Alpine Parrot is hiring a Social Media and Marketing Coordinator! If you’re looking to be a part of a small but impactful team, learn a little bit of everything, and help grow a blossoming company that's working to make a difference in the outdoors, this might be the role you’re looking for. 

About Alpine Parrot:

Founded in 2019, Alpine Parrot’s mission is to create outdoor apparel that celebrates and encourages underrepresented people in the outdoors, specifically people of size and people of color. We are a data-driven company that loves to have fun and make friends. Our first product, the Ponderosa Pants, are technical hiking pants made for women’s sizes 14-24, soon up to 30. 

About the role:

The Social Media and Marketing Coordinator will report directly to the Director of Marketing, working to bring the Alpine Parrot brand and products to life through a myriad of digital and traditional marketing channels. This person will work on a small but dedicated team, wearing many hats and learning the breadth of the marketing world. The ideal candidate has strong writing skills, an attention to detail, is extremely organized, and is excited to learn the many aspects of marketing. To begin, the work will require approximately 10 hours/week of effort, and pay is $20/hr.

  • Help maintain brand standards for all materials – including print, digital, and partner assets.
  • Engage with influencers and the community to create user-generated content and build brand awareness.
  • Develop content for and execute the Alpine Parrot blog.
