You’ll be charged with identifying the opportunities that make sense for Klaviyo; then planning, executing, measuring and optimizing these marketing programs.

Plan in-person training sessions, webinars, or regional events - whatever you need to do to make sure they know (and love) Klaviyo.
Klaviyo’s App store listings.
