POSITION SUMMARY                          

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is hiring a Digital Marketing Associate based in the Washington, D.C., metro area.  

In this position, you will support ULI’s digital content producers by training them to publish content on more than 100 websites, and you will collaborate closely to find solutions to their questions and pathways to reaching their content goals. You will also assist with setting up and co-moderating Zoom webinars for livestream events, delivering mobile apps for global events, and providing analytics training and support for all digital platforms. Because you will play a key role in generating meeting notes, maintaining a single source of technical documentation, testing new functionality, and processing invoices, your ability to manage many details and to write clearly will be invaluable.

Your goal is to maintain websites and apps that disseminate our members’ expertise on affordable and workforce housing, sustainable and resilient building strategies, fostering health through the built environment, and other best practices that shape successful cities and regions. You will be responsible for supporting colleagues worldwide with their website, Zoom, app, and analytics needs in a timely, transparent, and friendly manner. The ability to balance a sense of urgency with calm and confident leadership will serve you well.
