If you live and breathe marketing, this role is for you. You are passionate about highly-effective marketing, and understand that success requires a combination of rigorous analytics and testing, consistent execution, creative content marketing, and strong strategic thought. You care more about what strategies work, rather than what marketers are “supposed to do.”
Your goal will be to develop our marketing plan and implement it in a manner that leads to tremendous engagement and reach across our website, newsletter, social channels, and other marketing avenues. You will manage our marketing partners to ensure we fully optimize our website and paid advertising. You will help lead our social media, design, and event marketing interns, and collaborate with our designers, curators, and content creators to ensure overall marketing success. The end result of this will be a strong and unified brand, increasing ticket sales, and world-class content for our growing audience.
You have hands-on experience with web analytics and turning ideas into highly-effective marketing campaigns across all channels. You are flexible and versatile, and take pride in doing whatever it takes to get the word out. You can own a marketing plan from ideation and creation to implementation and tracking. You have proven experience in identifying target audiences and in executing marketing plans across a number of channels. You are very comfortable working with numbers, making sense of metrics, and processing figures with spreadsheets. Experience with setting up and managing Google Adwords and Facebook ads is a plus. You are up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices for online marketing and measurement. You have a sense of aesthetics and a love for great copy and witty communication.
We are looking for someone who is half-time (~15-25 hours per week). This will allow you to play a significant role with our organization, while still learning and growing through outside projects. If you can play a successful role in growing our revenues and strategic initiatives, there is an opportunity for this role to grow into a full-time role over time. Several years of experience as a marketing professional is required. Experience with email marketing, paid search, organic social media, and website management is preferred.
You enjoy telling the stories of individuals, selling-out events, building community relationships, and developing strategies for year-round media. If you get excited about exploring new ideas on a daily basis, building a media organization aimed at being the hub for intellectual conversation in Colorado, and ensuring that all the details to make it happen are covered, this is for you.
You Like to Tell a Good Story
This is transformative work, in a transformative space, during a transformative time, and you want to let everyone know about how they can get involved. You are a brand champion. You understand how to develop a brand story, identify your target audience, and leverage our brand in channel and product marketing campaigns.
You Get Things Done
This is not your first rodeo. You’re a multitasking machine. You own your work. You follow through on every request, no matter how big or small. You keep your cool under pressure and know how to prioritize. And when you need help, you’re not afraid to ask for it.
You Have a Team Ethos and Independent Drive
You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced startup environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You’re not just excited to work cross-functionally, you demand it. You’re also comfortable working independently, and getting it done and owning your role and responsibility.
You’re Flexible, a Quick Responder
The messaging we’re pushing and conversation we’re starting is dynamic and each day brings fresh and exciting challenges. You can react quickly and efficiently when called upon to change or pivot. You like special projects and learning new things.
You Get Under the Hood
Our team digs deep. They do what’s necessary for quality. The integrity of our messaging is a core value, so your attention to detail must be impeccable.
You Believe That No Problem is Too Hard
You find ways to get it done. You know how to articulate and roll out solutions, recognizing there are many solutions to the same problem. You find new and effective ways to streamline and create processes to increase efficiency.
