Toronto, ON, Canada
Posted on Saturday, June 29, 2024

Later is founded on two success stories that began in 2014: Mavrck, the industry-leading influencer marketing solution (now Later Influence™), and Later, the best social media management platform (now Later Social™) and first-to-market link in bio tool.

We’re trusted by the top social platforms, with partnerships and integrations with Meta, TikTok, X/Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Pinterest.

In 2024, Mavrck and Later officially joined together as one unified business, with a shared vision: to enable the world to make a living with their creativity. We’re now on a mission to build the world’s first Social Revenue Platform.

Later will be the first inclusive platform where social media managers, influencer managers, and creators can come together to collaborate on content. We enable marketers to create high-performing content and engage in authentic collaborations with creators to reach new audiences, drive engagement, and generate predictable ROI.

As a trusted partner and go-to source for social media advice, we help create an engaged community for reliable performance and repeatable growth.

About this position:

Being a Marketing Project Manager = a herder of cats, a lover of deadlines, a juggler of multiple balls and organization skills to match Marie Kondo!

As Later’s Senior Marketing Project Manager, your role will be integral to ensuring success on large-scale, cross-functional marketing projects and ensuring smooth communication between various stakeholders.

You should feel comfortable working across teams and departments, be able to synthesize project requirements and assist with briefing within the team. You will be working alongside designers, copywriters, product marketers, ad strategists, and other marketing team members on a daily basis.

Some of your responsibilities will include revamping & reviewing briefs and processes, reviewing briefs for completeness prior to project kick-off, leading meetings and daily standups with teams, managing Asana tasks for projects, building project plans and updating project status reports and other documentation.

Ultimately, you will ensure projects are delivered on time, to budget and scope — in collaboration with marketing stakeholders.
