Drift, Strategic Alliances Manager

Drift is expanding our partnerships team to grow and nurture our Strategic Alliances and Integration Partnerships. To-date, Drift has secured Strategic Alliances with companies like Adobe, LinkedIn,, and Demandbase (to name a few) and has over 40 integration partners. The opportunity for you is to help build a $100M alliance program with one of the fastest growing SaaS companies, ever. 


What you’ll be doing as an Alliances Manager on the Partner team at Drift:

  • Own the Alliance number of your alliance relationships. Influence & source pipeline from our Strategic Alliances. Tactics for success in this initiative involve coordinating co-selling with alliance partner’s sales & customer success teams, co-marketing initiatives, enablement activities (internal & external), and corresponding reporting of results and insights.
  • Working cross-functionally with Drift’s Marketing, Sales, Product, Partner and Customer Success teams to operate our Alliances engine.


About you and what type of skills you'll need:

  • You are a curious learning machine. You seek feedback openly and frequently.
  • You have a bias for action and are not afraid of showing daily results.
  • You read the Drift Leadership Principles and say “this is how I’ve always wanted to work.” These are not negotiable, you either live them or make a decision this is not the company for you. They are practiced and enforced daily.
  • 2+ years experience managing high-profile alliance relationships with companies larger than the company of your employment.
  • 4+ years of experience selling or managing alliance relationships in marketing technology and/or sales technology
  • A demonstrated background in driving business results through alliances and integration partnerships.
  • You are a “full stack employee” or have the “Entrepreneurial” spirit. Foundational mastery of sales, marketing, product marketing, customer success, and product development is required for this role.


At Drift, team members:

  • Have complete ownership and accountability over their role and functional area
  • Have complete transparency into the rest of the company (and are expected to show their work and do the same)
  • Have a sense of urgency. We are building a once in a lifetime company at Drift, so we move fast every single day
