Sandra Rand is VP of Marketing at OrionCKB, where she leads the agency’s own demand generation efforts and works with our sales and ad ops team to promote the incredible work we do for clients. She’s responsible for driving traffic to the OCKB website, so if you’ve interacted with us on social media, stumbled upon one of our crazy SlideShare presentations, read our blog, or were inspired by an Orion staff member on a speaking panel, it’s likely Sandra had something to do with it.
Prior to her role at OCKB, Sandra was an inbound marketing consultant, specializing in content creation, SEO, public relations, social media, and email marketing for early stage startups.
When you work at OrionCKB, you work with some of the smartest, most driven digital marketers out there today. Our company growth proves that.
What’s our secret? We don’t hire for a sparkly resume or the eloquent use of marketing doublespeak. A pedigree doesn’t matter to us any more than it is indicative of possibility.
Our approach comes from the gut: We hire hungry, dedicated people who love to learn and love to succeed.
Our team has decades of experience in marketing – performance, SEO, consumer, B2B, PR – and non-marketing disciplines – math, risk management, product management, finance – you name it, we’ve been there.
Think you’d fit in with a crew who values teamwork, accountability, and creativity? Apply to one of our openings and we'd love to chat.
One of the biggest things we look for is people who both work hard and play hard. We love to have fun, but we also care about getting the work done and getting it done excellently. We look for people who want to DO, who agitate for more, and who love being part of a hardworking team."
At Orion, you're entrusted with a lot of responsibility when you earn it. No matter what your age is, your output really dictates what you get to do here."
We have such a great group of people here that we hang out on the weekends and somehow don't get sick of each other."
I never feel like I have to go it alone. Everyone here always has my back and is willing to jump in and help."
I'm allowed to let my creative flag fly. I can be a little salty in our blog and it's not only accepted, but encouraged, since it reminds people we're human."
