Description: Because we are a small, scrappy team, we all wear many hats. Our hire will report directly to the Digital Marketing Director and would be responsible for tasks including, but not limited to, photography, copy writing, gathering information and assets, assisting with planning and organizing social media and online marketing campaigns, and more. The nature of the position will require some travel, so the candidate will need reliable transportation, as well as a mobile phone and laptop.

Creative writing is helpful, as well as ideas for catching our audiences’ eyes and generating interest. Most posts will flow through the Digital Marketing Director, prior to posting, however, Instagram and Facebook Stories may not be. So, this person needs to understand the importance of good grammar, clear speech, have good taste, and also be able to self-generate the content in the field. Basic working knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML, and CSS a huge plus. Some work may involve updating websites or marketplaces, so experience with ebay, Amazon, and basic working knowledge of Microsoft Excel a plus. Technical proficiencies: Office software, photography and/or illustration software, social media, typing. Personal Traits: Candidate should be outgoing and able to manage their time well, while working remotely. Because of the remote nature of much of the work, the hire will need to be motivated, honest, and willing to be held accountable.  Must be willing to follow and comply with current COVID-19 CDC recommendations, as well as always wear a mask when working directly with the Digital Marketing Director.
