  • Corporate & Community Conferences
  • Corporate Leadership Summits
  • Community Festivals (like UNDISCOVERED SF, our flagship event)

About the Role

The Marketing Coordinator will work closely with Founder & Chief Experience Officer (CEO) as well as our Marketing Events Manager (soon to be hired) to help amplify our message across multiple media platforms (Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Website). Someone with past strategy, sales, and marketing experience could grow into more opportunities, events, and hours.

We’re looking for someone with past experience doing Marketing ideation & execution, who has creative ideas to bring to the table, and who shares a similar conversational, approachable, Bay Area writing style that can represent Make it Mariko to our audiences.

This is a great opportunity for a budding Marketing professional who wants more hands-on experience creating large scale campaigns and working on strategic events and high impact projects in the Bay Area creative community. 

This year we are working on BIG projects, like purchasing our first Event Space (aka The Ranch)! This role will be greatly involved with the The Ranch project possibly taking on more accounts to manage to help us build our project audiences. We’re looking for someone who is down for learning new things, isn’t afraid of the unknown, and is ready to flex their creative skills.

Women of Color are highly encouraged to apply.
