(Nick Kelley)

Marketing Coordinator

Outside is looking to add a member to its Santa Fe-based marketing team. The Marketing Coordinator must be a tireless ambassador for Outside’s storytelling as well as an unrelenting taskmaster and a Type-A organizer. Sound like you? Then read on to join our team:

  • Hold the keys to the master calendar and enforce deadlines. We need someone who’s not afraid to project-manage all the stakeholders—between associate publishers, marketing staff, brands, and agencies—to make sure we never blow a deadline.
  • Help come up with creative, cross-platform marketing solutions, plans, and integrated branded content programs quickly. In order to keep up with the high-volume of RFPs we receive, we need to turn around compelling and concise proposals, many of which are idea-based and involve branded content and/or custom partnerships. 
  • Create, manage, and track all social promotions and related assets. This includes all native content as well as other marketing initiatives, including image selection, writing copy, and coordinating with social media editors.
  • Be the giveaways guru. Manage all aspects of the contests and sweepstakes we execute in partnership with clients.
  • Oversee the creation and coordination of all marketing-related eblasts and newsletters.
  • Track the progress and success for every client. You see every campaign from its inception to its wrap-up, where you’ll give the client, the marketing team, and the associate publisher summaries of how it all went.
  • Assist with coordination of all event-related activations and partnerships.
  • ​Help create case studies, campaign recaps, and all other marketing materials​.
  • 2 years marketing or journalism experience.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • Working knowledge of PowerPoint, Excel, Google Docs; familiarity with Facebook Insights and other social media analysis tools and platforms a bonus.
  • No telecommuting: this position is based in our headquarters in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Further Requirements
  • An editorial background and/or good sense for what makes a good story.
  • Familiarity and passion for the outdoor landscape, including news, brands, trends, influencers, and athletes
  • Eager to learn and accept new challenges, working both independently and as a member of a team.
  • Enthusiasm, personality, a passion for teamwork, and a positive attitude.
  • Excellent problem-solving capability.
  • An overarching ability to get sh*t done.
