Digital Marketing Specialist
Fractured Atlas is seeking a full‐time Digital Marketing Specialist. Fractured Atlas is a national nonprofit art service organization with a membership of over 75,000. Our mission is to make the journey from inspiration to living practice more accessible and equitable for artists and creatives. We are dedicated to helping individual artists and arts organizations at every level of the cultural ecosystem, in every creative medium by providing fundraising tools, educational resources, and personalized support.
We are looking to bring on a Digital Marketing Specialist to our team, to help us better communicate with our current members and donors as well as reach new audiences. This role will combine traditional nonprofit development and emerging digital marketing strategies to help our members and the organization grow. We’re looking for someone who understands that marketing can be more than a business strategy, and is excited about communications work that is rooted in and builds community.
The Digital Marketing Specialist is part of the External Relations team and will report to the Director, External Relations. We expect that this role will be approximately 60% CRM-based (email marketing, contact list management, metrics, etc.) and 40% social media.
The External Relations team is nimble and collaborative. We practice participatory decision making and we believe in being good at our jobs, while not being subsumed by them.
At Fractured Atlas, we work hard towards supporting our mission but we also understand that work is just one part of life and support team members having full and robust lives outside of work. Our organizational culture embraces people who:
- Are curious and excited by opportunities to better our services, our systems, and ourselves.
- Seek out challenging problems and are comfortable with high-risk, high-impact efforts.
- Are agile, creative problem solvers with a focus on concrete results.
- Invest their time in quality work and giving others their respect and support.
Additionally, at Fractured Atlas we work to adhere to anti-oppression and anti-racism principles in all areas of our internal and external work. This commitment is grounded in our belief that change is possible, and that our work and that of the artistic community as a whole will grow stronger as oppression is eliminated.
In our current phase of this journey towards being an Anti-Racist Anti-Oppressive organization, the whole staff is engaged in all staff ARAO Committee meetings and undergo training as part of their onboarding process. We recognize that we do not have all of the answers as we pursue this work. This work will continue to shift as the Fractured Atlas team changes. We ask that new team members join us as we continue to learn, practice, and grow in this work. Learn more about what it’s like to work at Fractured Atlas here.
