Marketing Manager (Mid to Senior Level) Position Details

Marketing Manager leading the team

A Marketing Agency job that’s not quite what you expect it to be

As our name “Humble” suggests, we are looking for leaders who are humble in their approach to their work but can lead a team with energy and positivity. We’re looking for people who think unconventionally, get fired up at the opportunity to build and reimagine something new, and also feel a “day well spent” after helping others find their true potential and living transparently–however that all manifests for you!

With a mission of catalyzing the “Success” of others, we invite you to join us in further evolving Humble Bunny and growing our small business towards Japan’s #1 marketing agency from both a product, brand, and impact standpoint, but also as a culture and team-driven employer.

We’re looking for people who want to have an impact on Clients of course, but also on their peers as well as helping Humble Bunny grow as a powerhouse brand.

Humble Bunny has instilled the concept of work-life integration, by defining a culture code that allows members from different backgrounds and cultures to maximize their individuality and enrich not only their work but also their lives, leading to the success of their clients.
This concept is based on the life experiences and entrepreneurial spirit of Nate, the CEO of Humble Bunny.

A Mix of Major Global Brands, and some Underdog Grassroots Ones as Well!


Humble Bunny has worked with many global brands, some of which are not publicly available on the website. Working at Humble Bunny means that you can collaborate with these companies as part of your career. We also work a lot with smaller and mid-size clients. Getting us closer to decision-making roles and often allowing more command.

Take the initiative and be part of a growing brand.

At Humble Bunny, we’re averaging over 25% growth rate year-over-year. And we do that with a small team. If you want to be part of something bigger and have more a claim to the result, we’re an amazing place for you to thrive.

We are small, nimble, and always changing. If you have a good idea, this is the environment where you can implement it and get the support of the CEO and other staff members to help you make that idea a reality. Feel free to bring in proposals for industries you are interested in, plan projects, or start your own company. It is the most interesting way to work.

For example, one front-end web developer was so interested in analytics that he implemented a new system to calculate page depth and subsequently more accurate page performance. As a result of his proactive approach to his ideas, he not only learned new skills, but also contributed significantly to the direction and business execution of an innovative analysis project we were developing. That could be you if you have the fire in you.
