My friend Claire Suellentrop (previously Dir. of Marketing at Calendly) and I (previously VP Marketing at Unbounce) both left our in-house roles about 6 months ago and have each been consulting for SaaS companies since. We keep seeing our clients struggle with the same marketing problem — one that frustrates founders and causes marketers to burn out. Because senior SaaS marketers are hard to find and expensive, less experienced and less expensive marketers are hired left to contend with product-first companies who typically undervalue marketing itself, leaving these marketers at a serious disadvantage, that can snowball.
We wrote a post about it AND what we’re doing to fix it. If you’re an early-stage founder/marketer yourself, we wrote this for you: ... See MoreSee Less

Huzaifa SaeedMark Organ, something I'd recommend the author could add to the article (Have sent him a DM) would be language on what a permanent residence means.
That it entitles you to full health and social benefits, is not connected to your employment status/employer and instead is renewable for the rest of your life (as long as you meet the generous residency requirements).
In my conversations with professionals based in the US, the permanence of PR is significantly more appealing than the highly restrictive H1B1 and Green card "Lottery" but usually misunderstood.
Reuven GorshtThis is awesome and can be a movement. I'd love to see Toronto founders and employees 'adopt' people and families moving from the valley by helping them get acclimated, go through the process and feel like home.

Kevin DoironThanks to Sam Sawchuk and the good folks at Hired for graciously offering to feed us some beer and pizza!
Just for laughs. I was just scrolling through Linkedin and Daniel Rodic's post about Hubba showed up with a picture of Ben Zifkin. As I scrolled through the next post, I also found Ben's doppelganger giving me software advice! ... See MoreSee Less
Ben ZifkinSo weird, same thing happened to me. Saw Daniel's post, then the very next one was my doppelganger trying to sell me ice cream. Linkedin must have a pretty advanced visual AI ad-serving platform.
