At 3Degrees, we help companies around the globe work toward a decarbonized future. The Marketing Manager role provides senior level marketing and communication expertise in support of the Utility Partnerships (UP) business unit. Reporting to the Director of Utility Partnerships Marketing, this role will work closely with the program and creative services teams to develop and recommend data-driven marketing plans for UP programs, and be responsible for the implementation of these plans. The range of marketing activities includes crafting messaging and copy for consumer audiences across a variety of channels, holistically managing marketing plans including tactics and vendors, and building collaborative and strong working relationships both internally and with clients.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Director of Utility Partnerships Marketing. The UP marketing team is based in Portland, OR. We have a preference for this new team member to join us in our Portland, OR office where you can enjoy a flexible, hybrid working schedule, or a secondary preference to work from our San Francisco, CA, Portland, ME or New York, NY office. Highly qualified candidates located in other parts of the United States may also be considered.


Specifically, the Marketing Manager will be charged with four main areas of responsibility: 

Client Management:

  • Establish marketing expertise and trusting relationships with clients and remove barriers hindering successful implementation of marketing goals
  • Facilitate the gathering of client feedback and lead opportunities for improvement on teams' marketing work
  • Build, manage, and continuously improve marketing processes and deliverables to strengthen client relationships and meet program enrollment goals
  • Ensure clients are up to date on marketing best practices as well as new products and services
  • Regularly engage with clients to pitch new ideas, or communicate status and results of marketing plans

Marketing Strategy:

  • Lead the planning and development of integrated marketing strategies and creative campaigns across a variety of channels
  • Develop full-funnel strategies that deliver positive customer experiences and cost efficiency
  • Provide hands-on advisory services, development and management of marketing materials for use across multiple channels and campaigns including acquisition, retention and engagement tactics
  • Work directly with internal designers and program managers as well as key personnel at utility clients, such as brand managers, to produce creative copy and visuals that are consistently on-brand, on-voice, on-message and impactful
  • Lead the marketing strategy for RFPs or other business development activities

Project Management:

  • Develop annual marketing plans budgets, and act as both gatekeeper and conductor to ensure that all projects and materials are delivered to specification, on time and to the standards of 3Degrees’ partners
  • Participate in strategic planning sessions with 3Degrees staff to ensure proper allocation of resources (labor hours and expenses) and identify/alleviate potential challenges that may take a project off course
  • Responsible for implementing tactical plans, including gathering project requirements, filling out briefs, creating project calendars and tracking milestones and deadlines in project management tools
  • Proactively manage project deadlines and when they’re in jeopardy and self-manage workload — raising a flag early if additional resources are needed
  • Identify opportunities for operational efficiency and take on special projects as assigned

Marketing Results:

  • Leverage internal subject matter experts to ensure 3Degrees best practices and insights are applied, and regularly introduce new ways of looking at marketing challenges
  • Manage and regularly report on key performance indicators (KPI) and take responsibility for adjusting marketing strategies to achieve optimal outcomes
  • Partner with internal data experts to segment customer lists, and design and deliver positive customer journeys, and evolve segmentation nuances to continually improve the efficacy of delivering clients’ enrollment goals
  • Leverage data and message testing to further develop messaging pillars and improve campaign results across new and existing target audiences
