We're Hiring

Brand Marketing Manager

- SAN FRANCISCO, CA -
OVERVIEW:

Marine Layer is looking for a Brand Marketing Manager to join our brand team, and focus on getting the word (creating it, too) about Marine Layer out to the masses. This role is part creative, part project management, and we’re looking for someone who enjoys balancing the two.

On the creative side, you’ll partner with the Brand Director to create strong messaging around our already strong visuals, and bring our brand campaigns to life. You will be the keeper of brand-voice continuity across all channels, directly manage our Copywriting and Communications Associate, and ensure that ML’s Seven Day Weekend comes through everything we do.

But wouldn’t that require some project management? Yes! You’ll work with crossfuntional leaders to define key stories for the annual calendar, and create a working plan for how to get it done. You’ll ensure timelines and deliverables are communicated to the right teams, rally the troops, and own execution from start to finish.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Lead messaging and brand voice for all creative content
  • Ensure messaging continuity across all channels
  • Manage annual messaging calendar, timelines and deliverables
  • Collaborate with Brand Director and agencies to ideate campaigns
  • Lead project management and execution of campaigns
  • Manage relationships with agencies to ensure messaging and content is on brand
QUALIFICATIONS:
  • An Authentic Brand Advocate.
    You should know Marine Layer, believe in what we are doing, and be able to represent us in an authentic way in-person and in writing. There’s no substitute experience-wise for having this genuine connection.
  • A Great Storyteller and Clear Communicator.
    This is a big one. The narrative behind our brand is key to our success, and must be told in a creative, yet curated way to attract and keep our discerning customers.
  • Strategic & Creative.
    You’ll need to be an inventive thinker who can balance creative goals with bottom-line business needs.
  • Results Oriented and a Hustler.
    While we understand that attribution and measurement is tricky business in the marketing world, we do expect your work to drive meaningful growth in our business. The ability to track and demonstrate real success is paramount.
  • Comfortable with Ambiguity.
    We are a growing and constantly evolving organization. You will not only be responsible for a share of that evolution, but you should also be comfortable having to figure things out on your own, and being able to problem-solve creatively, often with limited resources.

Fine Print: we ask that you have the following qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Marketing or equivalent years of experience
  • 3-5 years of experience in marketing consumer brands (agency or in-house work)
  • Proven track record of successful copywriting and campaign execution
  • Project or account management experience a plus

Store Managers + Store Supervisors

- BAY AREA | LA AREA | NEW YORK | CHICAGO | SEATTLE | PORTLAND | SCOTTSDALE | NASHVILLE | AUSTIN | ATLANTA | CAMBRIDGE | CHARLOTTE | DC | PHILLY -
JOB DESCRIPTION:

We're looking for someone pretty special to help us slang a few tees and get the word out about Marine Layer at our new stores.  This is not a typical retail position because we are not a typical company. While selling shirts and maintaining the store are both very important, we primarily want someone who is personable, self-motivated and 110% committed to the success of their store and the brand as a whole.

As you can imagine, opening a store in a new market is an exciting challenge for any Store Manager and Store Supervisor. We need someone who can represent our lifestyle and company culture from hundreds of miles away. While we will (of course) be involved in branding, merchandising, events and training, it is very important for you to be an independent self starter.

In addition to finding someone who can kick ass and lead from afar, we are looking for a Store Manager + Store Supervisor who has experience in the following areas:

  1. Customer Experience — We want people to walk out of our stores excited about our brand. You should be (pretty) funny, (very) charismatic and be one hell of a host(ess) of the party.
  2. People Development — We pride ourselves in hiring green and developing our people. Personal success stories with people development and employee retention are a must.
  3. Leadership — We want someone who is passionate about keeping a team happy, engaged and challenged. There's a difference between managing a team and leading a team.
  4. Merchandising — Our product needs to look good and sell well in our stores. It's important for you to have a keen eye for merchandising and visual standards.
  5. Operations — It would be nice if operational tasks don't send you into a frenzy of panic.
QUALIFICATIONS:

Desire to work in a start‐up (ish) environment: A lot of people say they want to work at a start-up; not as many people really know what that means. Here it means we all work very hard, we believe deeply in the future of this company, and we all do a lotta bit of everything.

Success in a Retail Management Role: The size of your previous company and the product category you've worked in are not important to us. If you're a good manager with leadership skills and a positive attitude, you can succeed here.

Cultural Fit: This is a close-knit group that gets along extremely well. We all work hard, but manage to have a lot of fun along the way. We're all working towards the same goal of making Marine Layer something special and if you are on board for that (and don't have a stick up your butt) you'll fit in really well.
