Senior Director of Marketing

AVID Center - San Diego, California - Full time

AVID has a great story to tell, and we are searching for a dynamic market and brand champion to ensure that even more educators, partners, and funders know our impact. We have grown from one teacher in one classroom to over 6,500 schools and 70,000 educators. The schools that have invited us to work with them and who rely on us are phenomenal ambassadors. We are combatting inequitable educational practices, closing the achievement gap, and creating limitless opportunities for 2 million students a year. We not only believe all students can succeed but have successfully shown that we can close the achievement gap. As we approach our 40th anniversary, we are on a mission—and feel a moral urgency—to double or even triple the number of students we positively impact a year.

What we are looking for:

  • A successful, innovative, and passionate marketer, who thinks like a chief marketing officer
  • A strategic and creative content builder and business engineer, who is equally at home analyzing data, crafting messaging, developing strategy, and forging partnerships
  • A leader, who can coach, drive, and inspire

What you will enjoy:

AVID is a fast-growing and successful national nonprofit with proven results. We are on a mission to close the achievement gap for historically underserved students. Our social purpose drives us, not our profits. We have a talented and passionate team. We are committed to employee development. Organizational excellence is one of our key goals, and we have made significant investments in technology and training to ensure our future success and longevity.

What you will do:

You will lead and develop a high-octane Marketing team. Like any chief marketing officer, you will be our brand steward, crafting and tailoring marketing strategies to expand and deepen AVID’s impact. You will ensure that the organization’s messages reflect the tremendous impact we have and the passion educators have for AVID. You will gather intelligence, understand the needs of the educators we work with, and stay abreast of the best marketing strategies and state-of-the-art technology. You will forge partnerships that will give us more distribution networks. As a member of the Senior Leadership team, you will work from the San Diego headquarters to provide marketing, engagement, communications, and development leadership direction.
