Account Director

San Diego, CA
Client Services
You, the Account Director we’ve been dreaming of, will bring your knowledge and passion for managing client-agency relationships, strategic problem solving, and a team-player approach to a fastly evolving organization—and that excites you! You invite challenges, are a pro at taking the reigns, love being a quarterback for teams, and are energized by a fast-paced environment..

You have a deep knowledge of and passion for the digital space, and understand how to leverage data (read: connect the dots) to provide a compelling narrative in answering ‘why’ and ‘how’ for clients. You know enough about SEO, Paid Search, and Analytics to be dangerous.

You can create and execute high-level strategy with the best of ‘em, but you’re a ‘do-er,’ and are not afraid to roll up your sleeves in an instant to provide a project brief, contact report, or client overview to your team. You’re a pro at creating client-facing presentations, from defining the narrative to putting the pieces in place and presenting.

Your ability to see the big picture and orchestrate a team to provide informed, relevant, proactive solutions helps you create deep, long-lasting relationships among clients. And while you’re helping us to be the best at what we do, you’re equally good at (not to mention, passionate about) making everyone from the geek to the socialite feel comfortable, and for you, engaging with senior executives is a breeze.
