New York; London; Singapore; São Paulo and Washington, DC: June 15, 2011The MMA (Mobile Marketing Association) today announced the launch of a new industry job board which will provide recruiters with a critical vehicle for hiring talent in the mobile marketing industry. Developed in partnership with SmartBrief, a leading publisher of targeted business news and information, the MMA SmartBrief Job Board will be delivered each weekday morning to more than 13,000 mobile marketing professionals across North America, 60% of whom are senior executives.
Recruiting and developing talent is a challenge in the competitive mobile marketing industry which is estimated to grow significantly in the next five years.
“As the leading trade association for mobile marketing, we believe it is essential to provide this critical job listings service not only to MMA members but to the broader mobile marketing industry as well,” said Greg Stuart, Global CEO, MMA. “We are confident that this will become an integral resource for talent acquisition and development across the ecosystem.”
As part of the launch, the MMA will offer promotional rates for the job board for a limited time only. Under the promotion, MMA members & non-members will receive a 20 percent discount for all job posting packages purchased by July 31st. Advertisers can choose from two- and four-week durations, as well as annual packages that include 10 or more postings. All job postings will appear on the MMA website job page, the SmartBrief website job page and in every issue of the MMA SmartBrief.

“With the growth projected for the mobile marketing industry, I can think of no better place to launch a job board,” says Rick Stamberger, President & CEO of SmartBrief, Inc. “We’re proud to partner with the MMA on this critical industry recruiting tool adding to SmartBrief’s already established group of vertical job listings services.”
