Jobs at Zack's Mighty

Field Marketing Manager

Here at Zack’s Mighty, we love tortilla chips, but we hate when they break in guacamole. We believe that there are two types of people in this world: those that like tortilla chips and those that freaking love tortilla chips.  If you are the latter, you’ve come to the right place!  Our invincible chips are sold in retailers nationwide including Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmers Market and Wegmans, and now we’re looking for a Field Marketing Manager to help us drive trial and awareness in store and at events!

This role is responsible for engaging customers through in-person demos, events, and in real life brand activations. The Field Marketing Manager will assess our overarching goals and current strategies, proposing campaigns and initiatives that deliver a high return on investment. This is both a strategic and tactical-oriented role, focused on interpreting the brand strategy, and applying customer and category insights to build commercially relevant field campaigns.

  • Work with sales team to create budgets for individual retailers and identify opportunities for support, then execute against budget to achieve overall sales goals.
  • Build and monitor reporting processes to track the ROI of demos and events to measure impact and alignment with company goals.
  • Pursue partnerships with brands that could enhance our overall demo experience (i.e. salsa)
  • Evaluate and manage third-party agency support where required
