We are a busy, collegial team excited about making a difference and adding value in a dynamic, fast-paced environment.
The digital communications manager will work with the communications team and across programs to ensure NTI web properties are functional, secure, visible, and tracking best practices for web design and digital operations. The person also will help guide NTI’s social media practices to promote NTI content and materials, and develop strategies to expand and influence our audiences.
A critical element of the position is to manage Salesforce Cloud and related tools (Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Click & Pledge, FormAssembly) and to train and support NTI staff on Salesforce.
