Jes Kirkwood is a results-driven marketing strategist with expertise in both demand generation and revenue expansion. Until recently, she led community marketing at Autopilot, one of the top 10 fastest growing SaaS startups of 2017. Now, she’s using her knack for strategy, commitment to quality, and storytelling skills to drive organic growth for B2B tech companies, like InVision and Contently.
When she’s not working on client projects, Jes helps female tech marketers grow their careers via marketHER.org. The community's first initiative is HERstory, a weekly newsletter where senior marketing leaders from companies like LinkedIn, Eventbrite, Glassdoor, Unbounce, and Lever share their career stories, including how they broke into leadership and overcame common obstacles faced by women in tech.
Over the last decade, Jes has lived in Vancouver, Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Prague. She identifies with values like diversity and inclusion, access over ownership, and work-life balance. In her free time, she enjoys exploring Super Natural British Columbia with her wife Zuzana.
