ABOUT CODE NATION
Code Nation is a community of teenagers, technologists, teachers, business leaders, and other champions. A movement spanning cities, cultures, and industries, our community builds bridges across social and economic divides and unites people with the power to change each others’ lives.
Code Nation equips students with the skills, experiences, and connections that together create access to careers in technology. With a volunteer teaching cohort of over 300 professional web and software developers and a network of school and company partners, we provide coding courses and work-based learning programs to students who attend under-resourced high schools. Our industry-aligned curriculum and vast network of supporters provide students with the tech skills and social capital they need to break into the tech workforce.
During the 2019-2020 school year, Code Nation pivoted to reach 1,630 students in 72 programs across the Bay Area, Chicago, and New York City, 100% virtually. Software developers collectively volunteered more than 45,000 hours to provide in-person and remote learning in support of Code Nation’s mission in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and New York City.
Code Nation is committed to being an inclusive, pro-Black, and anti-racist organization. Ideal candidates are committed to educational and tech equity and working against institutional inequities. We believe that anyone can learn to code, and everyone should have access to careers in the thriving tech workforce. Check out our latest commitment with CS for All to provide coding courses, workplace experiences, and industry mentorship with a focus on equity and representation for 1,200 students across New York City, Chicago, and the Bay Area by Summer 2021.
Code Nation is seeking a Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing. While the Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing position has been open, a consultant has been supporting critical activities and has completed an assessment of the organization’s communications-related strengths, threats, and opportunities, as well as a high-level integrated communications and marketing strategy that this position can build upon. The Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing will enter their role with overlapping support from this consultant to ensure continuity and a strong onboarding experience.
We are eager to identify a professional who is passionate about the work we are doing to challenge structural inequities in the tech sector and who has the skills necessary to enhance our capacity to tell our story to key audiences and to develop materials necessary to advance our program objectives. The Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing will be responsible for managing both our communications and marketing functions. They will report to the Development Director, will partner with a staff member in each of our program regions who will spend part of their time on communications and marketing work, and will have access to the resources necessary to hire creative consultants and vendors in support of their work.
In the first year, the Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing will create key structures that we are currently missing - an editorial calendar, structures to collect stories, identifying and training brand ambassadors to tell our story, and developing materials to support our program team in their work (recruiting school partners, company partners, volunteers, and student participants). Over time, the Senior Manager of Communications and Marketing will develop a broader vision for our communications and marketing in service of establishing Code Nation as an inclusive, pro-Black and antiracist organization that is part of a rich ecosystem of individuals and organizations that are challenging structural inequities in the tech sector. Ultimately, a candidate who assumes this position will be successful if they are a strong strategist capable of prioritizing and executing their actions thoughtfully, possess a depth of knowledge in some aspects of marketing and communications, and are capable of managing resources to supplement their skills and contribute to their own learning.
The salary range for this position is $70,000 - 85,000.
