DeepRoot Marketing Director
DeepRoot is a green infrastructure manufacturer advancing the integration of trees, soils, and stormwater in the built environment. We’re a growing organization with a strong track record of projects across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The company headquarters are in San Francisco, CA, with additional offices in Minneapolis, MN, Vancouver, Canada, and London, England. Our sales process is complex and our clients range from engineers and landscape architects to cities, universities, hospitals, developers, contractors, and distributors.
The Marketing Director is an experienced marketing professional who with energy, creativity, and savvy, will lead the development and implementation of a marketing and communication strategy that will attract, engage, and retain customers for DeepRoot products and services. This person understands a multistep sales process with a diverse set of stakeholders and end users.
The person who will thrive in this role enjoys both big-picture strategy and the actual creation of content. A given week could include anything from developing marketing strategies for specific geographies in multiple countries, to writing or editing blog posts, to interviewing contractors to better understand how to create the next installation ‘how to’ manual. We have undertaken initiatives in the past like our blog (www.deeproot.com/blog), which became the dominant driver of traffic to our website and is an industry-wide resource, our podcast (www.remarkableobjects.com) and a series of impactful webinars (deeproot webinars). We are looking for someone who has a similar drive and ability to conceive and develop new, impactful projects to drive leads and sales growth.
The right person will be hands-on, highly organized, and motivated to contribute to building DeepRoot as a growing business. They’re collaborative, a hard worker, and a little competitive. They have a proven track record developing the voice and visual identity of a business, a strong editorial muscle, and an ability to discern how to turn information into content. They are an excellent written and spoken communicator. They understand the nature of the product lifecycle overtime and how the messaging changes with that arc. They are a true believer in DeepRoot and committed to representing our voice, perspective, and approach across various platforms and to a diverse audience.
We are location flexible! Travel to our Minneapolis and/or San Francisco offices is required based on business needs.
