The Position: Senior Marketing and Digital Communications Manager
We are looking for a talented and experienced doer to champion our external communications, including our website and social media. The right person will be passionate about the outdoors and adventure, have excellent writing skills, a background in digital marketing, experience directing video content, an eye for design, a natural talent for messaging and connecting with people, and a history of successful marketing implementation with respected national brands, either directly or through employment at an agency.
The right candidate will be clever, quick-witted, deeply creative and an excellent problem solver. We’re a small company—we use our brains where others use big dollars. This role is for someone equally happy thinking strategically and actually doing the work…someone who can see the big picture, but also sketch out ideas and write excellent creative. We don’t use a lot of outside resources…you will need to be a thinker and a doer!
Expect hard work. But also a lot of fun and a family-like atmosphere. We have a top-notch team and a beautiful office in an old textile mill in Dover, NH. Most people here ski, surf, bike, backpack, or run. We’re located 15 minutes from historic Portsmouth, 20 minutes to the beach, or an hour to the White Mountains. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
If you think you have the right stuff, please send your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
. We will be taking the top applicants and offering a small creative challenge to help us identify the best candidate.
We look forward to hearing from you!
