  • Oversee the creation, execution, and promotion of special events and activations aimed to welcome and engage the local community in interesting, creative, and inspiring ways
  • Work hand-in-hand with property teams to develop, execute, and promote a marketing calendar of compelling promotions
  • Manage direct response channels like email marketing and paid media, as well as automated communication with our guests
  • Create visual collateral, from property signage and menus to logo-ed merchandise and event invitations
  • Compile monthly marketing performance reports, and use this data to inform and improve future efforts
  • Be excited to develop professionally, maintain a high level of digital marketing knowledge, and to learn what you don’t already know, with support and resources from our team
  • Assist in training, mentoring, and leading our marketing team members



  • Strong communicator with excellent writing skills who can effectively convey and manage different brand voices
  • Strong sense of visual style and design. Photography, videography, and/or graphic design skills are preferred.
  • Familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite, particularly InDesign, or a strong willingness to learn
  • Passion for food and beverage, hospitality, and immersing yourself into local communities
  • Proactive, disciplined, and comfortable working independently
  • Exceptionally detail-oriented
  • Skilled at establishing effective relationships, and a team player who can work and communicate with counterparts from different departments to achieve goals
  • Ability to solve problems quickly, think creatively, and focus on multiple priorities at a time
  • Flexibility to work occasional evenings and weekends
  • Ability to travel and visit properties throughout the week



Early Bird Night Owl has an office in downtown Durham NC. We work on a hybrid model, with team members working from the office, remotely, and at our properties.
