Marketing TeamAccount Manager
Sailthru, New York
Great with people? Sailthru is seeking an Account Manager to join its NYC team. In this role, you'll partner with clients to support their marketing campaigns, communicate with clients about technical best practices, and use your problem-solving skills to provide consultative solutions.
I'm a believer in working for a company you truly love. And if this was my 8th grade dance, Sailthru is the company I'd be trying to slow dance with when K-Ci and JoJo starts playing. It has an amazing culture of smart, talented, and unique people who seem to all really love what they do. And I'd get to talk about emailing all day long, which only bothers most people here at The Muse.
—Elliott Bell, Director of Marketing
Email Marketing Director
Sephora, San Francisco
Sephora is looking for an Email Marketing Director to lead and advance its email marketing program. In this position, you'll define the program's vision, content strategy, and creative messaging, monitor and analyze email performance trends, and supervise daily email operations.
The Email Marketing Director position at Sephora sounds awesome to me because it's a fun, creative position working with seriously great beauty products. Plus, it'd let me spend my days with my undying love: HTML.
—Brooke Torres, Social Media and Community Manager
Director of Sales—EF Tours
Education First, Boston
EF is looking for a smart and savvy Director of Sales to help run its EF international tours. In this role, you’ll be responsible for expanding your region and motivating a team of tour consultants on a daily basis.
I have a passion for travel and would relish the challenge of launching a new region and building relationships with people worldwide.
—Ekaterina Steube, Sales Associate
User Experience Designer
DOOR3, New York
DOOR3 is looking for an experienced UX Designer to work closely with the creative team to generate crisp, innovative, and elegant design solutions for its clients. In this role, you'll be responsible for developing wireframes and screen-flow diagrams and lead rapid iterations on a variety of ideas.
While I love my humanities major and creative brain, I do wish I had a few more cool, tangible skills, like the ability to design a badass tech product. In an alternate universe, I'd love to put my creative skills to use as a user experience designer. Add the fact that DOOR3 is in NYC (my favorite city!) and works with a wide variety of clients (never boring!), and I think we have a winner.
—Katherine Maughan, Sales Associate
Voxy, New York
Voxy is seeking an online marketing superstar to become its Marketing Director. In this position, you will provide leadership for the revenue function of the company by developing its customer acquisition strategy, managing a team of marketers, and driving customer engagement and loyalty.
I'd love this job because I love studying languages, and in this role I'd get to help spread awareness of Voxy's online education platform to places like Brazil and Latin America.
—Yuliya Mykhaylovska, Sales Associate
Counsyl, San Francisco
Do you have strong fundamentals in data structures and algorithms? Counsyl is looking for a pragmatist who knows when to use machine learning, and when to use a simple regex. You should have a BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science (or equivalent) and significant independent programming experience.
I think Counsyl provides an extraordinarily valuable service and is pushing the limits of how technically sophisticated small startups can get. Also, they occasionally call this position 'Genomics Hacker,' which must be the coolest job title ever.
—Yusuf Simonson, VP of Engineering
Pinterest, San Francisco
This position would probably be a lot of fun. They've only just begun to scratch the surface of what design and technology can do for gathering the internet, individually and collectively. It would be awesome to be a part of a team that uses the latest technologies to create beautiful and creative solutions for a problem that will likely affect how everyone uses the internet.
—Ana Enders, Senior Front-End Engineer
Product Development Manager
TED, New York
TED is looking for a deeply collaborative Product Development Manager. In this role, you'll oversee a team working with TED's internal properties to collect and define priorities, orchestrate a development schedule, and see through all of the tactical aspects of product delivery.
Originating and delivering features with a creative and talented team for a product that I love and believe in deeply sounds like the perfect fit! I'm passionate about TED's content—and working on solutions that require innovative and practical decisions promises a unique experience in impacting and inspiring a global audience every day.
—Meha Agrawal, Back-End Engineer
Senior Art Director
TripAdvisor is looking for an expert creative mind to ensure consistent visual brand experience and messaging across all its touch points. You'll work closely with copywriters, UX, marketing, product, engineers, and business strategists to promote the brand globally.
I work with words much more than visuals, but I secretly wish I had the background and skills to spend more time designing pretty things. In an alternate version of my life, I could totally see myself doing this job. Plus, TripAdvisor offers all employees travel reimbursement and discount programs, which would save me a lot of moolah on my international vacays.
—Adrian Granzella Larssen, Editor in Chief
Tasting Table, New York
Tasting Table is looking for a writer and editor with a passion for food and drink culture to join its New York City office. In this position, you'll assist the editorial team in writing and editing stories for Tasting Table's national and New York editions as well as for the Tasting Table website.
When I'm not at work writing and editing, you can pretty much always find me in the kitchen or at that-restaurant-I've-been-meaning-to-try—so this job would be the perfect way to bring those two things together. Plus, I'm dying to get my hands on Tasting Table's cookbook library!
—Erin Greenawald, Editor
Operations and Client Service Team
Director—Customer Experience and Support
Handybook, New York
Handybook is on a mission to change the way the world buys services and needs a customer experience expert to help define its success. In this role, you'll manage over 20-30 people, assign and direct work, appraise performance, and develop a challenging but fun environment.
I'm a big believer in customer service and how crucial it is for ongoing success at a company. Plus, Handybook's office is in an amazing location and its team has a lot of fun working together. It's a win-win!
—Niki Lowry, Director of Company Relations and Partnerships
Interns and Apprentices
Austin Film Festival, Austin
AFF is looking for outstanding interns and apprentices to help with the festival in all departments. In this role, you can either get credit for school or learn valuable trade experience all while working in the dynamic film industry.
AFF is a really great organization that supports writer-focused films, and I think it would be so cool to meet industry changers and see the creative process first hand.
