Digital Marketing Associate

As a Digital Marketing Associate, you will play an instrumental role in building our sites into the category leaders in our verticals.

Starting out, we envision a few primary areas of focus that add real value to our properties and that you’ll have autonomy to run with. We expect this role will grow and evolve as our business does.

Success in the first three months:

    • Each campaign should have at least 10 different content pieces.

  • You’ve determined which campaigns are most successful and double down on them by extending their focus.

Key activities to deliver this success:

  • Create content “franchises” that showcase our expertise, build our authority and deepen industry relationships.
    • Develop unique campaigns that help differentiate our brand and garner high-quality links.
    • Implement primary research studies to support these campaigns, such as interviews with subject matter experts, surveys, focus groups, social listening, secret shopping and more.
    • Synthesize research findings and package content into a clear and comprehensive deliverable, including actionable insights for our readers.
    • Execute guerilla digital PR tactics to support each of these content franchises.

What Your Resume and Background Shows

  • Bachelor’s degree in English, Creative Writing, Journalism, Communications or related field preferred. Involvement in related school activities (school newspaper, editorial staff, news staff) or previous work experience is a plus.
  • Proven dexterity with written language: You can translate ideas and complex research into attractive, precise copy that engages and informs your audience. You are comfortable pivoting between topics and writing for different platforms (website, social media, infographics), while still maintaining a consistent voice. You’ll demonstrate this with a portfolio of varied writing samples directed at different audiences (maybe a technical academic paper on one hand, and an album review or blog post on another).
  • Independence and maturity: You are comfortable putting your head down and producing excellent work without constant supervision. You demonstrate maturity and have made it clear that we can count on you to show up every day on time, smiling and ready to go. You prove this to us through a successful track-record of positive professional experiences with your previous jobs, internships, leadership in your school, or dedication to a blog.

  • Problem solving and agility: You thrive in an environment where there is no playbook for success. You can adapt to different tasks and shift priorities as needed. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are energized by doing work that hasn’t been done before.
  • An inherent drive to be excellent: You are not satisfied with average. You are enthusiastic and committed to do whatever it takes to get the job done at a world-class level and don’t check out because it’s 5PM or a weekend.
