Marketing Strategist

Detroit, Michigan, United States


Skidmore Studio is looking for an enthusiastic, self-starting Marketing Strategist to focus primarily on one key client: Skidmore Studio! We’re a small creative studio located in the heart of downtown Detroit that specializes in brand strategy, design, and messaging for food and fun brands. While we’re working to help our clients reach their customers, we need someone to help us better reach ours.

If you love working with a team to develop marketing strategies and execute tactics that generate results, you might be the right fit. And if you can speak intelligently and contribute to conversations as diverse as public relations, sales strategy, SEO, email marketing, and social media—even better. Our ideal candidate is detail-oriented with strong analytical chops, business savvy, solid writing skills, and the ability to think across channels, mediums, and functions.

Because we’re a tiny, high-energy team, you must be comfortable collaborating, defending your position, and fulfilling tasks that range from big-picture to administrative.


Each member of the Skidmore Studio team is expected to continuously strive to fulfill the Studio’s core purpose and uphold our core values.
