This position will report to the VP of Marketing, and will work closely with other members of the Sales & Marketing team.


Job responsibilities


  • Maintain a posting schedule on social media with brand voice and direction in mind
  • Assist in the creation and execution of ThinkData Works social media strategy through the development of content and platform account management
  • Manage TDW’s software directory listings
  • Submit articles and applications to third party content hubs
  • Research trending topics and hashtags, coordinate art, research images, and edit them for social media, as required

Job requirements


  • You are currently enrolled in a Marketing or Business program (or a related field) studying at a university or college in your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year
  • Experience at a startup, a small company, or in a fast-paced environment is preferred

  • Legally eligible to work in Canada

What’s in it for you?


  • Competitive compensation. You will earn a salary commensurate with your experience.
  • Career development. We believe in informal mentorship and formal training. You will work closely with our VP of Marketing, and have the opportunity to participate in lunch-and-learn workshops.
  • The opportunity to make a mark. We are growing. And with that growth comes the need for people with insights to help us scale. You will have the opportunity to apply your insights, try different methods and introduce best practices, building out a framework for our Marketing Team.
  • An amazing team. Collaboration across teams is paramount to our success and our culture as we scale. At ThinkData Works, we prioritize mental and physical wellness. We believe in balance as we grow. We play Smash Bros, pool, and board games. We know how to have fun and enjoy spending some extra time together.

Need more reasons to join?


We may be technologically driven, but like any good Canadian we know the best ideas are thought of up north in a cottage. Before (and hopefully after) COVID-19, we’ve taken annual 3-day retreats for mission setting, aligning with our goals, product management and team building. We’re not saying this involves a beer keg, guitars and campfires. But we’re not saying it doesn’t.


We are managing our growth. We continue to promote and nurture the open, collaborative nature of who we are and how we work. And we don’t just support each other in the office. The number of musicians in-house is pretty overwhelming, from big band trumpeters to death metal guitarists. There’s always a co-worker with a gig coming up and we go out to cheer them on.


Some final notes before applying


ThinkData Works prides itself for its diversity and being an equal opportunity employer. We welcome and encourage applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.

We value all of our applicants, but due to the high volume of applications we receive, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

Candidates must be legally eligible to work in Canada.


COVID-19 update


We are conducting all interviews remotely at this time, however, we have fully embraced hybrid working. For us, hybrid work means our employees have the choice with their managers and teams to decide where they work, whether that’s from home or from our office.
