Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) is seeking an Director of Marketing for Amara, a multi-award winning web platform for subtitling and translating videos. Our ideal candidate is a positive, creative, data-driven storyteller with a desire to contribute to a global mission with their personal flair.
PCF is a nonprofit working to build a more open, collaborative, and inclusive world. As our revenue-driven flagship initiative, Amara, enables tens of millions of viewers to fully engage with videos that would otherwise be inaccessible. Amara is used by organizations like TED, California Academy of Sciences, and Ellen MacArthur Foundation to engage viewers in hundreds of different languages.
The Director of Marketing will work closely with our Product and Sales teams to create a Marketing Strategy and lead its execution. We are looking for an individual with the ability to excel at both leading a strategy and executing on it.
While internet video has exploded, language is still a significant barrier to education, economic opportunity, political participation, and other areas of cultural life. Amara connects millions of people to help break down these barriers and allows hundreds of organizations to make their content more accessible through innovative technology.
Amara is a project of the Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF), a nonprofit 501c3. We are driven by our mission to help build a more collaborative, inclusive world – whether by making more content accessible or helping people engage with one another across languages and cultures. We believe a participatory and inclusive world leads to a more understanding and caring society.
PCF develops technology and services that ensure everyone has access to all that the internet has to offer. From the abundance of free education available, to gaining insights about the many different cultures around the globe, information is critical to building a more equitable and peaceful society.
Amara and PCF are based out of Massachusetts, but the team is global and works virtually. You’ll be collaborating with a talented and passionate team striving to make positive social impact. The team uses chat and video apps (Slack, Google Hangouts, etc) as well as email for internal communication.
We are an inclusive workplace, where all team members have a voice.
We encourage participation and engagement. Our diversity in backgrounds
and life experiences makes us unique and helps us innovate. On our team
you’ll find incredibly talented professionals who are also musicians,
avid dessert connoisseurs, beer brewers, pet fanciers, master chess
players, gardeners, and many other stripes!
The work of the Participatory Culture Foundation is strengthened by the diversity of our network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and much more. We welcome applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQIA community, and persons with disabilities.
