Current openings with American Philanthropic

Director of Marketing and Business Development

Location: Phoenix, AZ preferred; Philadelphia, PA, Denver, CO, Raleigh, NC, Kansas City, MO, or Chicago, IL also acceptable; remote work considered for exceptional candidates

Type of position:  Mid-Senior Level; Full-time

Compensation: Competitive salary and benefits commensurate with experience


The Director of Marketing and Business Development will join a vibrant and entrepreneurial leadership group to further establish American Philanthropic as a leader in nonprofit consulting. The Director will oversee the marketing and business development department, which supports company growth by securing and retaining clients and implementing a strategic marketing plan.

The Director of Marketing and Business Development is primarily responsible for overseeing the development and execution of a comprehensive, multi-channel marketing plan; providing strategic guidance to the firm’s overall marketing and business development strategy; managing two business development staff members; and assisting with the business development efforts of other staff within the firm. 

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Developing and executing, in collaboration with the firm’s partners, a comprehensive marketing strategy that includes web, social media, email, and direct mail components;
  • Working closely with the firm’s partners and executive leadership to execute the firm’s current business growth plan;
  • Monitoring marketing and business development benchmarks against company goals and plans, and adjusting goals and/or strategies as needed;
  • Leading efforts to update and/or develop new proposal templates and company collateral materials (in collaboration with firm partners, designers, and business development staff);
  • Overseeing business development systems and processes to ensure consistent communication, information capture, and tracking;
  • Managing two full-time, remote staff in their work to draft client proposals;
  • Preparing for industry conferences, planning firm trainings and events, and managing up to consulting staff on their business development efforts, among their other duties;
  • Overseeing contractors/vendors who may assist in executing the plan, as the marketing plan may require; and
  • Assisting with other executive, managerial, and administrative tasks as needed.

Ideally, you will be located in the Phoenix metro area, but proximity to one of American Philanthropic’s other offices or remote work may be considered for exceptional candidates. The position requires up to 25% travel, and on occasion will demand availability outside of normal business hours in order to meet pressing deadlines.


At least six years of professional experience, including at least three years of experience with digital marketing platforms, is strongly preferred. Well-honed organizational skills, a high degree of personal initiative and conscientiousness, keen intelligence, and superb interpersonal skills are required.

Moreover, the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the American Philanthropic mission of strengthening society’s “little platoons”—the independent mediating institutions and voluntary associations that constitute civil society and are vital to human flourishing—and you should be enthusiastic about the opportunity to help build a fast-growing consulting and services firm into a major force in the philanthropic sphere.

To excel and advance at American Philanthropic over time, the candidate will need to demonstrate:

  • Marketing knowledge, experience, and a record of success on both a strategic and tactical level;
  • Strong communication and collegiality, as well as a capacity to build personal relationships of trust and respect both with clients and colleagues;
  • An exceptional ability to multi-task and effectively manage many competing deadlines and priorities with a high degree of prudence and conscientiousness;
  • Excellent writing, analytical, and organizational skills, as demonstrated by consistently thorough and thoughtful execution of work;
  • Capacity to take personal ownership of projects, accomplish tasks, and manage up to other colleagues;
  • A strong work ethic, humble manner, and demonstrated willingness to go above and beyond when necessary; and
  • An effective contribution to company culture, exhibiting an attitude both internally and externally that supports American Philanthropic’s development as a company that values practical wisdom, excellence, integrity, hard work, and conviviality.

Interested candidates should submit a résumé, a cover letter, and at least two samples of work products.
