For non-profits and businesses alike Dillon’s unique skills and innovative creativity will continue to provide value, success, and WINs as we grow 4degrees.

Senior Online Marketing Manager

4degrees is a small agency with purpose. We expect all employees to develop new skills and support continuing education. We seek clients and employees who share our commitment to quantifiable experimentation, fast iteration, and innovation.

We are looking for a creative and passionate digital marketer with experience running successful digital campaigns. You should have experience and ability to run large scale digital campaigns across all verticals. You will be responsible to plan, create, execute, optimize, and evaluate your campaigns. Your portfolio should include selected works in social media, advertising (banner, video, or social), email (with an emphasis on successful fundraising campaigns), and experience crafting visual creative such as graphics or videos. Candidates should have experience managing marketing campaigns with budgets of at least $100,000 per quarter or more.

While political experience is not necessary, we are looking for like-minded progressives to join our small team here in Denver. We work mostly with Democrats and environmental non-profits and you should be passionate about similar issues and politics.

We're looking for a self-motivated candidate who can take the lead on an account in your first week. As a senior manager, you will be communicating directly with clients to define success and deliver winning campaigns across all digital mediums.

Email Marketer & Copywriter

4degrees is a small agency with purpose. We expect all employees to develop new skills and support continuing education. We seek clients and employees who share our commitment to quantifiable experimentation, fast iteration, and innovation.

We are looking for someone that has email marketing and copywriting experience.

While political experience is not necessary, we are looking for like-minded progressives to join our small team here in Denver. We work mostly with Democrats and environmental non-profits and you should be passionate about issues and politics.

We're looking for self-motivated candidates who can take ownership of email marketing for clients in your first week.

You will be responsible for writing persuasive emails and fundraising emails. You will load copy into error-free html email templates, setup targeting and segmenting client email subscribers, and send blast emails. You will be accountable to hit fundraising targets.

We think political email has become stale, and we especially do not like gimmicky spam. Your copy should fit the personality and voice of the client. You will be responsible for multiple clients. You should have a pulse on current events and strive to be proactive not reactive. This position requires odd hours and flexibility.

This position does not have set office hours, so long as you always have internet and are in communication and get your work done with skill. But you will be accountable to produce the required work for your clients. Oftentimes this means turning around copy in a short few hours, or late at night as breaking news occurs. We work with a lot of political clients that have a predictable cycle which directly correlates to your volume of work. This means that as we move closer to election day, the volume and hours will increase dramatically. Our clients campaign 7 days a week, and this means you will be responsible to complete work on weekends.

While you will always be on duty for clients, you are free to travel and work from home and the average hours worked per week will oftentimes be less than a more traditional 9 to 5. We've found that employees who are organized, skilled, and proactive work far fewer hours than less organized employees.
