Marketing Manager

OPEN POSITION: MARKETING MANAGER

WHO WE ARE

Only 1% of VC-funded startups have a black or Latino founder, and we think this is unacceptable. All Star Code’s mission is to attack this statistic head-on, empowering young men with the skills, networks, and mindsets they need to create new futures through technology. We do this through our flagship program, a six-week Summer Intensive and ongoing alumni services for our graduates.

Unlike most coding programs, All Star Code doesn’t just focus on Computer Science and technology; we also introduce soft skills and expose them to the tech startup culture by integrating our programs into tech spaces and successful companies with inspiring guest speakers and, most importantly, fun. All Stars finish the Summer Intensive as coders, makers, and entrepreneurs. 


THE OPPORTUNITY

All Star Code is the leading coding & entrepreneurship development program for black & Latino boys, and we are seeking an experienced marketer to lead our brand and communication efforts. The new Marketing Manager will be the first in the role and will have the opportunity to shape the role and future team.

  • Serve as Brand Manager; own the All Star Code message and brand in all its forms

  • Generate external communication, including a monthly newsletter, blog, and social media presence
  • Discover, curate, and share compelling stories from All Star Code’s students and supporters
  • Lead one or more part-time Marketing Associates in content creation and social media management
  • Own the ASC website; manage or work with vendors for design and maintenance

WHO YOU ARE

  • Branding specialist and/or marketing strategist who lives and breathes brand and message
  • Strong communicator with a broad range of writing skills, from pithy copy to compelling pitches to traditional marketing content
  • Efficient project manager who leads projects from idea to product delivery – on-time and on-budget
  • Relationship builder who can act as a partner to a very diverse set of stakeholders and vendors
  • Justice-minded, particularly when it comes to the racial gap in the tech industry
  • Technically proficient in Adobe software and other basic marketing tools and platforms

WHAT TO EXPECT AT ALL STAR CODE

Joining our squad means committing to live our mission and our values, which ultimately means learning. We ask our students to learn new and difficult skills in computer science and we ask them to step outside their comfort zone on a daily basis. We pledge to apply this learning through coding education, books & articles, professional development, workshops & conferences – however learning applies to you!

We are a transparent organization with open calendars, clearly defined salary bands, and a collaborative approach. So, if you make a mistake, fail to meet a target, or can’t quite solve a problem, we share that failure as a team. Not only do we share it, but we also celebrate failure because it is a sign that you are really challenging yourself!

We are driven; we love the thrill of a clear goal and working hard to get there, and we balance that with a commitment to wellness for each of us, because we know that a sound mind and sound body are crucial components of a sound team.

We tell our story. We bring our full selves to work and support our team members’ “side hustles”, their pets, and their family members. We get to know each other as people and make all decisions from a place of empathy. Perhaps most importantly, each of us carries a strong sense of justice. We consider our work to be necessary and important to create a more equal world, and that is the foundation of why we do what we do. 

You can look forward to:

  • Being one of the first 15 employees of All Star Code
  • Weekly team meetings
  • Monthly happy hours
  • Monthly team lunches
  • Individual professional development funds
  • Being part of a small, dynamic, and growing team in its first expansion year
  • Getting to know a group of nearly 140 All Star Code alumni who have gone on to build their own startups, attend top 50 universities, and earned more than $500K in scholarships and financial aid.
  • Raising awareness about the under-representation of black and latino boys in technology via public speaking engagements and press.
  • Opportunities to attend exciting events in NYC and beyond – past events include Panorama Music Festival, the US Open, White House events, and much more!
