CTO Connection: Startup Marketing Lead | Full time, Remote

Headquarters: Boulder, Co

URL: https://www.ctoconnection.com/

Role: Marketing Lead | Full time, Remote
Comp: $55-65k plus healthcare (if US based) & bonus 
Opportunity: Accelerate your career and your impact by joining us as our first full time marketing hire and scaling with the company and the team. We have a profitable business and an initial set of marketing (outreach and re-engagement) systems. We need you to run and improve the systems, and – over time – to hire and scale a team to support you.
Hi! My name’s Peter Bell. I’ve taught digital literacy and data science at Columbia Business School, ran the engineering team at General Assembly, built out remote first instructional and curriculum teams at Flatiron School and created books and videos for O’Reilly, Pearson, Pluralsight and more. https://www.linkedin.com/in/peterfbell/
Back in 2014, I founded CTO Connection as a hobby to run single day, single track in-person events for senior engineering leaders. The long term vision was always to build a community to help senior engineering leaders to share best practices for building and managing engineering teams. If software is “eating the world”, a great leverage point is to focus on helping engineering leaders to create better software and more effective and inclusive workplaces for their teams.
By the end of 2019, we’d got so much traction I had to give up the day job to focus on the business. We now have an online-first model (thanks covid!), are profitable, and it’s time to scale our systems – and our impact.
CTO Connection is a profitable startup that is building the premier educational community for senior engineering leaders. We have been running in-person CTO Summits since 2014, and now run online summits and are launching a platform to help senior engineering leaders to “share problems and get answers”. We’re looking for a smart, ambitious and passionate marketing lead to help to scale the business, with at least 1-2 years of marketing experience.
You’ll be a marketing generalist, responsible for operating our outreach pipeline (discovery, enrichment, refinement, and outreach), managing our content calendar and running our re-marketing systems to keep our members informed about upcoming events and other opportunities for learning and networking. You’ll also be running our social accounts and working with a freelance copywriter to promote our content, our events and our product offerings.
The ideal candidate will be detail oriented, able to run multiple projects simultaneously, and passionate about building the systems required to scale their impact. You should also be open to growing with the company and hiring a team to help you scale, although the position will be primarily an individual contributor for the first 9-12 months. You should also be very comfortable with technology. You don’t need to be a programmer, but we’re going to be using a lot of SaaS tools and we’re remote first, so you’re going to be spending a lot of time interacting with your laptop!
The compensation range for the role is $55k-$65k with full coverage of healthcare (if US based). There will also be some kind of bonus/incentive package depending on the company’s growth. You will need to be authorized to work wherever you’re based – at the moment we’re not yet ready to sponsor visas.
About you 
– You’ll need at least 1-2 years of work experience – ideally with a smaller agency or one or more early stage startups 
– You should have very strong written and verbal communication skills 
– You should have very strong analytical skills for identifying opportunities to improve our marketing systems
– You should be extremely self motivated. There will be daily standups, weekly 1:1’s and meetings to kick off and retrospect specific projects, but you’ll be responsible for managing your time and adding the maximum possible value across a range of projects
– You should also be passionate about the intersection of community, education and technology
– If you happen to have some technical skills (using GitHub, scripting in Python, etc) that’s a bonus, but not a requirement. 
The position is available immediately and we’d hope to extend a job offer to the right candidate within the month, so if you’re interested, apply now by filling out the form below!

