About the Job

You’re just the person we’re looking for. You are a born communicator who loves to shape and share compelling stories that help create business growth.

Here’s an idea of what you’ll do:

  • Lead marketing and communications campaigns and projects from concept/planning through to evaluation, on time and on budget
  • Develop a vision for each project and inspire others to collaborate with you on its execution
  • Partner with and provide strategic counsel to key internal stakeholders (industry and specialty leaders, growth team, etc.) to execute campaigns
  • Dig into analytics data on campaigns, content and channels as part of an ongoing team priority to see what’s working and where we should raise the bar
  • Proactively identify trends and white space
  • Periodically pitch in on writing media relations and other external communications materials


We’re looking for required skills that can come from any combination of education and experience. Typical qualifications include:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Advertising, Communications, Digital Communications & Media, Public Relations or a related field
  • 9+ years of experience in an agency or similar position, including 3+ years of supervisory experience
  • Demonstrated ability to generate creative ideas, shape stories, create lead-generating campaigns and drive the production of compelling marketing assets
  • Ability to write effective external communications materials, including press releases, key messages and scripts; proficient in AP style
  • Extremely strong communication and presentation skills and attention to detail
  • Familiarity with content strategy, SEO, analytics tools and other marketing technology is not required but is a differentiator
  • Open-minded leader/creator with who loves spotting hidden opportunities and responds enthusiastically to change
