    Maternity Leave Coverage

    Amanda Zoeller

      Hi all,


      I am going to be on maternity leave next April for 16 weeks and I was curious as to what others have done when a fellow Marketo'er goes on maternity leave for some time. Do people typically get a contractor to come in for those weeks? If anyone has any experience in this please let me know.


      Thank you!

          Yes, I see a lot of maternity covers on this forum. There are a lot of freelancers and agencies willing to do short term contracts. I've done this before too.

              I have added the job description below. The time that I will out will roughly be early-mid April until mid July (about 14-16 weeks). Then there is of course ramp up time to get familiar with our instance and training on our programs.


              Kristen Malkovich, Perkuto Perkuto, Denise Greenberg please let me know if either of you are interested.


              Thank you for the help!

              Hi Amanda ,

              I’ve looked into the position you’ve posted, and I’m a good candidate – I'm a Marketo expert (5+ years of experience).

              Before sending you my CV – important question to make sure I'm indeed qualified  - Are you looking for someone at the same country as yours (I'm located in Israel), or you can work with someone from abroad?
