Digital Marketing Strategist

Mighty Citizen is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes everyone to our team. We strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQ and non-binary people, veterans, parents, and individuals with disabilities to apply. If you need reasonable accommodation at any point in the application or interview process, please let us know.

About You:

You are a master collaborator. Problem-solving is innate to you, and creativity and critical thinking are your secret weapons. Your ability to synthesize data and research is unparalleled. Naturally curious, you can easily see patterns and connections and have the ability to identify the most critical questions needed to develop a narrative in any campaign. Both intuitive and analytical, you thrive when driving results, with the understanding that strategy is not linear and that decisions are sometimes made with only some of the information desired. You don’t just focus on one path forward, you consistently bring to light what is not being considered, using research, data, and a customer-first focus to meaningfully connect channels and measure experiences.
