Position Information
Job Responsibilities: 

As Campus Marketing Coordinator, you will be a driving force behind building CommonBond’s community of in-school borrowers. You will have a high degree of autonomy to execute our MBA campus program and will develop a strategy to reach undergraduates this year. Our MBA student loan is offered at 29 business schools and our undergraduate and graduate student loans are offered at 2,200 schools throughout the country; we’re looking for someone to connect with students on and off campus to drive awareness and consideration for CommonBond.

As part of a nimble team in a startup organization, you’ll work on many projects, including but not limited to:

  • Coordinate all aspects of our Campus & Event (in-person or virtual) marketing initiatives to drive new member acquisition. This will require ~50% of your time to be spent out of the office, traveling to campuses.
  • Be the point person for contact mapping to help us connect with the right people on campuses
  • Research & source additional opportunities – speaking events with clubs, conferences, sporting events, case competitions, and other innovative ideas you believe will drive awareness for CommonBond and differentiate the brand
  • Play a supporting role in managing day-to-day marketing initiatives, including Display, Social, Retargeting, SEM, SEO, direct mail, PR, email marketing, and more
  • Analyze marketing activities to determine effectiveness, creating ongoing reporting dashboards and continually recommending optimizations to our activations in order to achieve our goals.
Qualifications: 

You’re eager to work in a fast-paced startup environment and to drive significant impact on some of our most important company goals. The ideal candidate has:

  • 2+ years of marketing experience, preferably in an agency
  • A bachelor’s degree, ideally from an undergraduate business or marketing/communications program
  • Loves to present to audiences large and small - you’ll be the face/voice of CommonBond for many of our borrowers and potential borrowers
  • Can talk to anyone in any situation—networking happy hour, company dinner, MBA recruiting fair, etc. You will be the embodiment of our company and often the only person a customer ever meets face-to-face; the right person will relish this aspect of the role and enjoy being out there.
  • You love all things “startup”, you’re interested in business models, how companies work, etc.
  • “Finance” is not a scary word; you’ll be comfortable talking to people about interest rates, APR, and how CommonBond works.
  • Strong analytical skills. Proficiency in Excel and Google Analytics are a must; bonus if you are familiar with Looker.
  • A strong match for our culture: empathy for and connection with our customer while being focused, hardworking, and kind.
  • Experience crafting and executing effective content across social media platforms in service of a brand
  • Roll-up-your-sleeves mentality – we’re a small team and everyone gets their hands dirty to get stuff done.
  • Excellent project management skills. You are supremely organized and love keeping everything on track.
