Description

Position at Ezra

Job Role:   Marketing Project Manager 
Location:   
Toronto, Canada 


Who we are

Imagine what even the world’s finest organizations could achieve if all of their employees were coached to be their absolute best.

At Ezra, we’re on a mission to do just that. We believe through coaching, people get to know themselves. Their goals. Weaknesses. Hang-ups. And once they know all that, they can build on the good stuff and work on the rest.

This mindset applies not only to our clients, but is manifested in our own Ezra family. We believe we are changing people’s lives. We believe a happy team is a productive team. We want our people to care and be proud of what they do. We also practice what we preach – every member of our teams gets to experience the superpower that is coaching for themselves, amongst some other pretty incredible perks.

Ezra is the fastest growing global virtual coaching company, supporting some of the world’s leading companies. If all of this resonates, Ezra just might be the place for you.

 

The Role

We’re looking for a highly-organized Project Manager who has a passion for bringing creativity and operations together to drive a broad scope of strategic Marketing initiatives. This individual will work within the Marketing team in close partnership with Sales, Revenue Operations, and external suppliers. This individual thrives in a fast-changing and fast-paced environment, and is motivated by achieving goals that are aligned to business objectives, all while working within Ezra’s values.

 

The Team

The Marketing team is comprised of members who are experts in their craft – brand and communications, account-based marketing, creative design, and more. The team’s mission is to ensure Ezra has a bold, positive, and recognizable brand that highlights how truly unique Ezra is in the market. The team strives to build a global and relevant presence in our key markets around the world, and drive leads, all to bring the power of Ezra to as many participants as possible. The team works closely with Sales and Revenue Operations to achieve Ezra’s goals.

 

This role reports to the Art Director based in Toronto, Canada but will work across the Global team. At this time, the role has no direct reports but indirectly manages the internal creative agency.
