Marketing Traffic Manager

With a creative and business team's ongoing list of projects and requests, things can get out of control without an organized, strong multitasker to make sure things run smoothly. Who's the right professional to plan and keep those details, assignments, and deadlines straight? A Traffic Manager.

The Intralox Global Marketing Operations Manager is looking for an experienced Traffic Manager to join our department remotely. The successful candidate is the central contact point for all project work that flows through the marketing department, collaborating with Project Managers to track all projects from kickoff to final asset delivery. The Traffic Manager ensures projects flow efficiently through the project manager, creative and digital teams, and external partners based on the business requirements.

The right candidate can manage a wide variety of requests with competing deadlines and limited resources. It's critical they have a deep understanding of department capacity needs, can track bottlenecks, and mitigate accordingly.

As needed, the Traffic Manager will work with the Marketing Strategists (our internal customers) to adjust deadlines while still meeting the commercial teams' needs.
