Content Marketing Associate

acorn30 is a growing marketing agency based in Peterborough, Ontario. We are looking for a Content Marketing Associate to join our team. This is an exciting role that applies the latest technology and marketing best practices to help our clients achieve their business growth goals. 

The Content Marketing Associate will be responsible for creating inbound marketing materials for acorn30 and our clients, as well as evaluating how those materials are performing as a part of a larger marketing strategy. This will be an interdisciplinary role involving content creation, content and social media analytics, user experience management, and more.

Location: acorn30 is a remote-first company and is accepting applications from across Canada.

Duration: This is a six-month contract position with the possibility of extension. 

acorn30 was founded in 2016 and in 2018 became a HubSpot Solutions Partner. We develop inbound marketing strategies and campaigns for B2B Industrial companies across Canada. 

While this is a junior position, make no mistake— you will be given client projects and live campaigns to work on. If you’re the one we’re looking for, you have experience but more importantly, you’re a nerd who approaches your job as a problem solver.

You won’t know how to do all the work you’re given, but you love nothing more than digging in and finding the answer. You may just be starting your career or you have a completely different job in mind for your future; either way you’re looking for a challenging and rewarding experience. 

You’re also the kind of person who takes advantage of opportunities to learn and grow. We are offering access to training and certifications as well as mentoring opportunities within and beyond our company.
