Job Title: Marketing Manager

Location: Monterey, CA

Target Start Date: Early February

About this position:

The Marketing Manager is a top level position and oversees the execution of all marketing tasks. The Marketing Manager will consult regularly with the CEO, Owner, and Operations Manager to create marketing plans and is responsible for the full execution of those plans. The Marketing Manager reports directly to the Operations Manager, and also the CEO and Owner. The ideal candidate will have experience in retail, wholesale, and e-commerce marketing, but most important is extremely polished verbal communication, writing skills, and critical thinking. The Marketing Manager will interface with many different people both internally and externally, so excellent communication and interpersonal skills are critical. Backscatter is a business specializing in a lifestyle around water and imaging. We believe a candidate will thrive in this position if they share our company passions of diving and photography, thus experience in these areas is considered a plus. A wide degree of creativity and latitude is expected in this position. Due to the very narrow focus of our industry, a quick learner with great critical thinking skills will be a preferred candidate over someone with only extensive marketing experience.

Established in 1994, Backscatter is the largest underwater imaging retailer in the world with locations on both the east and west coasts of the United States. Backscatter also functions as the US distributor for many top brands and manufacturers a custom line of underwater imaging products.
