Job Description

Are you bored easily? Have trouble sitting still? Firespring has a high-energy position awaiting your resume. If you love making friends, coming up with creative strategies and using clever solutions to help nonprofits grow, you’re going to love getting out of bed each morning to come to work.

As account director, you are the key driver of client growth for Firespring’s nonprofit marketing and print services. You’ll work with clients to help them build brand awareness, generate leads, grow their donor base, launch new services and enhance donor and employee engagement. 

In this position, you’ll offer Firespring’s nonprofit clients and prospects subject matter expertise on:

  • Effective marketing strategies to move prospects at each stage of a donor lifecycle, from first gift to major/legacy gifts.
  • Direct mail appeals, including data segmentation and targeting, personalization and increasing response and retention rates.
  • Gathering and interpreting marketing analytics.
  • Maximizing event ROI.
  • Major gift cultivation and stewardship.
  • Digital and print newsletter strategies.
  • Booth/trade show displays, design, promotional/recognition items and collateral.

The ever-changing business landscape energizes you. You like to talk, but more importantly, you know when and how to listen. Establishing rapport with different personality types is second nature for you. You serve up information in a clear and concise way, and are readily adaptable in your own communication method. To top it all off, you bring a positive attitude and always have your team members’ backs.

This isn’t your first rodeo. You’re a veteran at finding smart solutions, and you know how to help your clients take a bold new step in the right direction.

Is this you? Awesome, let’s get this party started.
