Reports To: Director of Communications

Carbon Lighthouse has been busy laying the foundation for significant growth in 2018. Our plans are ambitious. We are taking on an immense challenge – stopping climate change. The time is right for us to bring on a passionate and reliable teammate who thinks strategically about the big picture while keeping the trains running on time. You will help us achieve big goals starting now and for years to come. Perhaps you’re fed up working at an agency executing programs for clients you don’t feel passionate about. Or maybe you’re in-house at a company that doesn’t empower you to impact growth. You have a lot to offer. You can think on your feet. You can execute with grace and equanimity. You hold yourself to high standards. You want to grow. If this sounds familiar, we want to meet you.
Carbon Lighthouse is looking for a dynamic Marketing Communications Manager to support our rapidly growing Marketing function. In this role, you will oversee public relations campaigns, media relations, social media execution, event management and other marketing initiatives that support the broad awareness of Carbon Lighthouse. You will work in partnership with the Director of Communications and our sales, engineering and creative teams to support our business growth through clear, compelling and engaging communications.
You should have a keen ability to evaluate the task at hand to ensure it is driving the most value. You have strong project management and client service experience, whether supporting internal clients or an agency’s clients. You will manage external resources and agencies to help Carbon Lighthouse achieve broad and category awareness with key audiences across four industry verticals and three U.S. regions. As the fifth team member of the Carbon Lighthouse Marketing Team, you will contribute to a variety of marketing initiatives, including but not limited to digital marketing, content development, referral marketing, and brand positioning. You should have a strong communications background but also know how to adapt to the shifting needs of a fast-growing marketing function. As we continue to grow, you will be afforded many opportunities for career growth and specialization.
