Overview

Not the typical origin story, Apiary began with the Founder leaving her San Francisco ad agency & B2B tech startup life to travel the world, with the grand plan to “Figure it out later.” Between milking cows in New Zealand and exploring rice fields in Bangladesh, she began independent consulting. Via the generous referrals of friends and colleagues, things quickly grew into too much work for one person. Moreover, clients were requesting flexible access to deep expertise across a variety of skill sets. Talented digital marketers started coming out of the woodwork asking how they too could contribute to big client projects while working remotely and with the flexibility to do important things outside of work. The demand for curating structurally flexible teams of independent performance digital marketing consultants (“The Collective”) became clear, and in 2015 Apiary Digital was born—a passionate community of on-demand marketers ready to drive results for clients.

We are on a mission to take Apiary Digital to the next level, seeking a Director of Operations for this thriving, unique, small agency business. This is an exciting opportunity to build on a business that has both a strong foundation and room to partner in creating the future of the organization.
