Creative Marketing Manager (Pittsburgh or Remote)
Deeplocal is seeking a Creative Marketing Manager to help with daily operations, development, and execution of Gumband marketing efforts.
Spun out of an award-winning creative technology agency, Gumband is the first operating system for interactive environments and experiences. We work with innovative brands to connect, elevate, and humanize their physical spaces. In 2021, the product was launched and obtained backing from WPP’s Product Innovation Board.
This role presents a unique opportunity to join a fully-backed SaaS startup and play a key role in the development of its visual identity and user interface. With Gumband, we are creating a category and looking for individuals with a desire to operate as innovators in an emerging global marketplace. Because the product was incubated at Deeplocal, Gumband team members will also have the benefit of tapping into Deeplocal’s expertise as an interactive experience developer for some of the world’s top brands, including Google, Nike, Meta, TikTok, and others.
This role will report to Gumband’s Managing Director and collaborate with creative, account, and product team members. The Marketing Manager is responsible for executing Gumband’s marketing strategy using creative tactics, effectively communicating the brand to clients, partners, industry, and staff.
Candidates must have a background in marketing, PR, and/or creative writing; an appreciation and eye for good visual aesthetics and design; and experience writing on-brand, promotional copy. We are looking for candidates who have worked in the field for 3-5 years. Recent grads with internship experience in a comparable setting are also encouraged to apply.
Ideally, this position is based in Pittsburgh, PA, but outstanding remote candidates will also be considered.
