Do you believe that creators should get paid for the value they give to their fans?
We do, which is why we’re building Patreon, a platform that powers exclusive content and community experiences for creators with established followings. Patreon provides creators with the insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases.
Since its inception in 2013, creators have earned over $2B on the Patreon platform and we’ve only just begun! In order to support this level of growth and bring our brand’s personality to life, Patreon is looking for a Strategic Partner Manager to join our San Francisco, New York City or Los Angeles team.

- Partner on marketing opportunities: Coordinate with cross-functional Patreon teams to showcase your creators in promotional, event, and press opportunities that are mutually beneficial to the creator and Patreon
- Level up creators’ product mastery: Coach creator teams on how to use the Patreon platform, new product launches, and third-party integrations to achieve their membership goals
- Inspire evangelism for Patreon: Translate the investment we make into strategic creators into the strength of their advocacy for Patreon, driving more fan and creator interest in the platform

- Cross-functional partnership: Strong relationships and execution with internal stakeholders across marketing, communications, customer support, product

- Managing a creator’s involvement in a Patreon marketing event to ensure a great experience for the creator and impact for Patreon
- Identifying and exploring relationships with additional creators who could be the next strategic creators to add to our managed portfolio

- You will build expertise around the drivers of building an engaged fan base and converting them to paying members
Who you’ll work with:
