Job Descriptions


 

Marketing Manager

Omega Optical has an immediate opening for a marketing manager with digital experience. In this role, you'll be developing leads and customers through a mix of content marketing, email marketing, advertising, and trade shows. Experience or aptitude with technical products is a plus!

We're looking for someone with strong writing and communication skills to take our marketing outreach to the next level. You'll have experience generating inquiries and customer engagement through website product/capability pages, search marketing, email marketing, and social media. You should know how to build a strongly engaged customer mailing list, and manage a content calendar for consistent and valued communication throughout the year. You'll be tracking metrics and KPIs, and using that data to make strategic decisions on resource investment. You should have experience using CRM software (Salesforce preferred) to track costs and return on marketing investment.

Omega participates in a number of trade shows throughout the year, so experience in managing event marketing and logistics plus a willingness to travel a few times a year would be helpful. You should feel comfortable talking to customers about our latest products and manufacturing capabilities, and coaching the sales team to effectively market to their customers and prospects. We mix in some traditional advertising and print collateral, so experience with graphic design and printing would be a bonus.

We have a network of distributors in 21 countries around the world, so you'll provide marketing materials to our distributors, and keep them up-to-date on the latest advances at Omega. You'll also research and monitor industry and competitive trends, and contribute to our product development process.

At Omega, marketing is everyone's responsibility, from engineers presenting research papers at conferences to the sales team's prospecting and outreach. It's a busy environment, so you'll need to be good at managing multiple projects and priorities - you're detail oriented, but don't lose sight of the big picture. You'll budget, prioritize, plan, and execute, while still finding time for strategic planning.

Desired Skills:

  • Strong writing skills (please share a few samples!)
  • Digital marketing experience
  • Email marketing experience (Constant Contact a plus)
  • Wizard with Microsoft Excel
  • CRM experience (Salesforce a plus)

Bonus Points:

  • Social media marketing
  • Search engine marketing
  • Blogging experience

It's a busy environment, so you'll need to be good at managing multiple projects and priorities - you're detail oriented, but don't lose sight of the big picture.

We're running on an open-source software stack, so your experience in managing, customizing, and applying security patches to LAMP-stack software is important. You should be fluent in web languages to customize or create web applications, and use web standards and best practices to optimize performance. You recognize the importance of QC testing and documentation, and carve out time to make it happen.

We have thousands of products to list online, so experience dealing with large product catalogs and extensive attribute sets would be helpful. You'll have a head for data and databases, and understand how to make systems mesh with each other. You'll play a key role in our digital marketing, so you'll need to know how to make a page compelling to both Google search bots and our prospective customers.
