Editor-in-Chief, Speaker, Host of 'Content Lab' Podcast

Last week, I sat down with IMPACT VP of Services Brie Rangel to discuss the top qualities you should look for in your next digital marketing manager hire. (And, if you missed it, she also co-authored an exceptionally comprehensive list of marketing interview questions earlier this year.)

But how do you get the right job candidates in the door? 

With the right digital marketing manager job description. 

So, to help all of you hiring managers and recruiters who may be hiring a digital marketing manager for the first time — or you're looking to revamp the job description you already have, so as to attract the top-performing marketer you need on your team — we've put together the job description below. 

We designed the job description to be agile enough for hiring managers in any industry to customize and tailor it, as needed, while still having a strong foundational job description that will attract the right candidates.

Now, without further ado, here is the job description...
