As a Content Marketing Manager at Awesome Motive, you’ll be responsible for overseeing the strategy and results of our content marketing across about 3 of our brands, and directly supervising the writer for each brand. You’ll work closely with these team members to help guide their professional development, ensure their individual goals are consistently met/exceeded, and continually reinforce a positive, team-oriented culture driven by our company values.
We are looking for an experienced people manager who has already held leadership responsibilities, but isn't afraid to dive in and do the work hands-on when needed.
This is also an SEO-focused position where you will be responsible for growing targeted organic traffic and conversions on multiple websites, via blog and email content, on-page SEO, and CRO. This will require strong copywriting and Google Analytics skills.
