You’re also a strong leader who wants to get to know the capabilities and talents of each person on the team and create one amazingly effective strategy to grow MeetEdgar’s audience and user base.
If you want to help us help entrepreneurs and their businesses succeed beyond their wildest dreams by banishing social media busywork forever, keep reading!
Your core, fundamental responsibilities can be summed up as: 1) GROWTH. We need your high-level, big-picture strategy to turn $3M ARR into $6M, and then $10M and beyond! Our hard-working team will have your back with tons of fun, new, creative ideas to explore - plus the data you need to look for opportunities, test, and validate results. Your job will be to weave those ideas into a cohesive strategy that supports our big MeetEdgar vision for the future and to set in motion the actions we're taking today keep us on the right path.
2) COACHING. You make sure your team is happy, thriving, and clear on what it means to be knocking it out of the park for MeetEdgar. You’ll share constructive, actionable feedback with them regularly, and help them each stay accountable to the business outcomes they own. You’re their secret weapon when it comes to accelerating their career growth and achieving their full potential here at MeetEdgar - and you take this responsibility as seriously as delivering any other business result.
3) ALIGNMENT. You will work alongside other business leaders at the company to ensure that every department’s priorities, goals, and objectives build on each others’ successes and drive us all toward our big ol' grand vision. There’ll be times when the smartest thing we can do as a company is rally together to solve a problem, and your job will be to figure out how the marketing team can best contribute. You’ll be in constant communication with all other departments so they know what’s going on within marketing and vice-versa.
