BenchPrep delivers the most advanced and flexible learning experience for certification, credentialing, test prep, continuing education, and training. Our cloud-based learning platform helps training organizations, associations and the extended enterprise deliver a highly engaging and effective learning experience for individuals looking to advance their careers. We incorporate the latest in learner-centered technology, including personalization, gamification, data science, usability and omni-channel delivery.  

We’re sitting in a pivotal time in the BenchPrep history. The number of learners on our cloud-based learning platform has reached almost 7 million in 2021. 

We’re committed to helping people learn better, and that starts with our own employees. 

COVID-19:

Speaking of our people, in March 2020, we put safety first and quickly moved our people to working remotely. We’ve learned that our employees are really productive working at home and still (mostly) work remotely. Our first core value is “People First” and the pandemic has reinforced how true this value reigns to us. What is the future of BenchPrep’s plans for working in-office or remote?  We haven’t finalized that, but what we do know is that collaboration and connection are our top priorities. Remote, in-office (Chicago), or hybrid... employees know how they work best.  Let us know what your preferences or requirements are for being remote only, hybrid or in-office.

About the Role:

BenchPrep is looking for a talented Marketing Coordinator to help our high-performing marketing team generate and nurture qualified sales leads, execute campaigns, manage communications, and coordinate our activities to ensure we meet our goals.

  • Write marketing and sales emails to support communications before, during, and after campaigns to maximize results and ensure effective follow-up
  • Manage our blog and content calendar, including writing some blog posts, as well as coordinating with freelance writers and the marketing designer to create on-message, on-brand content that supports our sales and marketing goals
  • Manage social media channels, including writing posts, engaging with our community, and growing our following, specifically on LinkedIn and Twitter
  • Support product marketing efforts by writing product release notes and communicating  product updates to our customers
  • Work with the marketing team to optimize lead flow and demo requests on our website
  •  Work with cross-functional teams to submit BenchPrep and our employees for industry and company awards and conference speaking engagements

Skills and experiences we value**:

  • Excellent writing skills and proven experience writing and editing marketing copy (emails, blog posts, social media posts, etc.)
  • 1+ years experience in a sales or marketing role where you have developed knowledge of traditional and digital marketing, content marketing, and/or social media marketing (directly applicable internships will be considered); B2B SaaS a plus
  • Social media savvy, ideally managing for a brand or demonstrated through an active social media presence (LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.)
  • Analytical and strategic problem-solving skills with a focus on tactical, practical execution and driving results

Ideal candidates might have:

  • Experience with Salesforce and Hubspot (or other marketing automation platform)
  • Bachelor’s degree in marketing, advertising, communications, or related field

**Note: We know that excellent candidates can have all sorts of backgrounds and experiences, so please don’t hesitate to apply even if you don’t meet 100% of the listed requirements!

You’ll fit in with an attitude that demonstrates:

  • Strong teamwork, collaboration, and communication skills across departments and functions
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves
  • Eagerness to learn about B2B marketing
  • Fast-paced mentality with a bias toward action
