Job Title: Marketing Manager / Marketing Senior Manager
Organization: Seiler LLP
Location: San Francisco, CA; Redwood City, CA; or San Jose, CA


The Marketing Manager / Senior Manager (marketing manager) will report to the Director of Marketing. The focus of the role is to support the Director of Marketing on strategic work while serving as a leader in the execution of various programs, strategies, projects, and initiatives within Seiler’s marketing and business development functions. The firm is on a growth trajectory, and we’re looking for a specialist who can not only help us support these expansion opportunities but also do so evermore effectively, efficiently and beautifully. This position is meant to build on the team’s existing marketing operations foundation and move it forward.

The marketing department is a small team, and we are looking for a seasoned marketer with the ability to seamlessly move from strategic planning to execution. The ideal candidate will have broad knowledge of many marketing functions with strengths/specialization in a few.

Currently, the marketing team oversees a vast array of activities, including the content, website, events, emails, vendor management, databases, public relations, pitches/proposals, marketing research, business development skills training, presentations, collateral, social media, internal communications, and marketing operations, among others. This role is intended to take on a few of these core areas of marketing activity, and exercise ownership and accountability over them. This means ensuring that our approach and execution are in alignment with the firm and department strategic objectives. It is also expected that ownership involves making sure we are bringing the right approach, tools, resources, thought process, prioritization, etc. to tasks at all times.

Our marketing strategy reflects the firm’s level of services, focusing highly on quality relationships with clients, referral sources, centers of influence, and internal relationships with our partners and managers. Consequently, experience working with diverse personality types and work styles is mission critical.

The marketing department also plays a part in supporting individual partners on their individual BD activities. We work with a number of vendors, contractors, and other third parties, so, knowing how to navigate different people and complex organizations is essential.

Finally, the ideal candidate will possess a keen eye for detail and design/layout, an innate sense of client-centric communications and the client journey, an abiding desire to learn more, amazing time management and project management skills, and the drive to proactively take their skills to the next level.

We’re looking for someone who has a passion for marketing, communications and branding, and who is tuned into the ever-changing trends and best practices in this discipline. We want to work with someone who employs a great balance between being an independent self-starter and being a collaborative, communicative teammate.

Like every other position on the marketing team, this position will need to be open to occasional before-/after-hours work to cover things like tradeshow tables or, seminar setup/breakdown.

This is the kind of position that has the tendency to grow, so if you thrive on learning new things and expanding your domain over time, this is an excellent opportunity for you.
