Would you like to be a part of an exciting startup of young workers where you can learn & grow with the company?

Do you enjoy working in a relaxed and fun atmosphere?

Do you have experience in eCommerce marketing?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you to get a dream job… And a perfect opportunity for us to get a great new addition to our remote team!

But, before we go on, let us tell you a little bit more about what we do here at Baloo Living.

At Baloo Living, we create products that naturally improve sleep & reduce stress. Our sustainably-produced products serve the body’s natural health and balance — and are tailored for the moments when the person you most want to spend time with is… yourself.

The brand’s flagship product is the Baloo Weighted Blanket, guaranteeing the best quality & breathable sleep.

It’s important to mention that Baloo Living is an eco-friendly company, working to support the environment & our communities. We use plastic-free packaging & our products are securely packed in reusable fabric dustbags, and we also support fair trade and sustainability throughout the fashion industries in the US and the UK!

We are a start-up of young workers, with a vibrant and energetic culture.

The team members work from different parts of the world, and we try to inject some levity and allow the team to get to know each other outside of work. We have watercooler chat prompts in Slack, and organize Friday team meetings where everyone shares the best personal and work wins for the week!

At Baloo Living, we practice what we preach. That’s why we have implemented a Day of Rest every quarter - when the entire team takes the day off together. By having a paid personal day off as a team, we support each other in decompressing and having a healthy work-life balance.

Now, let’s get back to you.

We are looking for a Marketing Assistant who will support the marketing team in all functions of the department. The ideal candidate is a team player with demonstrated leadership abilities, strong attention to detail, creativity, and the ability to see the big picture.

We want someone curious who’s always eager to learn more!

As the new Marketing Assistant, you will:

  • Engage with customers & content creators on social media
  • Respond to DM inquiries and direct them to appropriate team members
  • Respond to marketing-related email inquiries, or direct them to appropriate team members
  • Help us connect with new influencer partners by researching influencers, content creators, affiliates, and brands for collaborations

After that, you will meet with the Marketing Manager, review processes and the team’s quarterly goals, and then jump in with oversight from the Marketing Team. This role will report to the Marketing Project Manager but will work with the CEO and marketing consultants, agencies, & freelancers.

This is a full-time position, with the flexibility to set preferred hours. However, you need to be available to work eight hours within the range of 6 AM PST to 9 PM EST to overlap with the rest of the team.

This position is perfect for someone looking to learn more about the overall marketing & social media strategies and execute with close, supportive management that will allow you to learn and grow in the job.

You’ll have a chance to learn all aspects of digital marketing from a leading brand in the weighted blanket category, and support a product that truly helps people sleep better and feel better, in a meaningful and sometimes even life-changing way.
