Your Mission

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

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. 

Do your conversion rates intimidate the Pope? You know that social media marketing is more than pretty pictures, endless copy, and vanity metrics. Your strategic brain maps out conversion funnels with lead-nurturing workflows and automations 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. Aka you get tangible results.

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! 

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, conversion rates, and ROI. 

Your Day-to-Day

The position will work collaboratively with the web content creator and digital marketer to tie together marketing initiatives. The position requires flexibility to adapt to trends, news, and company news/initiatives as well as project management, creativity, a sense of humor, and a strong commitment to serving our Explorer Chicks.
