The Opportunity

Modern Tribe is currently seeking a full-time Marketing Director to expand our marketing capabilities and drive new revenue opportunities across multiple lines of business. If implementing growth plans across multiple teams is your jam and you’re based in North America, let’s talk.

You’ll know this is the right role for you if you thrive on creative thinking, long-range strategic planning, campaign development, team management, and design-forward execution. You’ll get your hands dirty. This isn’t an armchair role.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for leading the marketing strategy of our digital products business, developing marketing offerings and capabilities for our services business, and assessing new SaaS-based business development opportunities.
