Who To Email
When you email a pitch, to whom do you send it?
Depends. There's no Exact Right Answer to job hunting. But here are some ideas:

The VP of your role (VP of sales, marketing, client success, etc.)
A future coworker even
Best bet is to pick the person with whom you think you'll work the closest.
But again, there's no right answer. Play with it! Think for yourself.
