Overview

At Stand Together we are working to accelerate the efforts of those that are tackling the greatest societal challenges of our time. Bringing about meaningful social change will require new and innovative ways of getting people to engage with things they care deeply about (e.g. Education, Poverty, Criminal Justice Reform, etc.).  To help us get there, we are looking for experienced brand strategists with a proven track record of launching brands, products, and large-scale supporting campaigns.   

 

We are looking for leaders that know how to translate a val-prop into compelling activations that break through.  You’ve taken a product concept through to a major multi-channel launch and managed it through multi-year milestones. Does this sound like you? If you get excited talking about the needles you moved, we should definitely talk.   

 

As a Director, Brand Strategy you will be working directly with our leadership team to interpret goals into actionable plans that drive meaningful results.  For us to engage millions we will need to work backwards from key audiences that will help us get there. You’ll bring deep experience in working with insights teams to identify research needs, interpret findings and translate those findings into product and marketing efforts 

                                                                                                                                          

The Stand Together culture is guided by the principles of integrity, humility, respect, knowledge, and transformation. We prioritize professional growth and lifelong learning, so we reward our employees for the value they create. This environment gives you the room to make a meaningful and lasting impact that will help millions of people and transform society.
