The Senior Marketing Manager, National Security, is responsible for creating marketing communications strategy and programs that support go-to-market plans and other growth initiatives. MITRE supports a broad base of customers within the DoD and Intelligence Community, including all branches of the armed services, the Defense Information Systems Agency, and the offices of the Joint Chiefs of the Staff and the Secretary of Defense. The work we do with government, industry, and academia in applied science and advanced technology impacts programs that support the future of U.S. scientific and economic leadership. In this role, you will create and execute campaigns across multiple channels that deliver measurable results, working closely with the manager of Sponsor and Growth Programs and senior leadership in support of MITRE’s national security business strategy.

You are entrepreneurial and self-directed – and able to help and in some cases lead the establishment of organic business development strategies, demand generation, and nurture campaigns in support of revenue and program objectives. MITRE does not currently have a “traditional” sales organization and structure so you will work closely with business leaders to help and in some cases lead the development of go-to-market strategies and business development plans.

You are a strong leader and excellent communicator who can drive consensus and articulate recommendations and trade-offs to senior executives. In this role, you will collaborate with colleagues both within the business and with the MITRE Strategic Communications team to plan and execute marketing programs. You are a skilled storyteller with experience in multi-channel marketing to promote MITRE’s impact and illustrate how we deliver on our mission: Solving Problems for a Safer World.
