Job Description

Position: Marketing Associate

Ready to use your communication or marketing experience to build a better future?
There’s a solution to the childcare crisis in America -it’s MyVillage, a new way to solve a very old problem: how to create more safe, loving and affordable childcare options for families. Supporting our Marketing team to develop and manage marketing MyVillage programs to families as well as assisting the Marketing Manager with our lead acquisition strategy is how you’ll be a part of the influential team working to rebuild the village – one child at a time.

You will fall in love with this role if you consider yourself a generalist marketer that thrives in a fast-paced start-up environment focussed on connecting families with exceptional childcare programs - this is the role for you.  As a Marketing Associate, you will support the team in executing strategies to achieve lead and sales targets for our key customers while also helping create our brand as the face of high-quality, in-home childcare.

We are looking for someone who:

    • Is a Jack or Jill of all trades: You are a passionate doer who loves a big picture solution but thrives on executing and getting things done.  You are a self-starter and have experience writing communication and supporting teams to see a strategy come to life through actions.
    • Prefers to jump in the deep end: You love diving into a project and learning even when you’re pushed outside of your comfort zone.  You’re not afraid to take chances, test strategies and use data to drive decisions moving forward. You’re a self-starter but know when to manage up and ask for help to execute and achieve on short timelines.
    • Loves fast-paced, innovative teams: As a start-up company, we are building something new that requires agility and flexibility as we learn. We need someone who is happy to iterate, asks questions, comes from a place of “can do” and optimism - and improves and shares that knowledge to create improved processes & outcomes to achieve our goals.
    • Cares about more than just a bottom line: As a mission-driven business, we care about growth and goals, but not at the expense of a high-quality experience for our most precious asset, MyVillage educators and the children they care for.  If you care about changing the world for the better and working with a team of mission-based individuals, you’ll love working here.

What is expected of you:

  • Promote and market MyVillage programs to families in need of childcare to help fill much desired openings in tight timelines, requiring resourcefulness, creativity, superior writing skills and an impeccable attention to detail so as not to let anything fall through the cracks.
  • Use data-driven insights to guide your approach and report back to your management team
  • Work directly with our Educator community to gather feedback on marketing needs for their programs and develop tools to increase success on the ground in filling their childcare programs.
  • Write content and build/send automated email campaigns for the marketing team.
  • Work with other internal teams, external vendors & contractors as well as partners to execute marketing strategies - requiring someone who is highly personable, approachable and eager to start conversations and meet new people
  • Utilize platforms such as Campaign Monitor (email), WordPress (content) & Salesforce (CRM)
  • Must be located in the Denver, CO or Bozeman, MT area.

The perks:

  • Flexible workplace with a geographically dispersed team co-located in two awesome cities.
  • Health insurance & a “take it as you need it” vacation policy
  • Stock options granted to all full-time employees
  • The opportunity to directly improve millions of lives. By hand selecting the workforce that will bring quality childcare at an affordable price to over a million children in the US. Few other activities can provide as fundamental of an impact to human lives as this.
  • Some of the smartest, most committed, and hardest working co-workers in a distributed environment.
  • Work for an innovative, mission-based start-up in a fast-paced, exciting environment.
