Digital Product Marketing and Communications

SOTA Instruments

We are a small and growing natural health company located in Penticton, B.C. – the heart of the Okanagan Valley. We have been providing State-Of-The-Art (SOTA) Wellness Products worldwide since 1996.

Our Culture

Our culture is low-key but high performance. Our company is well organized with a solid foundation to build higher. Our team is collaborative, creative, innovative and hardworking with strong accountability. We are focused on caring for our customers and through collaboration, we achieve our goals. The journey is just as important to us as the destination. We value open, honest and proactive communication. Let’s be honest – if you are tied to titles and corporate positioning, SOTA isn’t for you.

SOTA thrives because of the quality of both the products we offer and the team we have gathered over the past 22 years. We are a small team, but we accomplish a lot – each person is passionate about the goals of SOTA and brings multiple skills to the table. We are a hands-on team, willing to step up, take on new responsibilities and learn new skills as needed, in order to ensure the continued success of SOTA.

The Position

Our immediate need is for a talented and experienced Digital Product Marketing and Communications professional, with experience in natural health. This is a new position at SOTA and requires someone with the skill set to create and implement a comprehensive marketing vision for SOTA and the organizations under the SOTA umbrella.

This position is best suited to a forward thinker who will work closely with our team to build and maintain a strong global web presence. Innovation is key, as the political and regulatory environment surrounding wellness products creates challenges and the need for creative solutions. To date, word-of-mouth has been the primary way people hear about us. Now that technologies similar to ours are becoming more mainstream, it is time for us to step out and show the world what SOTA has to offer.

The position has a strong mandate to help guide SOTA into new and expanding markets. In addition to leading our marketing and communication efforts, this position also requires someone who can quickly learn our company culture and respect the foundation that has been laid, while at the same time play a key role in helping SOTA as a whole move into a new and expanding vision of that foundation.

The opportunities are endless.

We are looking for you

An ethical and passionate person, who thrives on new challenges and wants to make a difference in the world. You are equally able to take charge, with natural leadership qualities, as you are at working within a team. You are idealistic, yet practical, organized, self-motivated and flexible – willing to jump in and use your entire skill set wherever needed. Big egos need not apply.

You are able to learn quickly and work effectively with individuals and teams in a wide variety of settings across the organization, applying interpersonal skills and taking a problem-solving approach. You are also able to handle highly confidential and sensitive issues with skill, tact and diplomacy, all with a high degree of ethical and professional behavior.

Your excellent verbal and written communication skills mean that you understand listening is more important than speaking and have the ability to relate to, and effectively communicate with, people on many different levels; customers, distributors, practitioners, researchers, scientists and media.
