Do You Have What it Takes to be the Next DOer?

Many job postings will list that they are looking for a “rock star”. Not us, we’ll leave the rock star posturing to the Mick Jagger’s of the world and instead tell you that what we are looking for is an innovative, forward thinking communicator that can be the voice of our customers and also play a mean game of foosball. That’s right, Digital Operative is looking for an Account Manager that can embrace our company culture, manage strategic and tactical initiatives amongst cross-functional teams, manage client satisfaction and ultimately help our clients expand their businesses. The Account Manager will have the ability to read between the lines and ensure that there is a consistent, clear path of communication between the client and the teams within the agency.

We are not just looking for another cog in a wheel but instead a team member who wants to enjoy a good work/life balance, work with great people, and have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of client projects from strategy to launch. Oh, and if you hate flex schedules, monthly team events, bagel Friday’s, an unlimited vacation policy, a casual work environment and quarterly chair massage events, then this probably isn’t the company for you. But if you like a progressive culture, hard work, and a creative atmosphere then read on for the finer details and apply today.
