Marketing Specialist, Content Full-Time

Location: Calgary, AB

Category: Advertising / Branding, Communications, Marketing / Strategy

You are a superstar marketer who can create a range of content for print, web and social media. You are that rare breed of marketer who has both creative and critical prowess: you can analyze and advocate, position and persuade, create  killer content and review the results.  You sweat the small stuff and get the big picture, too. If making a difference matters to you and working with iconic F500 companies and charities to change the world sounds like an exciting adventure, then read on!

Who we are

Better Work and a Better World: at Benevity that’s what we’re all about. We’re a software company in the business of doing good, building better ways for companies to connect with their customers and employees around causes (we make “doing well by doing good” more than just a tagline!).  We’re growing fast and looking for more great people to join us.

We’re not Bono, just a passionate crew of workhorses out to change the world. We have that fun, flexible tech culture that people love (ok, some people – you know who you are!) – and we have a heart. We’re a registered B Corporation, which means we’re part of a new breed of companies committed to higher social and environmental standards.

You’ll join a dedicated, passionate team that creates innovative solutions (we were just honoured with our second TechRev Innovators Award) for our raving fans (er, clients). And you’ll get to rub shoulders with some of the most iconic and notable companies and charities in the world to help them make a difference (in even better ways). Our entrepreneurial environment appeals to self-driven, flexible team players who learn quickly, aren’t afraid to tackle hard problems and don’t mind wearing jeans to work. Sound cool? Join us!
