At AVO, we hire the outliers; the right and left brain thinkers; the exceptional creators who challenge basic assumptions, have an insatiable appetite for learning, and a passion for empowering others through knowledge.
With this position, you’ll be part of a tightly knit, nimble team that collaborates regularly, but also trusts each member to independently deliver the high quality work for which we are known. While team members have their own core duties, no one is above a given role, and we are always willing to take on any task that contributes to the success of our mission.
Excelling in our field requires objectivity and a diversity of perspectives, so we encourage our team members to explore new knowledge. It is not unusual to step into our office, a light-filled space in a historic Belltown building, and find people reading books or watching lectures on any number of topics.
Our name, AVO, comes from the Latin “amor vincit omnia,” meaning love conquers all. This philosophy drives our vision: to leverage our collective intelligence to create a long-lasting positive impact on the world, or as we say, “do good, better.” In the end, our story is not about our work but rather how we empower others to change the world.
We are looking for an experienced Marketing Strategist who will bring a blend of analytical thinking and creativity to their work, which may include developing strategic marketing plans, messaging frameworks, sales enablement strategies, user experience strategies, go-to-market plans, and digital transformation strategies. Your recommendations will leverage a deep understanding of the factors that drive human behavior, motivations, and decision making. You will research and propose strategies to better target, message, and engage audiences; you will be integral to coordinating and developing new business opportunities; and as an AVO Marketing Strategist, you will have the opportunity to produce thought leadership materials for industry presentations, panel discussions, speeches, and publications.
-4-6 years of consulting or marketing industry experience
-Deep knowledge of marketing principles, human behavior principles (psychology/sociology), business strategy, and current trends in marketing and economics
-Strong writing skills with the ability to create compelling copy and content
-Knowledge of audience measurement and testing strategies (online and offline)
-Strong familiarity with common marketing tools and services
-Experience using data and analytics to tell a story
-Affinity for design and working knowledge of design tools like InDesign and Photoshop
-Proficient with technology and common business software (Office, MacOS, Box, etc.)
-Exceptional written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills; ability to adjust your style and tone for different audiences and business objectives
-Experience exercising discretion and confidentiality with sensitive company information
-B.S./M.S. in Marketing, Psychology, Business, Sociology, and/or related fields
-Passion for community service

Not sure if you are 100% qualified based on what you have read? Consider this: we are more interested in hiring smart, hardworking, thoughtful individuals who are motivated to learn than those who think they already have all of the answers. We want individuals who care about the world, who want to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and who will deliver exceptional work.
