About the role

Bulletin empowers entrepreneurs to build the business of their dreams. Bulletin’s wholesale marketplace connects independent retailers with the best brands on the planet, and powers local retail in both the U.S. and Canada.

While it's never been easier to start a consumer brand, thanks to platforms like Etsy and Shopify, breaking into wholesale is still a cumbersome and expensive process for brands, especially with trade shows being closed throughout the pandemic. Our platform makes it easy and affordable for these brands to expand into wholesale and start selling their wares with online or brick-and-mortar retailers around the United States and Canada. Bulletin primarily works with independent retailers like boutiques, spas, wellness centers, bookstores, cafes, small grocers and more. These retailers can seamlessly transact with over 1,300 brands and shop our marketplace with Net-60 terms, which helps them with cash flow and budgeting. Meanwhile, Bulletin pays brands upon inventory shipment, which means they can focus on producing and perfecting their inventory, rather than chasing down unpaid invoices from retailer partners. Our financial terms are a win-win for both parties and have helped us hit 30% month over month growth since Q1 of 2020.

Bulletin is looking for an energetic, hungry, dedicated Digital Marketing Associate to support our Marketing and Social team. In this role, you will help promote, market and elevate the thousands of brands in our community, use Instagram, email marketing and newsletter communications to share Bulletin’s value props and success stories, and strategize creative, thoughtful marketing campaigns and tactics that grow our community and generate more sales for our current brand partners.

Bulletin’s focus on quality over quantity, our community resources, our investment in thoughtful merchandising and site curation, and our fair commission structure is what sets us apart. In this role, you’ll tell Bulletin’s story, and success stories from brands on our marketplace, to further cement this positioning and grow the business. You will report directly to our Director of Marketing and Merchandising, and work collaboratively with our Director of Growth as well as our Co-founder/COO.

This role offers a unique opportunity to reinvigorate the company’s marketing strategy, think strategically about our content and messaging, and build foundational marketing and cross-functional skills that will help power the rest of your career. The ideal candidate has a proven track record in building and running a robust marketing strategy across multiple channels, experience working collaboratively on a high-performance, revenue-driven marketing team, and a hunger to consistently deliver compelling, thoughtful, effective content across email and social. Candidate must have the energy and grit necessary to succeed at a fast-paced, high-growth, early-stage company.

  • Working closely with our Director of Merchandising and Marketing, Head of Brand Growth and Head of Retailer Growth to ideate, launch and measure Instagram content and campaigns that drive more brand and retailer sign-ups, and generate more revenue for our brand community.
