Erem Brand Marketing Manager

Job Overview

Erem Company Overview

Founded by the family that started and ran Timberland, Erem is a new, direct-to-consumer outdoor performance gear company focused on the desert. Erem’s mission is to enable people to experience the beauty, vastness, and extremes of the desert while positively impacting people, place, and planet. Erem’s first product is a hiking boot that sets a new standard in both desert performance and environmentally sustainable outdoor gear. 

Our team works remotely but we are a very close-knit group; we have huge ambitions and take every chance we can to spend time outdoors. We are now looking to add an extraordinary brand marketing  talent to our team as we prepare to launch. If you are a desert lover + outdoor enthusiast, are motivated to build a world class brand with social + environmental impact at its core, have experience with DTC brands, and are a move-fast-and-break things kind of person, then we want to hear from you.

  1. To develop, execute, and distribute engaging and inspiring brand + product stories

    1. Help set content strategy across digital channels, including advertising, email, site, social, blog, and more

    2. Develop, maintain, and operate brand editorial calendar to support 365-day business

    3. Provide creative direction and lead execution of day-to-day and hero content creation including blog posts, website enhancements, campaign photo shoots and brand videos

    4. Manage distribution of content through all key marketing channels

  2. To build and execute brand and product GTM activation plans, which will include owned digital channels, partnerships, consumer promotions, experiential events, and more

    1. Manage product GTM activations across conversion touchpoints

    2. Manage and operate paid influencer and ambassador marketing efforts from brief to daily management

    3. Engage with official non-profit partners as Erem’s point-person; you will work with partner to create content, throw events, and more

    4. Manage brand collaboration program including briefing, partner recruitment, resourcing, and daily management 

    5. Manage and operate Erem’s “Pro” program (offering gear to outdoor industry professionals, and B2B outfits)

As an experienced marketing generalist on a small team, you will also be asked to lead various other 1-off projects and to roll up your sleeves and pitch-in on just about everything, including the Erem Marketplace (marketplace of 3rd party vendors on our site), email, loyalty programs, PR, events, and more.

The right person for this role is an experienced, self-motivated, ambitious, fast-moving marketer that:
