Account Executive/Manager (interactive)

You

A motivated leader ready to manage and lead interactive web projects with confidence from beginning to end. When you hear “java”, you don’t think of coffee. You are a disciplined manager of web resources, time, and budgets. You can work with designers and developers alike to ensure everyone stays focused on goals and objectives, while always keeping an eye on deadlines and scope. You understand the relationship between a client’s business and their web properties, and are prepared to discuss goals, best practices, and industry trends. You love to communicate, and you do it well. You are comfortable solving problems on your own, but humble enough to know when to ask for help or advice from your team. You are looking for a new opportunity for more autonomy and growth opportunities. Lastly, you want to work for a fun and collaborative agency where you can have an immediate impact and can pave your own future.
