Are you an experienced marketer with strong skills in digital and content marketing? Would you like to make a positive difference to the lives of thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of young students around the world?

Makers Empire is looking for a US based, digital marketing executive to join our small but expert team. This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated individual to join a fast-growing, global EdTech company headquartered in Adelaide, South Australia.

ABOUT THE JOB

As Digital Marketing Executive (USA), you’ll help plan, execute and evaluate marketing campaigns to generate leads, drive conversions and raise awareness of the company in the USA.

You will report to the company’s Director of Marketing in Australia and work with other team members in the marketing, sales, and learning departments.

This position will be mostly home-based so you need to have a home office setup that will allow you to work remotely.  Regular meetings will be conducted with team members in America, Australia and Asia via Skype and Zoom.

Some travel (both within the States and occasionally, to Australia) is expected.

Preference will be given to qualified candidates based in Cincinnati, Ohio or San Diego.

ABOUT YOU

Level of Experience

You should have a good track record of delivering successful marketing campaigns that convert leads to customers.

You should be able to plan, research, execute and evaluate marketing campaigns for both specific Makers Empire projects and Makers Empire in general. We’re looking for someone with both creative and analytical skills: you’ll need to demonstrate that you can create original, stand out campaigns, concepts and content, analyse their effectiveness, and suggest modifications as required.

As our primary customers are primary, elementary and middle schools and educations boards, B2B experience and/or experience in the Education sector would be helpful but is not essential.
