Marketing Assistant

Genius Games is looking for a Marketing Assistant with potential to move up in the company to become our Marketing and Sales Manager in the future. You don’t need to know much about Marketing, just a strong desire to learn as you go! This role is critical for Genius Games, and the input, contributions and decisions made by this person will be extremely important to the success of our company.

We’re looking for someone who is highly self-directed, organized, and analytic. Someone who is personable and who loves solving challenging puzzles, and is also not afraid to try new things, test things out and make progress by trial and error. Someone who thrives in an atmosphere where giving and receiving feedback is the norm. 

Most importantly, this person finds meaning and fulfillment in using their skills to personally and directly help drive the growth of a small company.

If you’re just looking for another job, this position isn’t for you. If you don’t love working your rear off as a critical part of a team, to grow something that really matters, and learn a bunch along the way, then this isn’t the position for you.
