You will provide close support to the CEO and other sales personnel throughout the sales process with potential Marketing Services clients. You will actively participate in company-wide strategic planning and internal marketing efforts.

Details

QUALITIES WE’RE EXPECTING FROM YOU:

  • A Desire to Learn: Our team is a team of researchers and learners, and we need it because we work in an ever-changing industry. Strategies that worked a year ago can become obsolete overnight. We need you to be passionate about learning. If you don’t know the answer to a problem, we need to be able to trust you to learn how to find the solution. You will also need to stay up-to-date with the newest strategies in marketing (but be discerning enough to tell the difference between a trend and a good strategy).
  • Always Ready for More: As a company, we don’t settle for “good enough.” We tell our clients right away that we will always be working to perfect their websites, campaigns, and strategies so they can more effectively reach their goals. We ask the same thing of our team members. From implementers to team leaders to senior management, we encourage growth, and we are here to support your journey to becoming better at what you do.
  • Team-minded Perspective: Our company’s mission is to support others’ strengths. We are here to support our clients’ strengths by handling the aspects of their business that they find frustrating or discouraging. The same is true with our team members. We believe that people find the most fulfillment in their jobs, and the most satisfaction in their lives, when they are able to optimize to their strengths. In our company, we try to the best of our ability to fit our team members where their strengths can shine. As a result, our team members’ strengths work together to cover each other’s weaknesses.
  • Responsiveness: This role allows the flexibility of the place and time in which you perform your work. However, 20-30 hours of work will be expected from you each week. Calls, emails, and Slack messages from clients and team members must be responded to within one business day. You will also be required to attend two recurring weekly meetings.

SKILLS WE’RE EXPECTING FROM YOU:

  • Marketing Experience: We need you to have a track record of building effective strategies that will get our clients the results they are expecting. We’re looking for someone who has at least 3 years of experience in digital marketing. This experience may include working at a marketing agency, within a marketing department, or as a freelancer. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in account management. Other desirable skills include Google Analytics analysis, Google Ads management, Facebook Ads management, and building CRM automations.
  • Creative Strategy: This position requires creativity. We work together to provide solutions for our clients, but you must be able to take initiative in helping us find those solutions. In our company, our team members have the flexibility to try new things because we turn failures into learning experiences. All we require is that you be able to provide some reasoning for why you think the strategy will work so that we can set realistic goals for success.
  • Client Communication: In this position, you will be working very closely with our clients and managing client relationships. Our customers’ best interest is at the center of what we do. You must bring that same care into every conversation you have with them, while also ensuring the success of the contract. You must be able to keep clients on goal and on strategy, and not let them (or us) get distracted by “nice to have” projects. You must be able to clearly explain why we are implementing certain strategies when clients push back. You must also be willing to occasionally have some uncomfortable conversations with clients in order to keep projects on time and within budget.
  • Competent and Caring Team Member: We’re looking for someone who has the experience, competence, character, and confidence to join our Marketing Services team to work hard and produce consistently excellent work while at the same time cultivating an environment where each team member is uniquely appreciated and supported, and where each team member’s passion for and engagement in their work is encouraged.

YOUR JOB LOCATION:

All work will be performed remotely. You will be responsible to provide your own internet connection and quiet work space for client meetings.  Ingenium will provide a computer, email address, and access to cloud-based client documentation, project management tools, and Slack. 

Should you need to travel to meet with a prospective client (at the discretion of the sales representative), car travel will be compensated according to the IRS standard business mileage rate. Other expenses (including meals) will need to be approved by the CEO in advance.

COMPENSATION:

For the first 90 days you will be compensated at a rate of $25.00 per hour. 

After the initial 90 days, your hourly rate will be reevaluated and may be increased up to $35 based upon your job performance. 

An employer-matching 401(k) retirement plan is available.

Our team members each have a particular area of focus, but we apply a collaborative, holistic approach to serving our clients’ businesses.

We’re passionate about a few things, such as: working hard with excellence and ingenuity, investing ourselves in our local community, helping small businesses and their owners and employees truly flourish, treating everyone with grace and dignity, and creating a flexible and supportive work environment where families can thrive.

    • Various projects as assigned

This is a part-time position (15-20 hours per week); an additional 5-10 hours per week may be added on top of the base hours in the short-term as consistency and attention to detail is demonstrated in the role. Longer-term, this role has the potential to go full-time if mutually desired.

Requirements: 

  • Interest in a 2-year minimum employment commitment
  • Significant (but not exclusive) availability during business hours (Eastern time) and ability to have a consistent but flexible weekly schedule
  • Pleasant, professional demeanor and excellent verbal/written communication skills
  • Kindly assertive and consistent in following up with clients regarding items due

Compensation & Benefits: 

  • Minimum pay of $25/hour, with potential for higher earnings based on experience

  • For local candidates, working part-time in our office in downtown Winchester is an option. 
  • Kind, supportive, and encouraging colleagues and management.
  • Management that prioritizes your career development.
  • Being part of a wonderful team with a strong drive for excellence, hitting our goals, helping others, and building community.

  • You have been commended by employers, colleagues, and clients for your exceptional attention to detail.
  • You are innately curious and always learning and then applying what you learn.
  • You genuinely care about helping others (clients, colleagues, and our strategic partners) succeed in life, not “getting what’s yours” without regard to the needs of others.
  • New challenges don’t intimidate you, nor does working with other smart, hardworking people.
  • Ambiguity in your work assignments is a positive that frees you up to exercise your independent problem-solving skills, not a negative that causes you unhealthy stress or increases your overall dependency on others.
  • People you work with commend your strong work ethic and positive attitude.
  • You are trustworthy and honest to a fault, and you have an excellent reputation.
  • You want to work for a small business employer and serve small business clients. Enterprise employers and enterprise clients are not what you’re aiming for.

Our Hiring Process (generally this takes 2-3 weeks): 

  • Submit a resume, cover letter & at least 3 references (current/former employer(s) and/or client references are required; you may also submit one personal reference if you desire). 
  • If we are interested in exploring your candidacy further, we’ll invite you to attend a 1-hour initial interview with our Manager of Accounting Services and Chief of Staff.
  • If everyone still wants to move forward, then we’ll pay for you to take an online assessment (TTI TriMetrix DNA); of course, we will share your results with you. We will also call your references at this point (please let them know we’ll be reaching out).
  • Within 5-7 days of your initial interview, you will attend a one-hour “Company Culture & TTI Debrief” interview with two members of our leadership team.
  • At this point, we’ll take three days to allow everyone a chance to step back and fully process our decision. After those three days, we will reach out to you with our decision.
  • If we decide to offer you the position, you’ll attend a final interview with our CEO and Manager of Accounting Services to discuss details of our offer, our onboarding process, and to answer any final questions you may have.
  • Once you have accepted the offer, we will also send you a background check to complete.

Our marketing team will help you stay up-to-date with the newest strategies in marketing and what’s working well for our clients.
