Marketing and Sales Support Lead

Washington, District of Columbia, United States expand job description ↓

Description

We're looking for someone super-organized who loves making connections and celebrating relationships. The Marketing and Sales Support Lead is the the first person to interact with a new client and may be the most important role on our team. Your role would be to promote and support our work and help us connect with great clients.


In this role, you will:

  • Support our Co-Founder/Creative Director Alex, who is currently our main business development person.
  • Manage our sales pipeline and running sales meetings.
  • Respond to inbound leads and manage routine sales-related emails.
  • Prospect for new leads — research companies and identify individuals.
  • Manage our internal, owned social channels to generate new leads and increase visibility.
  • Plan and run events.
  • Assist in writing proposals and creating pitch decks.
  • Write newsletters and marketing content.


ABOUT THE COMPANY

Our small studio started in 2009 with a simple mission: to create beautiful work, tell stories that are worth telling, and make a difference. And we've succeeded! We work with some of the biggest organizations in the DC area and (for some reason) they keep coming back for more. Help us become better artists, and storytellers and animators by working with us.


We’ve always been about one thing: telling good stories. Whether for education, entertainment, or inspiration, stories are at the core of our humanity. Our name deliberately evokes this age-old obsession with stories by sounding like a fable, The Duke & the Duck, but without coming with the baggage of an already existing tale.


We believe that absolutely everyone and everything is worth celebrating, and people tell us that our enthusiasm is infectious. If you think you might be a good fit, we’re excited to meet you.


Requirements

More than a specific set of experiences or education, we want someone with the right mix of proven organizational judgement, talent, communication, and passion for the kind of work we do.


You may be perfect if:

  • You’re an excellent communicator, in writing and in person.
  • You like to help people, because that is ultimately what we do, and what sales is about.
  • You have a passion for video and storytelling.
  • You’re always the friend who organizes surprise parties.
  • You'd rather jump in and make a mistake than wait for directions from someone else.
  • The idea of unanswered emails makes you anxious


If you're still with us, you may be just the right kind of quirky person for our team. Go ahead and click "Apply" right now. We want to hear from you!


Benefits

The biggest benefit is our chance to do something wonderful together. To be a part of a team making art for a living, and hang out with people who feel the same way you do about telling kick-ass stories.


Our official benefits include:

  • Starting salary of $40,000 to $50,000 per year.
  • Health, dental, vision, and 401(k).
  • Opportunity to grow your network and meet awesome people.
  • Career growth options.
  • A sweet co-working space in the U Street neighborhood with unlimited coffee and occasional office dogs.
