NEXTpittsburgh achieved record growth last year with more than 2.1 million unique visitors. We’ve continued on pace in 2021, and plan to continue ramping up to do even more impressive things in 2022. That’s why we’ve just created a new position, Director of Strategic Growth.

As the go-to source for news and events in our city, NEXT is lucky to have so many sales opportunities that we don’t currently have the capacity to meet them. We are seeking to grow our revenue by 15% next year, and we believe it’s easily within our ability to do so with the right team member.

The role will begin as a part-time opportunity (25 hours/week) with the possibility of expanding to full-time work (40 hours a week) as the business grows.

The Director of Strategic Growth will require a strategic, integrated approach to marketing and business development. The right candidate will possess a deep understanding of up-to-date online advertising technology to drive new client growth as well as strategic vision for continuing NEXTpittsburgh’s broader business growth.

Candidates must bring a track record of success with online advertising, generating marketing ideas, creating robust new business pipelines, increasing new client revenue, and diversifying the portfolio of advertisers. Expertise in social media advertising is a major plus.

We love what we do and look forward to working with our next Director of Strategic Growth. Apply here!

The right candidate for us will be a charismatic modern marketer — a self-starter with stamina and passion for championing NEXTpittsburgh’s continued growth. We’re looking for a savvy leader who consistently demonstrates superior problem-solving and decision-making skills and who is prepared to roll up their sleeves, eager to dig into the task at hand. This role requires focus and creativity to ensure NEXT continues to grow as the indispensable and innovative digital media company in the Pittsburgh region.
