At Javelina, we advance equality and human dignity through social, political and economic change. We're seeking a new member of the herd who is driven to do just that. Above all else, we are looking for someone who values what we value: kindness, a strong sense of ownership over delivering a phenomenal product, working with a supportive team, always learning, and making a difference in the world.

Our clients are nonprofits, businesses, and political campaigns. We work with them to identify the change they want to see in the world and make it happen by bringing together strategies from the worlds of marketing and political campaigns. The foundation of this work is helping our clients identify their core purpose and developing messaging and creative content that powerfully communicates that both internally and externally.

Your role in the team will be to lead our clients in their traditional and digital marketing efforts. 

More specifically, you will:

CREATIVE PROCESSES

  • Lead the creative strategy for marketing and digital clients. This includes facilitating the planning of those projects and contributing to the overall strategy and content development
    • Digital: Develop and write programmatic, search, paid social, and OTT campaigns
    • Traditional: Write and implement general communications plans. This includes an understanding of various methods of marketing (mail, TV, radio, billboards, etc.) and the ability to discern which methods are appropriate for different situations
  • Review and finalize high-quality client work. You will oversee a wide range of written and graphic content, including web and social media content, long-form messaging materials, printed collateral, and recommendation memos.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

  • Create high-level project plans and manage the timeline, staffing, and budgets associated for marketing and/or digital clients.
  • Ensure scope of work is adhered to and manage changes to scope.
  • Build and maintain excellent customer service by practicing proactive communication and being responsive to client needs.
