POST protects open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay. We are one of the nation’s most dynamic and successful local land trusts, protecting open space along Skyline Ridge, the San Francisco Peninsula, the Santa Cruz Mountain range and along the San Mateo County Coast.

Located right in downtown Palo Alto, POST’s offices are just two short blocks from CalTrain and the SamTrans bus depot. Our work often takes us outdoors to the properties that we have worked hard to protect with the people, partners and donors that share our vision of land conservation.

The Position

The Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) role along with the President and POST Executive team defines and leads all efforts to execute the mission to protect open space on the peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all. The CMO is responsible for defining and executing the community and donor base growth strategies, overseeing new donor acquisition, paid and organic social media marketing, content marketing, and all external messaging, public and media relations. 

The CMO is also responsible for owning and refining POST’s brand positioning and messaging so that it resonates with both current and future demographic targets. This is a metrics-oriented position that shows results against a defined set of key performance indicators. The CMO and team are responsible for communicating POST land acquisitions and strategies to a broad base of communities, supporters, and media, as well as managing the development operations and marketing technology infrastructure. The CMO will also work closely with the President, the Board of Directors, and a variety of Board Committees.

Based in Palo Alto, CA, the role at POST embraces a hybrid office plan, allowing for a balance between in-person and remote work. This plan entails three days of in-person collaboration on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, complemented by two remote workdays, offering flexibility to accommodate the evolving work landscape.
