We’re searching for a proactive and experienced Digital Marketing Manager who gets her thrills from significantly increasing our audience, connecting to the needs of our Explorer Chick community, nurturing the guest journey, converting those sweet sweet bookings, and getting a little scrappy to crush sales goals.

This is a fast-paced environment perfect for a restless mind. You’ll be managing multiple projects in a culture that welcomes change, audacious thinking, and daily SHE-nanigans.

Your Mission

Come at us with your wild hog energy! Multi-platform marketing campaigns, community engagement, lead generation, analytics, crushing goals––is it getting hot in here?

You’ll co-work alongside our current digital marketing manager – digital badasses, party of two! – to develop and implement data-driven strategies and creative campaigns for social media, email marketing, and innovative digital projects that’ll make overworked women pay attention and BOOK.

You’ll obsess over our brand’s voice injecting your rowdy sense of humor while conjuring content that empathizes with and celebrates the women who travel with us. Cultivating content that addresses the inner cynic and encourages a moment of all-out bravery is our secret sauce. That’s how we build instant trust from booking to boots in the dirt. So beyond selling pictures of a gorgeous trip, you will continually sell the soul and sisterhood of women’s adventure travel.

Bring on your off-the-wall, unconventional, and new ideas that your current employer is too boring to consider. We are down to experiment and get weird to smash KPIs as long as you are tracking those metrics to understand if you’re giving our Explorer Chicks what they want!

Do your conversion rates intimidate the Pope? You know that digital marketing is more than pretty pictures, endless copy, and vanity metrics. Your strategic brain maps out cross-platform sales funnels with lead nurturing workflows and automated email sequences for sh*ts and giggles. Not only can you co-conceive our next 2.6 million views viral reel, but you relish in the opportunity to capture new eyeballs from Top of Funnel content to lovingly guide them through the buyer journey and eventually to our newest booked fangirlies.

Analytics is your BFF in understanding how our Explorer Chicks find us, what content is performing, and which platforms drive them to eventually book and rebook. A/B testing and routine audits are your secret weapon in fortifying future revenue growth.

Your Day-to-Day

Developing a robust social strategy across platforms, community management of current channels (Insta, Facebook, TikTok), co-creating all organic and paid social content, planning and executing email marketing campaigns, developing lead gens, evaluating social/email performance metrics, marketing new and existing trips, promoting flash/annual sales, strategizing new ideas/collabs for growth, reporting analytics to us simpletons, and making sure we don’t look like grandmas on TikTok.

Our Dream Candidate

  • Can anticipate women’s needs with humor and empathy
  • Motivated by crushing goals, maximizing ROI, and LOVES an A/B test
  • Will incessantly try to beat KPIs for future revenue growth
  • Routinely runs analytics to know what’s pushing the needle and what’s dead in the water
  • Strategically connects the dots and traffic across platforms – social, email, website, webinars, ads
  • Knows how to please a qualified lead at every stage of the sales funnel
  • Can happily go it alone but lives for a prolific collab
  • Never settles, but gets after it with a mix of daring ideas and the practice of Kaizen
