Do you live for crafting the perfect email subject line, tweet, or Instagram caption? Are you the go-to event planner in your work or social circle?

If any of this has you thinking “it’s me!”, then you could be the creative, organized, and driven junior brand ambassador we want for our marketing team! 

About Us

Founded in 1997 and based in Minneapolis, MN, Tightrope Media Systems’ Cablecast team helps cities, schools, and community media organizations get locally produced video content to viewers on cable TV, websites, and streaming apps. Our product development is fueled by our passion to ensure that local media organizations can thrive in a rapidly expanding content delivery environment. Released in 2018, our Cablecast streaming apps have become the HU-Flix of hyperlocal content, making it simple and affordable for local stations across the U.S. to reach viewers on the fastest growing platforms. 

The cross platform video delivery needs of our core market are now ubiquitous across a broad range of industries, and we’ve been able to leverage what we’ve built over the last 25 years to support a wide range of new customers. This means we’re not only profitable, we’re growing! 

Our unique company culture is friendly, flexible, and fun. We are a remote-first team with low turnover that values self-starters, communal input, healthy work/life balance, and positive attitudes in the face of a challenge. If this sounds like you, you'd probably make an excellent addition to our team! 

About You

  • 1-2 years experience in graphic design, copywriting, event planning, or social media/email marketing (professional employment, area of study, internship, or volunteer work).
