With the establishment of its Bay Area headquarters, BigPanda began its search for a Director of Growth and Engagement. The company needed a proven marketing leader with the vision to define direction and the drive to successfully execute. As the company’s first marketing executive in the US, it was crucial that they have a passion for startup environments as well as a solid track record generating demand, creating powerful messaging and leveraging all channels to raise awareness and consideration within the industry for a young market offering. BigPanda turned to Millennium Search for their expertise in recruiting marketing executives for technology startups.
The result was the hiring of Dan Chuparkoff. Joining BigPanda from Atlassian, Chuparkoff was Group Manager of Product Marketing for JIRA, their IT workflow and issue management software solution. He brings extensive experience across product marketing and management as well as development. Big Panda continues to make waves across the industry.
