Who You Are & What You Will Bring

Experience: 5+ years of previous Marketing experience in a creative role, preferably in an agency environment. Experience with B2B and B2C Fortune 500 brands

Born Leader – With a knack for galvanizing the team around a common goal, you have a natural ability to bring out the best in everyone around you! You are as brilliant working alone (self-motivated) as you are as leading a team (the motivator).

Storyteller – Your work demonstrates excellent creative and artistic presentation. You have an ability to articulate concepts clearly and compellingly. Style matters just as much as substance, and you have an intuitive sense about what is important to deliver and how to deliver it.

Quick Study – You are fast on your feet, and even faster with your mind! You possess excellent time management skills and have a sense of urgency. Proven ability to work on multiple projects at any given time.

Excellent Communication- You understand how to communicate difficult/sensitive information tactfully. You possess excellent negotiation and conflict-resolution skills.

Flexible - You are able to change directions quickly without significant impact to performance. You effortlessly juggle multiple things simultaneously while delivering information in a timely manner and adhere to established timelines.

Innovative - You drive, develop and support new and improved methods, products, procedures or technologies. You are constantly challenging yourself to come up with authentic and innovative ideas to transform the client’s brand.

You read that “employee-owned” part right? You heard us correctly. You work hard, she works hard, we all work hard… we all succeed and reap the rewards. We have an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) – providing our employees with an ownership interest. We thought you would want to know that. In fact, there is a lot more you would want to know about us, like our FTO policy (no more “accruing” time off), our employer matching 401(k) plan (no vesting period), our “no employee contribution” healthcare option. But we are getting ahead of ourselves here, let’s talk about this exciting opportunity first and we can fill you in on our perks & benefits later.
