Social Media Coordinator

Let’s get to the point: Are you interested in a fulfilling marketing career and the opportunity to work with some high-profile clients in the Kansas City region, but you’re not thrilled about being another cog in a giant agency machine? Join the Crux team instead!

So who is Crux? We like to think of ourselves as our clients’ in-house marketing department—outsourced. We bring the same loyalty and dedication to our clients’ mission but at the fraction of the cost of hiring and retaining a senior-level marketing team. We know the traditional agency model isn’t an ideal fit for everyone, so we take a different approach.

We’re looking for a talented and energetic social media coordinator to help us execute strategic and effective marketing plans for our clients. Founded in 2016, Crux may be young, but our leaders have brought decades of marketing and public relations experience with them. Now we need help implementing many of the tactics and marketing strategies so our clients can truly find their own crux!
