MEMPHIS, TN—Explore Bike Share, a local 501(c)3 that is implementing a robust and inclusive 600-bike bike share system in Memphis next Spring, has officially opened its search for a Community Engagement &Marketing Director (CEMD).
Explore Bike Share’s CEMD will support the Executive Director across program development, community outreach, marketing, sponsorship, and workplace culture.
Initially, the CEMD will collaborate with both the Executive Director and the Board of Directors to develop a deep knowledge of the field, core programs, operations, and Explore Bike Share’s revenue model.

To that end, Explore Bike Share is seeking a passionate communicator with excellent interpersonal and multidisciplinary project skills to fill the role. Applicants must show excellence in organizational management and the ability to work effectively in collaboration with diverse groups of people.
In placing 60 stations and 600 bikes throughout Orange Mound, Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, South Memphis, and Binghampton, Explore Bike Share will be introducing the largest bike share system of its kind in the nation.
Once the system is rolling in Memphis next spring, the CEMD will be responsible for expanding local revenue generating and fundraising activities and ensuring ongoing local programmatic excellence through rigorous evaluation, among other team-oriented tasks.
