About Optimus Technologies
Optimus Technologies manufactures EPA-compliant, biodiesel fuel systems for medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines. Optimus' patented technology enables fleets to reduce fuel costs and carbon emissions (80%+) by utilizing 100% biodiesel. The Optimus system easily integrates into existing operations to facilitate the transition to low carbon fuels.
Founded in 2010 and based in Pittsburgh, PA, Optimus is driven by the vision and the knowledge that other alternative fuel solutions such as CNG, LNG and electrification are prohibitively expensive and do not provide the same environmental or performance benefits as biodiesel.
You’re a versatile, motivated doer who’s excited to bring your skills to an innovative clean energy company. You come in with a broad skill set—you’re excited to work on building a marketing strategy, are a strong writer, and can handle basic design, photo editing, Excel, and website updates.
You’re keen to contribute your own creativity and ideas for marketing Optimus, collaboratively hone these ideas, and execute on them. You’ll be an integral part of this startup transforming fleet vehicles to renewable fuels.
Areas of Responsibility Include:
Creating a comprehensive marketing plan
Creating content for social media, website, newsletters, and other marketing initiatives
Managing our social media presence
Updating our website to reflect new content, drive engagement, and improve user experience, SEO and accessibility
Researching, reaching out to, and organizing press contacts
Assisting with press releases
Assisting with the development of new marketing collateral (eg, brochures and presentations)
Engaging with online communities in an authentic and meaningful way
Reviewing and analyzing metrics on all digital channels
We encourage you to apply if this mostly describes you:
Communicator: You have stellar writing skills and are a clear and proactive communicator.
Meticulous: You approach your work with thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
Strategic thinker: You bring creativity and your own ideas for growing our brand to the table.
Doer: You get things done. You’re eager to learn new skills and aren’t afraid of taking on projects and tasks that are new to you.
Collaborator: You value and seek contributions and feedback from your teammates. You both give and receive support and aren’t afraid to jump in when an extra pair of hands is needed.
Desired Skills and Qualifications
