  • Serve as an integral member of the marketing team managing multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Train new users on the CMS and acting as support for web assets.

  • Exhibit the ability to learn new technologies on the fly and teach them to others as necessary.  Demonstrate flexibility when streaming events happen outside usual hours of operation.
  • Be familiar with Adobe Creative Suite, Canva, and Microsoft Office.  You will use them to create assets every day.
