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're looking for a strategic, consumer-centric marketer to lead our marketing initiatives that drive our programs and global community awareness, engagement, and growth. This leader will lead the development of 360 marketing campaigns from strategy to tactics to activation. Our ideal candidate combines "big picture" thinking and an equally strong "doing" to develop the strategy and roll up their sleeves to implement projects. The leader will oversee a comprehensive brand plan, calendar as well as lead go-to-market plans. The Director of Marketing will partner closely with cross-functional partners to advance the mission of SGFF and bring our programs to women across the globe. 

It is an exciting time at SGFF.  With our expanding portfolio of programs, we have the potential to reach more audiences and make a difference in the lives of women around the globe. If our mission motivates you and you love delivering world-class marketing programs, we’d like to talk to 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.
