What We Need

Codeword agency is growing and we’re in need of a creative, experienced individual to lead our agency marketing efforts as Marketing Director.


As a senior-level strategist, consultant and implementer, the successful candidate will manage high level marketing strategies for the agency, as well as leading day-to-day execution across our paid/owned/earned channels, with support from our world-class team. 

The Marketing Director will report directly to the partners, and work closely with agency leadership both at Codeword and at our parent company, WE Communications. Codeword hasn’t had a marketing lead before (we haven’t done much marketing at all), so there will be plenty of initial work to help us refine our brand, solidify our priorities for 2022, create a marketing plan to support those priorities, and then develop the processes to put the plan into action. 

If you’re excited about that kind of wide-open opportunity, then you might be a good fit! Let's chat:

What you'll be doing

  • Lead Codeword’s marketing efforts across social, content, events, PR website, and paid media. We have a great team to help with execution.
  • Help us refine our Codeword brand and voice, and act as brand steward for agency communications. 
  • Work closely with HR and agency leadership to develop smart, creative recruiting campaigns. This is super high-priority for us.
  • Manage agency marketing collateral like pitch decks, case studies, and award submissions (though we don’t see this as a sales or new business role).



What you've been able to accomplish

  • 7+ years’ experience in a creative or communications agency environment.
  • Director-level work skills — you’ll need to be organized, a friendly collaborator, and a skilled problem-solver. 
  • Creative writing skills, as well as strategic brand-building experience.
  • Proven experience managing cross-channel brand communications. 
  • Familiarity with all the usual digital and social platforms.
  • Familiarity with the top marketing industry media publications, events, and conferences. 
  • Familiarity with digital strategy best practices.
