Digital Marketing Specialist in Boston

The thoughtbot marketing team is growing! We need a digital savvy marketer to help us increase awareness and generate leads from the right online channels as well as optimize the thoughtbot web presence for maximum impact.

The thoughtbot blog gets ~2M uniques a year, our Twitter account has 48,000 followers, and our Playbook is widely read and shared. Our podcasts receive ~20,000 listens each week.

thoughtbot has a fantastic culture of content creation and knowledge sharing, but distribution is often “one and done”. You will enjoy the benefits of a stocked content treasure trove, an established brand, and a rich website while improving how and when we engage with our audience online, ultimately growing our acquisition and conversion rates.

thoughtbot is a product design and development consultancy with a 15 year legacy of helping startups and enterprises alike (including many of your favorite brands) turn their ideas into the right web and mobile products. We are a global company that operates locally in Austin, Boston, NYC, San Francisco, Raleigh, and London.

  • Paid digital channels

We value work life balance and working at a sustainable pace. There are many marketing opportunities for you to take on in this role, but we expect you to identify the highest priority projects and experiments to work on at a given time so that you are working at a reasonable, 40 hour per week pace.
