Make Your Work Matter

Ideas matter – and your work should, too.

Red Edge, a leading digital advocacy firm specializing in apps, ads, and ideas is looking for a detail-oriented person to drive digital communications for our clients, which include major leaders in the corporate, non-profit, and association worlds.

We’re looking for someone who can listen intently and work with our team of highly creative colleagues to conceptualize, develop, and execute communications and advertising plans across email, web, and advertising. Day-to-day core responsibilities will include developing grassroots email strategies and copy, analyzing performance of digital ad campaigns across networks like Facebook and Google, interacting with clients, looking for patterns in data, and keeping track of key metrics. In-depth knowledge of Facebook Ads, Google Adwords and Google Analytics is required.

We’re looking for someone who is self-motivated, organized, and has a keen interest and understanding of online ad platforms (such as Facebook, Adwords, or anything Programmatic) and familiar with other advertising mediums.

About Red Edge

We’re a Courthouse, Arlington-based digital advocacy firm which primarily assists clients on free-market and personal-liberty issues and we:

  • Work in a fast-paced, exciting environment
  • Don’t care about titles
  • Do care about talent
  • Don’t care about fancy advanced degrees
  • Do care about work ethic
  • Won’t be impressed by the three years of “experience” you had stagnating at one job
  • Will be impressed by a cool project you made on your own

The ideal candidate would:

  • Enjoy kicking ass
  • Work hard and play hard
  • Have a good sense of humor
  • Know what they don’t know, and be willing to learn
  • May lack for experience but not of a desire to learn
  • Enjoy messing with the status quo
  • Want to create one’s own job description based on his/her own success

Dress: Casual, except when we have to meet clients. Full-time hours are 9:30-6:30, but flexible.
Benefits: 401k contribution, health insurance contribution, commuter funds. But the most important benefit is enjoying your work and knowing that it’s meaningful.

Develop A Freer World

Live By Your Code

We’re looking for someone to join our office and culture who loves building websites with a purpose.

We really don’t care about the skills you have in specific languages, although if you don’t know HTML, CSS, or client-side Javascript then we’d be surprised if you’re a good fit. Smart, dedicated people can pick up new languages and frameworks relatively quickly.

Experience with WordPress, Sass, Twig, Laravel, relational databases with millions-to-billions of rows, and social media APIs are a plus but not a requirement.

  • Are you the kind of person who always has a few projects going on at once?
  • Do you sometimes stay up late at night tinkering with new languages and frameworks, or hacking away at an undocumented API?
  • Are you the kind of person who isn’t afraid of making and admitting a mistake — and then learning from it?
  • Do you enjoy learning from people with different backgrounds and skills than your own
  • Are you interested in utilizing digital tools and data to increase personal and economic freedom for more people?

If the above are true, you’re probably a good fit for Red Edge.
