Marketing Manager

Tenmast provides enterprise-based software to the affordable housing industry. Affordable housing is a highly regulated industry serving low income families with housing and related services. Our systems include full management of applicants, tenants, rent calculations, inventory, finance/accounting, maintenance, document imaging, and executive reporting. In addition, our system helps clients maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.

Tenmast serves approximately 500 housing organizations nationwide with various software and service solutions. Our clients manage annual budgets ranging from $3 million to nearly $1 billion. Our goal is to provide them with the best tools to meet their fiscal responsibilities and manage their business efficiently.

Purchases of our enterprise software system are made through a formal procurement process that involves preparation of formal proposals in response to published RFP’s. Sales to existing clients is a less formal quotation process. We reach our prospects and clients through traditional communication channels, trade shows and direct sales.

Tasks include ongoing collection of market data to support your initiatives and the Sales process, creating Sales collateral and executing Marketing campaigns.

The Marketing Manager takes direction from the Director of Sales & Marketing, and works collaboratively with the entire Sales Team, Product Development team and Senior Leadership Team.
