POSITION:  Marketing Manager

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 2018



Part business consultant, part account manager, 100% badass — you thrive in a fast-paced, creative environment that lets your business savvy & organizational skills shine. You help develop and oversee the strategic direction for each client--ultimately leading the execution and management of their integrated marketing plan. Your clients are your pride and joy. You are not looking for a sales role, but an opportunity to dedicate your focus to servicing current clients and helping them achieve their goals. When they win, you win. You believe in being the best part of your client’s day.

You are comfortable with the traditional day-to-day responsibilities of Marketing Management but you bring something different. Something pleasantly unexpected. You have a natural curiosity and are motivated by delivering excellent results time and time again. You are an advisor and partner to senior level clients and have developed a keen ability for managing multiple projects (and personalities) at once. You have a lot to offer and are excited to shape a growing agency.
