Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is in hot pursuit of a calm, methodical and collected Off-centered Director of Marketing with multi-year, hands-on experience to join our awesome team. The successful candidate will shepherd our wickedly talented team offering guidance, direction and support to the worlds of Merchandise/E-Commerce, Tourism/Eventing, Art/Graphic Design/Publication and Storytelling/Social Media. The Director of Marketing will organize the marketing agenda from a big picture, well-communicated framework ensuring that grand plans get appropriately and realistically sized and prioritized while rapport is built and support is gained cross-departmentally. You’ll be dynamic, people-focused and really, REALLY good at directing many talented co-workers toward achieving deliverables on-time and on-budget. You should be plugged into the world of possibilities presented by effective marketing strategies in any form (but preferably non-traditional… there won’t be a Super Bowl ad buy in our future) in order to smartly run a grassroots, bootstrap marketing department. Your group must stay accommodating, nimble and alert to provide support for a variety of customers, whether internal or external, including our direct, indirect and end-consumer audiences. You’ll help identify, analyze and recommend marketing opportunities and messages, handle various vendor negotiations, and stay abreast of the latest trends and developments in new, established or emerging media. You will be critical to our ongoing success as you implement the infrastructure and processes that enable the magic to systematically happen. And while your role will not be primarily focused on filling the pipeline with creativity or direction for the brand, you will have an important voice in all high level marketing and leadership decision-making at Dogfish. We bristle at the notion of "executive" positions, but that's what this one would be considered at companies that enjoy such terms. And this dear friends only brings us to like Wednesday…we have a lot going on!
The qualified candidate should have a bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Biz or other relevant discipline. You must have a minimum 8 years experience successfully shepherding a marketing department: people, process and projects. A different configuration of education and experience that gets the job done may also be considered. Your planning, organizing and analyzing skills need to be tested and super sharp. Dogfish has enjoyed success through the collective efforts of all our people; mark-makers, attention-seekers and glory-hounds need not apply. You must have the full gamut of exceptional communication skills, including written, spoken, inter-personal and rapport-building. Really, really strong computing and digital media know-how is essential. The very best candidates will have the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience side of things while also bringing a really strong sense of who we are and aren’t, what we’re about, how you’d plug in and why we were made for each other.
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery offers competitive compensation including bonus potential, 401K company match, a fabulous health care package to include health/dental and FREE beer!
