Someone who can be independently resourceful.

A creative visionary who can identify and solve problems.

A collaborator, a strategist, and a big thinker.

Background

TrailBlaze Creative, (TBC) an independent marketing and communications firm, seeks a talented individual to assist in developing new and unique marketing journeys for our clients. As a firm dedicated to lifting the communities in which we serve, our team members have a passion for solving community challenges, using marketing, communications, and technology to find success. Our team is collaborative, agile, and dynamic with an entrepreneurial spirit that serves to benefit our clients. We’re right in that sweet spot of industry experience and youthful curiosity that keeps us researching and learning about new trends. We’re fun people who create fun stuff. We are not a typical agency. We are more of a think tank that uses marketing and communications to solve challenges that organizations face.

In the last year, we’ve tackled some major problems for our clients including bridging the digital divide in Pittsburgh, driving economic recovery efforts in communities across North America, attracting underserved populations to new workforce opportunities, assisting small businesses to pivot from brick and mortar to online sales, and much, much more. If this kind of work excites you, then we should talk. Most of our work includes teaming with nonprofit clients on complex issues. This position is no exception. While TrailBlaze Creative will be the employer for this position, a portion of their time will support the data and graphic design needs of our nonprofit partner and client, New Sun Rising who will also be participating in the hiring process.

New Sun Rising (NSR) is an innovative nonprofit intermediary that helps communities both lead and benefit from the changes they wish to see. They provide capacity-building services to over 150 nonprofit, social enterprise, and collaborative leaders each year while providing accessible funding programs that reduce barriers to financial capital. New Sun Rising recognizes that not all people and places enjoy the same level of access to the information, technology, and networks necessary to increase their impact. In response, they have grown their commitment to data utilization and creative advocacy over the past several years. Their goal is to help disinvested communities organize around their vision and better absorb all forms of capital to power regenerative development initiatives.

New Sun Rising is a small team of passionate people committed to the core values of an equitable + inclusive society, adaptive processes, and asset-based strategies. We work to help local people build Vibrant Communities by strengthening their culture, promoting sustainability, and creating opportunity, as measured and coordinated through the Sustainable Development Goals.

Lead Data Analyst + Designer

This position exists at the intersection of data and design, with the ideal candidate being able to assess data, understand trends, explore data gaps, challenge data bias, and tell compelling stories using graphic design functions. This position is ideal for data techies with a passion and skillset for graphic design and storytelling. Since it is a bit unique, we are looking for the “right fit”. We recognize this is a unique combination of skillsets, but when we find the right fit, we will accomplish some amazing work together! We anticipate this position will be focused on data 40% of the time and design 60% of the time.

If this kind of work excites you, then we should talk.

While this job description is titled for a “Director of Marketing” position, you will actually be serving in this role for our clients. Many organizations, especially the new and small organizations with whom we work, lack the internal capacity for the strategic guidance of marketing and communications activities. You will be helping to draft and execute strategic marketing plans, troubleshoot organizational issues/gaps, and manage organizational needs to build successful campaigns and capacity in an efficient way for organizations.

The TrailBlaze Marketing Director-in-ResidenceSM model provides the capacity needed, both strategic and tactical, to manage the regular needs of an organization. TrailBlaze appoints one person to serve as the Marketing Director for organizations. This Director attends internal team meetings, represents the organization to external stakeholders as appropriate, provides strategic marketing direction and planning, and prioritizes and manages the tactical needs of the organization. Augmenting the marketing capacity gap with our professional Marketing Director-in-Residence, organizations receive executive-level strategic guidance and the project management necessary to implement the strategy. Our professionals work to understand the needs of the brand and organization and craft a strategy to systematically address the needs of the organization.

So, you will be serving as a Marketing Director for several organizations. But, we are also a small firm, so we pitch in together on all kinds of projects. Our entire team has a strategic mindset, but we are also comfortable in website code, graphic design, developing communications, and social media. We are agile, flexible, and work with passion to adopt any and all challenges for our clients as our own. We want the same from you!
