You will:

    • Work with Marketing and Communications teams to ideate unique, shareable and stand-out creative around Boulevard campaigns, partnerships, advertising, and social channels.
    • Concept and collaborate with copywriters, designers, art directors, photographers, and stakeholder leads.
    • Work with product marketing managers to ensure creative concepts are on brand and strategically sound
    • Lead marketing initiatives, including cohesive assets for social, email, blog, printed collateral and more.

    • You have great attention to detail, even (and especially!) on tight timelines.
    • Sense of humor preferred. Ok, required.
    • Scrap factor: You are not precious about design and are happiest working with a team to build bold, iconic brand creative.
