We’re looking for a digital marketing assistant that is excited to be a modern-day renaissance-(wo)man. First Ascent Design is a full-service, digital marketing agency in Wilmington Delaware that is focused on email, search, and social as primary marketing channels. We believe that design is a multiplier of effort and have a high standard for design, and also that development and web assets are a critical piece of digital marketing. To execute campaigns, we manage strategy, content creation, design, and development. Your role as a digital marketing specialist is to manage, strategize and execute campaigns, by coordinating with the larger team, coordinating with clients, and doing production tasks yourself. As a small agency, we all wear many hats and work collaboratively on all projects. There are no pure managers here, everyone rolls up their sleeves and gets to work. We believe in training our employees and attitude, honesty and work ethic will mean more than having experience in all the below responsibilities and having all qualifications.
