Alignable is looking for an experienced Community Marketer to ideate, conceptualize, design and build out our grassroots member advocate programs. We are looking for a candidate who has the empathy to get in the mind of small businesses and help them solve problems at scale.
Who We Are:
Alignable is the world’s largest small business network marketplace with over 5 million small business owners across 30,000+ communities in North America. Members depend on Alignable to make meaningful local connections, generate customer referrals, attract prospects, and gain access to all the resources needed to be successful in business.
Small businesses give our communities character– generating local jobs and supporting local causes. They’re the beating heart of the global economy representing 50% of GDP and 65% of all new jobs. Their owners are creators, risk-takers, and, always, problem-solvers. They’re under-resourced, yet undeterred. We want to give back to these small business owners.
Our mission is to support their ongoing success by providing recommended resources, highly-rated tools, and an engaged, supportive peer network – it’s a difference our members experience every day. Whether it’s hearing from a fellow business owner who’s overcome a similar problem, reading a credible opinion on a vendor, or sourcing great ideas to grow sales, Alignable members can count on each other for empathetic, pragmatic advice.
If you want to empower the small business owner through a social media network unlike any other, let’s talk.
Alignable has a dynamic and exciting growth environment where you will work with an extremely talented and friendly team of engineers, product managers, and marketers including startup veterans (Invisalign, Constant Contact, PayPal, Wayfair). Our offices are in Boston — across the street from North Station.
About the Go To Market Team
Alignable’s Go To Market team uses a two-tired approach (air cover & groundswell) to drive growth, engagement, and monetization. The current members of the team include: public relations and content (user and seo). You’ll work closely with Product Managers & Marketers, Customer Support, Sales & Marketing, Engineering, and the executive team on a daily basis.
