Here’s the type of person we’re looking for:

You think digital first. You’ve accepted the fact that the internet is here to stay. Facebook, Twitter, Email, CPM, CRM, CTR, CPA are not foreign concepts to you. In fact, they’re your jam and putting them together in a full-scale, multi-platform digital campaign is what you do.

You see the big picture. You like to think about strategy and focus on the cohesiveness of an online campaign. Connecting the dots is what you thrive on. Integrating email marketing, online advertising, social networks, and your website just seems right.

You like to solve problems. You don’t shy away from a challenge and you thrive in the unknown. Our clients come in all shapes and sizes and each of their challenges is unique. You should be prepared to come to work everyday ready to tackle the next big thing.

You like to stay organized. You’ll be juggling different parts of comprehensive digital strategies for top-tier political clients. Keeping yourself organized internally while managing clients is a crucial aspect to providing proactive and exceptional work for our political campaigns.

Yolo. We want to invest in a culture. Creativity is best nurtured in a relaxed, collaborative environment with lots of beef jerky, espresso, and blazing fast Wi-Fi. We can provide that. Feel free to wear a snuggie to the office. Just produce and be a team player.
