Job Description

We are looking for a great Social Media Manager to join our team and lead our social media efforts and community engagement across the company. This role will be responsible for developing, executing and, measuring our strategies across owned social platforms to drive brand awareness, engagement, and advocacy for Markforged. You will play a key role in the content strategy, development and deployment across our channels – helping us create built-for-social content that reaches and engages the right audiences. This is an ideal role for someone who is self-motivated, creative, analytical, and collaborative. You should be very comfortable owning and running with initiatives. This is a great opportunity to be a part of a powerful growing company at a pivotal moment in its trajectory. Show us how you’d like to grow and use data from your performance to show us how you’d like to build out this team and make it a core driver in our marketing organization.

  • Monitor industry news and competitor social channels to ensure Markforged is part of relevant conversations and continuing to stay ahead of topics/trends in the additive industry.

Important Note:
Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point we’re getting at, it doesn’t hurt to take a chance and apply!

What you have:

  • Deep knowledge and passion for social media – native to the space
  • A powerful collaborator. Someone who can be an advocate for what our growing community needs and sell that in with a dynamic team internally
  • Driven to balance smart strategy with breakthrough content that performs against KPIs in addition to building the brand

  • Comfortable in a performance-based environment
  • Ability to manage a content calendar with daily postings across several platforms (for the right hire, there’s an opportunity to grow and add resources to manage day-to-day posting over time. At Markforged, we like to be hands-on first, before we create a plan to grow.)
