Ol’ Marketing Wiz Lynn T sent this one over – there has to be someone from the network interested!

They have a great job opening for a Director of Product Management at Affinity Express. They offer the only physical and digital marketing production platform that covers the full range of SMB branding and marketing needs (e.g. websites, print ads, logos, business cards, video ads…). They provide our services on a white-label basis through channel partners that serve SMBs, such as newspapers, office retail and web marketing companies. Their colleagues include a creative global network of 1,600 designers and writers (AE employees, not crowdsourced), and a team of expert consultants and account managers who work with our channel partners to set them up for success.

Lynn would love to have any DCLK Alumni reach out to her to apply or recommend someone who may be a fit. The role can be located anywhere as most of us in the US work from home, but NYC/NJ or Chicago area are preferred due to proximity to colleagues for face to face meetings.
