HELLO! NICE TO MEET YOU
We’re a community-driven PR and Digital Marketing agency for changemakers, powered by social justice. We’re a small, mighty, diverse and fully remote team that believes we can use our communications expertise to make a difference in our communities.
COMPENSATION & CULTURE
- Salary for all director level positions is $95K.
- We offer these outrageously awesome benefits, a four-day work week and a paid winter break between Dec 25 and New Years.
A LITTLE ABOUT US
- Mixte is committed to building teams where people of all identities and backgrounds are welcome, included and respected (see our employee survey results). We encourage candidates to apply who are from Native American and Indigenous communities, communities of color and LGBTQIA+ communities, as well as folks who are from, or who have experience working, in social justice communities.
- Our core values drive everything we do – from the clients we work with to the way we operate as a team. We don’t advertise on Meta platforms, as it actively goes against our values, and we run our paid job training program for underrepresented communities
- We support every employee through professional development courses mapped to a customized 23-step proprietary program at Mixte.
A LITTLE ABOUT YOU
- You are dedicated to social justice – both in your local community and broader – and you get fired up reading the news.
- You understand the power of strategic, long-term communications to build trusting audiences and drive them to action, which leads to real change.
- You’re looking to put your significant experience to work in creating lasting change, rather than using it to climb a corporate ladder.
- You have a lot of experience leading teams, and you know how to inspire them to think big and trust them to deliver high-quality results.
- You’re inspired by the idea of being a part of a small and nimble team where everyone has the opportunity to collaborate and surface ideas without the bureaucracy of larger companies.
- You have high levels of emotional intelligence and love building long-term relationships.
- Your experience working for other employers – both the good and the bad – has allowed you to crystallize exactly what you’re looking for in your next career, and you won’t sacrifice that vision for any job.
- You’re excited by – and have tremendous experience in – a 100% remote working environment. You appreciate the perks of working from home and you know how to produce stellar results virtually.
