Marketing Specialist
Position type:
Full-Time
Reports to:
Integrator

We hire the best of the best and the smartest of the smart (you get the idea). It’s what allows our ‘small’ agency to accomplish some pretty big shit. By the way, ‘small’ to us means we accomplish far more than marketing agencies three or four times our size, all with a fraction of the staff. Why? Because our people and our processes kick some serious ass.

You ready to join the team?

As 8THIRTYFOUR’s marketing specialist, you’ll be responsible for managing clients, developing and executing marketing strategies, creating kickass campaigns and more. You’ll need to ooze confidence (fake it to make it) and own any room you walk into. You need to be comfortable pushing back on clients and team when necessary to maintain accountability. We don’t pass the monkey here.

You’re a jack of all trades, you are a PR practitioner, strategist, writer, podcaster, blogger, social media guru, digital wiz, cat herder and time management ninja. If you’re not organized and creative, no need to apply. If you take yourself too seriously, you’ll have a hard time participating in our office water gun fights or yearly retreats.

Responsibilities

You gotta be able to do all the things.

  • Strategy: We have a tried and true strategy process; it’s been written about in books (it was our book). You’ll organize, lead, research, analyze and develop client strategies then turn around and implement the hell out of them. You also need to be able to think about everything strategically, yes, we really mean everything. This skill comes in handy when have our team Werewolf games (google it).

  • Content Creation: Your excellent research and written skills will contribute on-brand content that supports the strategy and goals of the piece or campaign. Tasks will include proofreading, copywriting, competitive research and more.

  • Public Relations: As a master storyteller, you’ll take the seemingly mundane and develop content that will make the toughest reporter cry. You’ll work hand-in-hand with our PR specialist writing strategies and press releases, managing influencers, developing media kits, cultivating media lists and pitching the hell out of our clients.

  • Social Media: Mark Zuckerburg has nothing on you. You love social media, and think strategically when writing, researching and drafting compelling content while executing successful social advertising campaigns.

  • Account Management: We have lots of clients and they need to be managed. Processes are our way of life, you’ll implement, track, timeline, oversee and report while living and dying by our project management system.

  • Digital Marketing: You gotta know the Google. We are a digital firm and this position loves digital advertising. Search, display, like-building – you get the idea. You know your shit. We build websites and you’ll manage the process from initial meeting to strategy to development and design.
