Would you like to be our next Account Executive?

Imagine a job where you don’t dread going in to work everyday (probably). Imagine a job where there’s so much going on that you barely have time to look at the clock (but hopefully you still make meetings on-time). Imagine a job where your marketing expertise and project management skills will be put to the test. And imagine a job where there’s no vacation policy, free parking, free coffee, sometimes donuts, and always craft beer on-tap. Now imagine making that job your career.

The high life
Your life, as an account executive with The Quilted Squirrel. Unless you’re a man. Then it would be a man, who may or may not be wearing a dress, emerging from the car adjacent to a velvet rope.
If your imagination has been running wild for the last few minutes, you’re in luck. We’re hiring. An account executive, to be specific. As the newest member of the Quilted Squirrel team, you’ll be responsible for a lot of “things.” Those “things” include, but are not limited to, effectively managing projects and marketing campaigns, building and maintaining client relationships, acting as a liaison between clients and our (sometimes weird) creative team, conducting research, ensuring executions are aligned with strategy, and coordinating with various vendors to execute projects and campaigns. Plus, you’ll (hopefully) find satisfaction knowing that your work is directly impacting the success of the company – and hopefully that impact is positive. Here are the rest of the details: Required Skills & Experience:

  • Agency experience preferred, but not required
  • Experience developing and/or managing marketing campaigns
  • Strong decision-making ability and confidence in those decisions
  • Superb project management skills
  • A sharp eye for detail and ability to recognize great design
  • Familiarity with keyboards and telephone technology
  • Expert communicator
  • Accredited degree from an institution of higher learning
  • You know the difference between 100lb Gloss Book and 100lb Gloss Cover

Desired Qualities Include:

  • Smart
  • Resourceful
  • Cheerful
  • Thrifty
  • Obedient
  • Brave
  • Did we just describe a Boy Scout?
  • Tenacious. But not too tenacious. That might be scary.
  • Creative
  • Smart, again
  • Sense of humor

We offer:

  • Money
  • Fun clients & fun co-workers
  • Opportunity to be yourself
  • Opportunity to work independently and as part of a team (cliché, we know, but still true)
  • Beer on-tap
  • A moderately soft chair
  • An extremely hard desk. Wood, in fact.
