Job Description
Organization: 
Great Work, Inc.
Organization Type: 
501(c)(3)
Job Location: 
Denver Metro
Type of Job: 
Full-time
Job Category: 
Administrative | Communications | Development | Education
Job Description: 

Great Work, Inc. is not a traditional work environment. As an organization, we are fluid and responsive to the changing landscape of those we serve. As team members, our roles are equally fluid to fill in where needed in support of the initiatives, projects and goals of the organization. While this job description is the backbone of this role’s work within the organization, all GWI staff regularly have responsibilities and tasks within other projects as skillsets and expertise are needed.

GWI is experiencing substantial growth with programs operating locally, nationally and internationally and this a critical new role focused on developing comprehensive marketing strategies/implementation for our ecosystem of programs. Great Work, Inc. serves as a Collective of existing and emerging programs and related entities (Embark Education, Framework Cycles, Pinwheel Coffee, The Math Institute, Montessori training etc.)

We are looking for someone with a unique skill set who can think strategically with a 30,000 ft view while also being in the trenches of implementing comprehensive marketing campaigns. We are looking for someone who geeks out to marketing blogs, loves social media, can visualize and pull off an orchestra of multi-channel messaging that elevate awareness and connection to our work. We are looking for someone who fits a culture that values perpetual learning, radical empathy, shattering institutional barriers, ridiculous fun, and a desire to truly and significantly impact youth and educators across the globe. 

GWI is a Denver based non-profit organization focused on learner centered education and educator training. We do a lot of work in Montessori Teacher Training and curriculum development and piloting disruptive education models like a middle school embedded in real world businesses (See Embark Education.)  

We believe that traditional hiring practices have historically and systemically marginalized entire groups of people — including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and people in the LGBTQIA+ community to name a few. We believe that we are better as an organization when we work to deconstruct the barriers intrinsic in that system so that our team has authentic representation from diverse communities, backgrounds and beliefs. Hence, we strongly encourage people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities to apply for roles within our team.