Get The Guy / Matthew Hussey: Assistant Community Manager

Headquarters: Los Angeles, USA

URL: http://howtogettheguy.com

Are you a high energy, positive person with a friendly demeanor in writing and online? Do you thrive on working independently and maintain top-level discipline and reliability when there’s no boss looking over your shoulder? Do you enjoy connecting with people on social media? Would you be psyched to help support a community of smart, successful women seeking dating, relationship, and confidence advice? 
You might be the assistant community manager we’re looking for!
This is a bit of a hybrid role that requires an organized, independent self-starter with a high level of detail orientation. You’ll be taking care of the beating heart of our public community on social media – making sure support requests that come in through social get to our support team quickly, raising any bigger issues that come up, and sharing important feedback with the rest of the team. You’ll need to be responsive, reliable, and capable of keeping yourself disciplined. You must love being in near-constant digital communication and care deeply about getting it right with every individual member of our community, every time.
You’ll work closely with our Community Manager to moderate our social media communities during UK time zone mornings. It is essential that you can commit to being online starting at 9 AM UK Time. Weekend availability would be considered an asset (but not required). You won’t need to be handcuffed to your desk, but you will need to be reliably checking in and handling all comments that need addressing, as well as communicating with our Head of Social and your the Community Manager.
You’ll also be handling some social testimonial archiving, and this is where your detail orientation and independent discipline will shine. You’ll keep accurate records of social media testimonials we receive across all platforms, and be responsible for communicating changes in online sentiment with the social team. We will train you, but once we have, you’ll have fairly free rein over when this happens. If you’re a bit OCD and love the challenge of categorizing appropriately, noticing trends and taking initiative to really understand our follower’s preferences, this stuff will be a breeze.
The qualities we’re looking for include:
– Detail orientation; show us you care about getting the finer points right (like proper spelling of names and clean formatting for readability)
– Highly communicative and reliable, high digital availability
– Passion for the work we do and our community
– Extremely disciplined, with high ability and desire to work independently; you will not have someone looking over your shoulder, but the work must get done all the same! We will hold you accountable.
– Prior experience as a freelancer preferred
– Social media community management experience a plus
Responsibilities include:
– Comment moderation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, with special emphasis on making sure customer support requests are handled in a timely fashion and important feedback is passed on to relevant team members
– Double checking social media posts to make sure everything is working & looks beautiful
– Keeping detailed archive of social media testimonials
– Comment moderation/approval on our website blog
Why Join Us?
You’ll work remotely with a lot of flexibility. We are 100% remote, with team members based in LA, NY, the UK, Eastern Europe, and Asia. 
Make an impact – help women level-up in their relationships, self-esteem, and happiness.
Be part of a positive, upbeat team that deals with each other with respect and gratitude.
HOURS
This role is part-time freelance for 15 hours per week, the majority of which will consist of morning and daytime hours (9am – 5pm UK time) checking in on the social media community and any team meetings necessary. There is some potential for growth if you impress us, but this is unlikely to be a full-time role anytime soon.
To be considered, please write a cover letter to social@team.howtogettheguy.com as to why you’d be a good fit in the body of your email. DO NOT send a CV or other attachments (if you attach ANYTHING to it, your application will automatically not be read). We prioritize culture fit, high levels of attention to detail, and superstar-quality writing when selecting candidates. 
ABOUT US
Matthew Hussey / Get the Guy is a successful online dating and relationship advice company that helps women get the results they want in their love lives – but we don’t stop there. Nothing stays at the surface with us; we go deep and show our customers how to transform their confidence and self-esteem to live happier, more fulfilling lives overall. 
You’ll be writing to & chatting with our Head of Social, Celia Bradfield. Her favourite colour is pink, so she’d be pleased if you put that word somewhere in your subject line when sending your letter.
Looking forward to meeting you!

We are seeking a Community Manager with hands-on experience growing and engaging a members-only online community. The role will include creating and managing responses, activating and engaging the community, managing incentives, and delivering feedback and updates to the product development team.

You will be comfortable creating, planning, and executing community communication strategies.

You will need to be interested in cheerleading the freelancer community collectively and individually and will be up to date on the trends and current topics in this market with an interest in understanding all the segments and their attributes and behaviors.

This role will begin with a focus on growing members and their participation and engagement, especially in early user testing and consumer research gathering activities.

There will be a need for short and long-form content creation and identifying target members/influencers to help generate an active community that participates frequently.

Must be organized and efficient with an understanding of tracking relevant KPIs including what’s trending, what’s performing well, and where to pull insights from data.

For the right person, this role may grow to include broader content strategy, influencer management,  PR and partner collabs, and social media management.

You will bring your own positive energy to help shape the voice and communication with this group and you will play a critical role in connecting community feedback and research to product and marketing teams.

You will understand how to build a relationship and consumer trust with community members through a balance of content and comments.

We’d like to know that you can:

• Manage and plan content uploads to the community on a schedule and keep the community on track to participate and respond as needed.

• Lead community management on owned platforms, and have the ability to own the brand’s voice, and drive the conversation with followers.

• Participate in and understand freelance culture today, in all skill groups and roles – we’ll help with this.

• Identify unique and interesting opportunities for storytelling, and know how to capture them to create thumb-stopping content, while staying on-brand.

• Manage your own time.  Some days will have more hours than others, we expect that daily contact with the community members will be necessary but we will look for ways to support that need.

• Collaborate with a group of talented product and marketing leaders to grow the strategy and the value of the community.

• Participate in team communication and meetings.


The right candidate should also have:

• 2-5 years of community management experience preferably for an owned consumer app or technology, or member group where consumer research and feedback were carefully managed in the product design process.

• A true passion for online communities, bringing your own approach and POV.

• Mastery of the native features and functions of community tools, survey tools, and integrated communications.


 
Prerequisites

• Freelance, part to full-time contract, remote,  US (East Coast/Central timezone preferred)

• Ideally a bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Mass Communications, Journalism, or a relevant field.

• Passion for the future of work, finance, and education

• Strong organizational and time management skills, plus a self-starter, problem-solver mentality.
