The background of the function:

At Exalate we are working on a dream, and we are getting there step by step. Our ambition is to create a world-wide network of companies that can work together in a structured manner.
We learned that companies are suffering from the friction that exist whenever their operational systems are disconnected, and that they have to fall-back on email to exchange information. It is clear that this problem is one of those classified under "We have to live with it because connecting our operational systems is almost impossible to do".

With Exalate, we created a product that allows to close that gap in a straightforward way. With a couple of clicks, you can start to co-operate with your partners without leaving your trusted environment.

The challenge we need to tackle is that people get to know that integrating cross-company is becoming feasible, and that Exalate is the solution for it.
The job of PR/Brand manager is to lay the foundation on which your colleagues can build further to that vision.

We are looking forward to work with someone who is willing to build the 'Cross-Company Integration' category, which will be as universal as 'Slack'and 'LinkedIn'.

Exalate is not a greenfield. With over 1000 customers, and a growth of 200% y-o-y, we tend to think that achieving our vision is a feasible goal
Are you ready to join a team of highly motivated, talented people - check out our vacancy!

You’ll play a key part in establishing Exalate as a brand new category within the Integration space. You make sure our product gets elaborate features and media coverage and keep an eye out for what our competitors are doing.

Thanks to your drive, excellent communication and planning skills, you build a global awareness for Exalate.
