Digital Marketing Specialist

About the Position

The Digital Marketing Specialist applies a combination of technical expertise and best practices in marketing to improve brand awareness and increase inbound lead flow. Your toolbox includes the website CMS, Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools, Mailchimp, Nutshell CRM, Adobe Creative Suite, and standard office productivity tools.

You “own” and manage two company websites (, with support from graphic designers, engineer subject matter experts, and website developers. You execute marketing communications activities such as e-mail campaigns and webinars and are the key person who makes sure marketing materials look great.  You are very hands on, and also use contractors as needed to fill in gaps and keep you focused on marketing. As foundational elements you build become mature, you contribute to the planning of next steps, test performance, analyze results, and design and execute continuous improvement tactics. Your measures of success are upticks in qualified leads, optimized conversion paths, improved search rankings, and great looking marketing collateral.

About You:

You have 5+ years of experience in marketing with an emphasis on website management, preferably at a technology company.
