Digital Marketing Careers in the NY Capital District

Why be Outspoken?

Outspoken Media is a leader in our industry, recognized for an honest approach to high-quality work. Since the Outspoken Media brand is bigger than any one individual, we are in the fortunate position to choose stellar clients. This naturally breeds passion and accountability within the team. Outspoken Media isn’t just a job, it’s a career that is uniquely positioned to grow successful marketers and managers through rigorous, hands-on training.

Currently, we’re a small team with big clients and more contacting us everyday. This means we need to grow the team, but we aren’t just looking for anyone. We need driven, passionate minds who can effectively manage their day without losing sight of the results we need to achieve for clients and ourselves.

There are several key traits that our team members, regardless of role, embody that help them succeed at Outspoken Media:

Accountability – We’re still in “startup” mode, which means we’re a pretty tight group. We put in long hours at the office and sometimes have to do business trips out of town. Being able to balance that culture is a must.

Agility – Small, repetitious tasks and high-level, strategic planning are part and parcel of the day-to-day work. You must be willing to adapt to the needs of the work, the environment we’re in, and our clients.

Outspokenness – It should go without saying, but as a small business we thrive on open, honest communication and feedback from our team. You need to be able to take ownership for your work and let us know if you need more training, better tools, more direction, etc. We’ll do our best to listen to and meet those needs.

Detail-Oriented – Work hard with an eye for detail. Work ethic is huge, but even more important is making sure that work is done right after you’ve been effectively trained to do it. We are a team that tries to put out our best work each day!

Analytical and Creative Thinking – Search engine optimization is both a science and an art. Being able to switch from a Google Analytics report to brainstorming link development techniques is essential.

Curiosity – Keeping up with the industry means having a constant thirst for knowledge. Everyone on our team brings something new to the table. We like that and we want to embrace your strengths and make sure you continue learning. The company is only as good as the team behind it and this industry evolves quickly. Continually learning is a must.

Do you have what it takes to be outspoken?

If you do, the right candidate will work in a fast-paced, fun environment. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in search engine optimization (SEO) and social media, and learn from some of the industry’s best. Getting in on the ground level also means your voice gets heard. Is eating organic and recycling important to you? How about giving back to the community through volunteer work? Maybe your passion is for learning a new skill set or getting certified with a certain tool. Whatever matters most to you, we listen and support it. We want you to stay focused on your individual purpose without losing it in the day-to-day of the company’s. The only reason this company exists in the first place is to better ourselves and the communities we support.

We will listen to you. That’s a promise. In return we want the best and brightest SEOs, social media strategists, digital marketers, and writers the Capital District has to offer.
