Job Overview:

We are looking for an Account Executive to join our motivated, passionate and collaborative team. This AE will take charge; you will manage everything from strategic tasks to tactical executions, be the one with the plan, and have the ability to multitask. You are fearless in the face of obstacles and look challenges in the face and say “bring it on!”. And while a lot happens behind the scenes, you’re the one pulling the strings—the one that makes it all possible.

When you become a part of our team, you’ll get all the perks of a big agency with the close-knit community of a small core team. And with team members in NYC, Chicago, Dallas, and LA/OC, you’ll be dialed into a larger community with endless opportunities.

You’re the first to raise your hand, whether it’s to offer help or ask for it, because you’re dedicated to learning from others and pushing yourself. And while you’re detail-oriented, you also never let the big picture out of your sight.

  • Lead internal meetings
  • Effectively communicate creative feedback to internal teams
  • Contribute to the development of project and/or annual client planning documents and presentations
  • Contribute to agency creative briefs

You’ll demonstrate & continue to develop problem-solving abilities to provide solid, efficient solutions:

  • Anticipate potential problems and barriers
  • Identify key elements of a problem and offer creative solutions
  • Actively seek out internal agency resources to solve possible roadblocks
  • Partner with direct supervisor to work through solutions while keeping other projects on track

Qualifications:

  • 2+ years of client services experience, general knowledge of agency, shopper, event and advertising processes
  • Experience with the creative process and overall workflow management 
  • Strong organizational and written communication skills
  • Ability to multitask with an eye for detail 
  • Social media management experience desired across Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest
