Marketing Coordinator

Opportunity knocks loud here — grow your career with us.

Foundry is looking for a Marketing Coordinator to assist with creating and executing our digital communications strategy. The ideal candidate in this newly created, entry-level position is a highly organized problem solver with fresh ideas and excellent written and oral communication skills. Preferred qualifications include experience with creating content for social media, blogs, and newsletters, as well as an interest in communications strategy and storytelling. This is a highly collaborative role so a curious nature, willingness to try new things, and ability to work as part of a growing team is essential.

Requirements

Agency experience preferred.

This is not a remote nor work-from-home position; our collaborative creativity is multiplied exponentially by being in the room together, feeding off each others’ energy and building on each others’ ideas. This is a 40-hour per week, full-time position based in Downtown Minneapolis. This position will report to Foundry’s Director of Communications.

Who we are

Foundry creates digital products with sincere empathy for the people who’ll use them. We look for ever-curious lifelong learners to add their talents to our team. Our clients bring us real-world problems to solve, not lists of requirements to implement. We dig into their goals and culture, asking lots of questions until we know we’re proposing just the right solution. Then we make it happen, pretty fast. We help our clients make beautiful, impactful, elegant, well-conceived custom software.

We don’t do staff augmentation, except in reverse when our clients come work and collaborate with us. We tend not to work remotely, but when life happens – take care of it, family first. We keep sane hours and enjoy the occasional happy hour, but mostly we just work hard/smart from 9ish to 5ish and then we go home – or out to play.

Our company culture revolves around creative problem solving, collaborative thinking, and hard work mixed with an appropriate dose of irreverence. We take our work seriously but insist on having some serious fun while doing it. Silliness often occurs, yet stuff still gets done, well.

We define and design all that we make, always taking those steps in that deliberate order. Everything Foundry produces is crafted with attention-to-detail by people who genuinely care about creating positive outcomes and real impact. We’re dedicated to partnering with companies in the business of doing good. We earn our clients’ trust to turn their vision into something amazing.

Enough about us, more about you!
