting promotions, leading ever-bigger teams at increasingly larger companies. Once I figured out my sweet spot, I’m a lot happier in life and work.
Ask me anything about sustainable/organic growth strategies, running great events, recognizing when it’s time to move on, supporting multiple brands in a 4-day work week, public speaking, or hiring like a human. I’m an open book!
