- When we’re working on a product feature launch, you’ll be building outreach lists, writing marketing copy, talking to our affiliates, brand partners, and influencers to give them a heads up, and making sure all of the marketing bits go smoothly on launch day.
- When we’re planning for our virtual summit, you’ll be acting as the PM for it, from keeping the project organized in Basecamp, to helping brainstorm speakers and sessions, to writing and setting up email, social, and partner campaigns to drive signups.
- When we decide to prioritize growing our affiliate program over other marketing initiatives, you’ll take the lead on that, from running affiliate outreach, to organizing and hosting joint webinars, to executing on follow-up campaigns to help our partner’s leads convert.
- When our content team is launching a new guide, you’ll build our promotion list, reach out to relevant partners to share the guide, and take ownership of spreading the word.
There are certain things you’ll consistently own, like reviewing affiliate program applications to ensure good partner fit, setting up email flows in Active Campaign, and creating new website pages in Contentful, but in general, the day-to-day of this role will be dynamic.
- A passion for marketing. When you’re not practicing marketing, you’re nerding out on marketing podcasts, YouTube channels, and blogs to learn about what the best marketers are doing and thinking about how to apply it to your own work. 🧠
- A Swiss army knife marketing skill set. You don’t have to be the very best copywriter, email marketer, webinar host, partnership marketer, event organizer, or social media manager, but you’re not afraid to do any of those things, picking up and running with whatever the most high-impact need is at the time. 🧰
- A high bar for quality. Even though you may not be an expert in every marketing discipline, you know how to figure out what excellence looks like in any of them, and chart a path for getting us there. You don’t tolerate sloppy deliverables or things slipping through the cracks. 🏆
- Organizational prowess. You know how to build a project in a PM tool (we use Basecamp, but experience there isn’t required), track things meticulously, and keep the team informed on progress. You can see blockers from a mile away, and you’re not afraid to bring them up. 🗄️
- Comfort with change. Your day-to-day responsibilities will look completely different depending on what’s going on that week, and you’re okay — ideally, better than okay! — with that variability. 🕶️
- Full-time availability. We love freelancers, but this is a full-time job for someone who wants to be a key player on our team for the long-haul. ⌚
- At least 4 hours of daily overlap with US Eastern Time.
- 2+ year experience working in a marketing role. Maybe you’ve been a “marketing team of one” at a startup, or part of a larger team, but you’ve had first-hand experience doing the work yourself. 🖊️
It’d be REALLY great if you also:
- Have created and/or sold an online course, membership, or download before 🤑
- Have worked with digital creators before 💡
- Competitive compensation. We want to hire the best people, and we’re ready to pay for them. We use a standardized salary scale set at the 90th percentile of US salaries for each role—regardless of where you are in the world 💰
- Ultimate flexibility. We try to have some overlap time every day, but outside of that, work whenever and wherever you work best 🗺️
- That said, the rest of the team is always ready to lend a hand—or even an ear if you just need to bounce some ideas 💡
- You’ll be working with a diverse team from a range of countries and backgrounds. We work hard to make Podia an inclusive workplace for everyone 🌈
- We have a rapidly growing base of passionate customers. Your work will be seen and appreciated by many people ❤️
- Great benefits including three weeks paid vacation (plus another week during the December holidays), sabbaticals every three years, professional development credit, paid family leave, a new laptop every three years, and more ☺️
- (Paid for) annual retreats to spend time with the team and have fun together (or a still-pretty-great virtual retreat when there’s a global pandemic) ✈️
