Marketing /
The Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation works to build a more equal and resilient world. We bring people together to support each other through three key initiatives, LeanIn.Org, OptionB.Org, and the Dave Goldberg Scholarship Program.
We are looking for a Director of Growth Marketing to join our team. The ideal candidate is a strategic marketer who understands how to acquire, retain, and cross-sell consumers across the entire customer journey. This marketer brings a powerful retail instinct, understanding how to position and sell our value proposition in an engaging way, and balances brand and performance metrics. The ideal candidate thrives on "cracking the code" to uncover opportunities, optimize websites, lead experiments to test/learn, and scaling tactics to unlock growth.
This newly created position reports to the VP of Marketing and is a member of the marketing leadership team. In addition, this leader regularly engages with cross-functional partners and a website agency. 
If you are a resourceful self-starter that thrives on the opportunity to build demand and make a difference in the world, we'd love to meet you!

Due to COVID-19, our team is working remotely (on PDT hours) through December 2021. Closer to the end of the year, we'll reevaluate this approach. And longer-term we're planning to operate as a hybrid team, with some team members working in-person and some working remotely, depending on the nature of their role, their leadership responsibilities, and the composition of their team. For people who work in-person, we'll maintain our standard schedule of three in-office and two work-from-home days.
