Director of Marketing

  • For Immediate Hire
  • San Francisco, CA

We’re Looking for You Because:

  • You’re hungry for a hands-on leadership role! You ooze enthusiasm around marketing, creating connection, digital solutions, writing new copy and developing new partnerships. You’ll get to set the vision and be an integral player on a small-and-mighty team. We love our jobs, and we want you to love your job, too.
  • You’re self-motivated. You work extremely well in a team environment, and you excel when working independently and efficiently. For you, it’s not “my way or the highway;” rather, you say, “I will get us to the highway.” And you will figure it out, grab the help you need, and get it done. Period.
  • You’re a project ninja. You can nimbly move among web, copy creation, analytics and engaging with our team and clients. You should read that list, above, and think, timelines, deliverables: YUP. On it.
  • Nothing slips past you. Sometimes you even surprise yourself with how many things you are able to track. You sweat the details, and as a result, nothing falls through the cracks. Your follow through is outstanding, and you love seeing months of hard work come to fruition.
  • You see the forest AND the trees. You spot trends across programs and initiatives, identify common pain points and opportunities for alignment, and create positive connections. You take pride in your ability to catch a missing comma, or spot an opportunity to refine a message or the user’s experience.

This role has a unique opportunity to lead the best parts of B2B marketing! You will:

  • Own the Decker Brand, including the creation and evolution of our sub-brands, products and assets
  • Specify and implement market expansion and new product launch plans
  • Define and leverage opportunities to pitch and provide thought leadership, apply for (and win) awards, and showcase our status as the leading global communication firm
  • Write pithy messaging, including blogs, emails, social media posts, web copy and more
  • Create case studies, client testimonials, compelling videos and collateral materials for our programs and relationship management team
  • Generate leads and optimize funnel-filling opportunities
  • Lead content strategy, design and development of decker.com
  • Run Decker’s social media channels (including both strategy and execution) and lead the charge for new opportunities
  • Collaborate with our sales team (full disclosure: they can sometimes be demanding because they’re really good at their jobs)

You should have several examples of times when you developed, demonstrated and executed these things. And you should be eager to tell us about those times.

Why We Should Talk:

Decker Communications is expanding our 39-year old business communication training, coaching and consulting brand. We’ve grown consistently over the years, propelled by happy clients and incredible referrals, like this experience shared in USA Today.

Decker is one of the best teams you’ll ever join. On the outside (for our clients), we empower others to connect, influence and inspire. And in the process, we transform business communication. On the inside, we’re smart, dedicated, energized, and fueled by our five core values (and you should be, too). Owning it is just as important as having fun, and relationships matter around here. A lot.

You’ll get to lead the marketing department of a beloved company that people know, cherish, value and rave about to their friends. Seriously. It’s a pretty dreamy role. You’ll get to set the strategy, lead and launch incredible products, leverage content marketing, learn from coveted clients and develop enviable partnerships on behalf of the firm. You’ll sit on the leadership team at the firm, influencing firm-wide decisions and connecting the dots across the whole team. And you’ll also inherit a rock star Marketing Manager as your direct report.

Oh! And! We’re in the process of moving from exclusively offering in-person training and coaching experiences to include a host of new virtual trainings and ongoing coaching options for our clients’ disparate and flexibility-craving workforces. That’s where you come in…

Specific Skills You’ll Need:

(Read: If you can’t nod your head “yes” to each of these, don’t waste your time applying)

  • References who will agree: You’re crazy reliable
  • Strategic mindset
  • Extraordinary writing skills: You’re pithy, grammatically accurate, thoughtful and you embrace feedback and editing (though your first draft starts out so darn good that you wouldn’t cringe if a client caught a glimpse of it)
  • Get It Factor
  • High Proficiency in Google Docs, Microsoft Office, Social Media platforms
  • Proficiency with Google Analytics and Adwords, email marketing and dashboards of marketing metrics
  • Experience with design software: Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Powerpoint/Keynote (yes, we’re including those as design tools)
  • Experience working with senior leaders
  • Experience managing people
  • Experience developing and building marketing campaigns
  • B.S. or B.A. plus 8-10 years of related work experience
  • Alignment with Decker’s Core Values
  • Bonus points: Experience using Salesforce platform
  • Bonus points: Experience with video editing
  • Wild bonus points: If you can code (And if you can’t, well, neither can we. We work with some awesome external folks who do, though.)

Compensation: Competitive salary and comprehensive benefit package including health, dental, vision, 401k, profit sharing, HSA, FSA, long-term disability and pre-tax commuter benefits. Plus, a solid future with high-growth market-leading firm.
