Marketing Project Manager
This is MadTree’s Marketing Project Manager. Does it sound like you?
You’re that friend or family member that is obscenely organized and can’t live without access to their digital calendar at all times. You think herding cats is fun and don’t understand why people think it’s a negative thing. You know how to motivate and influence others, even when they have completely different bosses and accountabilities, in order to check items off your list.
You know your way around campaigns and copy and designs and displays. You believe having your ducks in a row isn’t a phrase, it’s a lifestyle. You flex your left brain, but using your right brain is your flex.
MadTree is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce that inspires madness while being rooted in purpose. We offer a competitive compensation package plus great benefits like subsidized health insurance, a retirement plan with a match that begins day one, profit sharing, paid time off, and many other great perks.
