Here at the Co-op we believe that a life outdoors is a life well lived. We’re looking for a specialist to join our Direct Marketing team that contributes in communicating our passion for helping others get outside a little more.
If you’re an energetic, experienced direct/digital marketer with direct mail and/or email credentials, we’d love to chat with you. We’re looking for a contributor that takes pride in the details, enjoys staying organized and works well in spreadsheets. You’ll be managing the critical details of our work including priority product details, channel budgets and content assets. This role is on a high-performing team where team dynamics and collaboration are important to us. Being willing to jump in when the team needs you, is what we’re about and it doesn’t hurt having some fun along the way.
Knowing and loving the outdoors is not mandatory, but highly contagious.
