Growth Marketing Specialist

The ideal candidate (maybe you?):

This is a new position on the Marketing and NextAfter Institute team where you’ll have one goal: growth.

You’ll focus almost exclusively on generating more (quality) traffic to our key sites and driving more (quality) email subscriptions. But the end goal isn’t just growth for growth’s sake though; it’s to reach more nonprofits with research, resources, and training to help them raise more money for their causes and work.

That could be through reading a blog post, downloading a research study, attending a webinar, taking an online certification course, or attending the Nonprofit Innovation & Optimization Summit. We believe we have great and needed resources for nonprofits, but we simply need to do a better job of finding them, letting them know we exist, and connecting them to those resources they want and need.

As the Growth Marketing Specialist, you’ll have excellent content at your disposal, a sizeable budget, top-class tools, a small but agile and high functioning team, and a culture of risk-taking, testing and optimization, and moving fast. In short, we think it’s a great opportunity and environment for you to put your marketing skills and ideas to the test to deliver real, meaningful, and measurable results.

This isn’t to say it will be easy, but that it will be worth it. Are you the person we’re looking for? Sound like a challenge that you’re ready to jump head-first into and own? We’d love to talk. You should send us your resume. Let’s talk.
