Core Competencies

  • Intuitive Communication: You will be a client’s primary point of contact and responsible for relaying updates to our team; you must be personable, professional, and responsive.

  • “Big Picture” Thinking and Knowledge of Digital Marketing: Clients will ask questions about their digital marketing (particularly SEO, PPC, and social media) and website content, and every service we offer ties into the next. We need someone who can see the connections and make good choices for both the client and the agency as a whole. Presenting marketing strategy decks, you’ll need to be able to tell a story that describes how our team of specialists will help achieve the client’s goals through tactical marketing efforts.

  • Resourceful and Confident Self-Starter: Once you learn the ropes, we’ll expect you to own your accounts to keep campaigns on track. You will need to take the initiative to make decisions and recommendations, and to follow up with clients to progress projects and maintain successful relationships. You will solve problems every single day, so we need someone with a solutions-oriented mind.
  • Takes Pride In Work: We need someone who takes any project, big or small, and puts everything they have into it. Mistakes are okay. Sloppiness is not.

Personality Musts:
