Life is Good Vice President of Brand Marketing in Boston, Massachusetts
We're glad you're here.
We've got an inspiring story to tell and a growing brand focused on improving the lives of millions. You have the storytelling, partnership, and creative know-how to fuel the growth of our community, business, and brand.
We’re innovative, focused, and powered by optimism. You do your best work with your sleeves rolled up, leading people and driving your big ideas forward while managing the day-to-day workload and process.
If your experience includes hands-on leadership of a growing customer-focused brand, marketing partnerships, campaign strategies, community expansion, and creative output (social, copy, photography, graphics, and more), we want to hear your story.
You may be wondering why this brand leader role is open. Our current (beloved) VP of Brand Marketing is leaving for an opportunity to work her magic with a health and wellness brand. We will miss her many contributions to our growth. She's still here for a few weeks, making sure her talented team feels prepared for a new leader, and we are grateful.
This role is based in Boston and you will be working on-site on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You will occasionally visit our workplace in Hudson, New Hampshire.
This application is unique and will take some time. We chose the questions with intention. If you don't answer them, we’ll assume you're not serious about joining the team. This is your chance to share more about yourself than a resume can convey. You may want to read all the questions before beginning your answers. Some find it helpful to compose answers in another format and paste them into the application.
Our compensation strategy combines robust market data for companies our size and an innovative bonus program.
Everyone who applies will get a response from a human. We know that's not the norm and that's ok.
