About Us

Wild Alaskan Company’s mission is to accelerate humanity’s transition to sustainable food systems by fostering meaningful, interconnected relationships between human beings, wild seafood and the planet.

We deliver wild-caught, sustainable seafood to households across the United States. Powered by our custom-built eCommerce platform and three generations of history and expertise in the Alaskan fishing industry, we constantly strive to meet our promise of a top-notch product and experience. And we do it all in a fully-remote environment that is fast-paced, challenging, and fun.

  • Manage the brand media budget to deliver on brand objectives, business KPIs, and audience/member targets. 
  • Work in close collaboration with the performance and growth marketing teams to ensure “full funnel” cohesion in our media strategy and budgets (ensure that brand media seamlessly feeds into the full-funnel/performance marketing strategy). 
  • Additional duties as assigned.


  • 10+ years working in media, advertising, brand marketing.
  • Creative and courageous media/brand thinker with a proven track record of both leveraging proven strategies, as well as creating new ones that break the mold and achieve results for the brand/business/products.
