Hi all!


My company, Atlantic Media, is looking to hire a marketing operations specialist. It's a small, fun team with great, creative, enthusiastic people. If any of you are interested, or know someone in a bummer job who knows their way around Marketo, I'd be grateful to anyone who passed along the info.
