Optimal Digital Marketing · Mar 6th 2020
Headquarters: Appleton, Wisconsin URL:Overview
If you’re reading this, you’re interested in the Resource Manager position at Optimal (or maybe you know someone who would be a fit).
You will have a front-row seat in helping our company tangibly generate revenue growth for our clients. Specifically, you will be helping our team find, connect, and maintain relationships with expert freelance partners in various marketing fields.
We believe that one of the most powerful concepts is “Who Not How”. That too many people get stuck on "the how" when they just need to find the right "Who". The right person for any task or project will help you go faster, easier, better, and cheaper. Your mission - should you accept to take it - is to focus 100% on this concept.
We call our contractors “partners” because that is what they are to us, co-creators. We strive to work with the best and have authentic relationships.
We don't send all of our work to partners - in fact, we complete the majority of the work we do for our clients in-house. However, the work we choose to delegate to partners is often the most important work we could be doing with a client in a given quarter. We want the work to be the highest quality possible and to only work with the best partners possible - that's why a Resource Manager is so important. They help us find partners, ensure they're a great fit for our company, delegate the work, ensure effective utilization, monitor performance and grow positive partner relationships.Position Summary
This is a non-technical role that bridges the gap between the outside world and our internal company.
Externally, you are focused on finding the VERY BEST partners to our team that have deep experience in specific domains. You interview them to see if they fit our culture and then help onboard them to our process.
Internally, you are the ultimate helper to our Growth Markers (who serve as account and project managers). Anytime they have work they want help with, you reference your extensive database of partners to find the right one (while making sure our favorite ones are not overbooked). You ensure clear delegation, great follow-through by the partner, and watch the budgets for contracted work. You facilitate 1 on 1 trainings, workshops, and standard operating procedures with the help of your partner network.
