Worldwide Adventures—River Rafting, Bicycle Tours, Ziplining, Aerial Adventure Parks, Trekking!

Our clients run adventure travel businesses around the world, and we help them find great new customers—while supporting the stewardship of people, place, and planet.

We’re hiring a well-rounded, early career digital marketing coordinator (minimum 1-2 years experience) to focus on billable client work for marketing strategy.

Liquid Spark is a small agency—a team of 9 people—so if you’re looking for a 401K and a defined career hierarchy, we’re not for you.

The flip side of our small size is that we reward entrepreneurial people who take initiative—we want you to propose (and execute) the smart ideas your current boss keeps ignoring. And you’ll be working with senior management at client companies, not locked in a cubicle with no client contact.

We’re a mostly remote team with headquarters in Bryson City, North Carolina in the Smoky Mountains. We’re open to a remote hire for this position.

We’re proud to be a One Percent for the Planet company. Our mission is to create practical marketing that inspires adventure, action, and stewardship of people, place, and planet.
