Who says you can't teach an old bulldog new tricks?

Georgetown University is seeking a Director of Marketing who will hire and build a new team of marketers to support designated graduate schools' marketing efforts. We're looking for someone who is analytical and results-focused, with a deep knowledge of digital marketing lead generation tactics, website user-experience, content strategy, SEO and paid search, and email marketing/CRM systems; and who will also hire, train, and supervise marketing team members and take responsibility for their professional development.

Reporting to the Chief Marketing Officer, this new position will play a senior management role on the MarTech team where they will develop strong working relationships with internal partners and external agencies. The Director of Marketing will also plan, develop, implement, and evaluate lead generation, engagement strategies, and brand-building efforts for Georgetown's graduate programs.

And while a love of cats isn't a deal breaker, our bulldog mascot, Jack, might have something to say about that.
