The IDEO Global Marketing team is looking for a coordinator to keep a large team connected and support leadership to ensure that global marketing initiatives are advanced. This person is a creative problem solver who is comfortable going from details to big picture, and who thrives on making others successful.
This person plays a key role on the global marketing leadership team by supporting the Chief Marketing Officer, and also serves as our “front door”—the person you can go to with any marketing-related needs. One part air traffic control, one part horizon-watcher, and one part wise confidante armed with just the right medicine. This person helps keep the team connected, organized, informed, focused, and inspired by the tools, systems, and behaviors that streamline our process and workload.
The person who would flourish in this role enjoys empowering others, exercises great judgment and discretion, and has a skill of connecting the dots across an organization. This person also serves as a kind of cruise director for the team, intuiting when it’s time for us to socialize, celebrate one another, or take a field trip.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
Our coordinators make the biggest impact through organization and flexibility. They extend the impact and influence of our leaders by preparing them for travel, meetings, and other commitments, and creatively tackle hurdles along the way. This role is the drumbeat of consistency and reliability that keeps the studio moving forward in a coordinated way. We count on them to bring clarity to chaos, whether problem-solving with internal stakeholders or ensuring external client needs are being met.
