Job Description


Donovan Energy is seeking a marketing leader to work collaboratively with the company’s senior
leadership and sales teams to develop and implement our strategic and tactical marketing plans. This
role requires someone with strong business to business marketing experience, ideally with
solution/service companies.

A primary outcome is to drive more successful engagement with specific decision makers in our target
industry verticals (healthcare, industrial, hospitality, senior living, parking and office) and to increase the
overall brand awareness and positioning of our capabilities and results that our solutions deliver.

The role also includes responsibility for the creation and delivery of the marketing activity calendar and
content across multiple platforms (website, social media, press releases and speaking events). The
primary, key performance indicator of success will be sales leads that are generated and passed along to
the sales team; the secondary indicator is a branded and continually updated/refreshed identity that
everyone in the organization can easily comprehend and communicate.

The ideal candidate has experience in leveraging the full capabilities of our existing marketing tools:
CRM (Hubspot), PowerPoint, LinkedIn, and other lead generation tools/tactics, as well as a background
in creating and driving regional groups and events. Furthermore, the candidate should have sufficient
experience, confidence and aptitude to identify, articulate and execute on marketing-related strategies
without day-to-day oversight; but at the same time is sufficiently trainable and flexible to reside
comfortably and successfully within our dynamic business and industry.


​Donovan Energy was founded 6 years ago and has grown to the level that it now requires the efforts of a full-time marketing professional.
