Client Services Executive Gig

Seeking arrangements with a gnarly account person

Josh Sullivan

September 7, 2023

Look, if we're being honest, we're still trying to figure this thing out. We know we're going to need to fill this Client Service position soon, but because we're so damn protective of our happy and weird little thing over here, sometimes finding just the right person can take a long time. So, we're going to have a few conversations with folks that might be interested, try and keep some momentum, and go from there. If it's a perfect fit, then great, and if not, no sweat.

Anyway, job description is below. We're probably squarely in the middle range of affordability for midwestern salary ranges. But, we have a lot of rad perks and are pretty endlessly flexible, so if you're into the vibe, let's chat.

It's not gonna be for everyone, but neither are we, and that's ok. This would be a great gig also for someone who has a bit of account executive experience, but wants to get their hands more dirty on brand strategy projects as opposed to ongoing marketing and that type of stuff. Don't think it HAS to be local, but that would probably be a perk for us.

Company Overview:

We take our bourbon neat. Hot Chicken five stars. Amps overdriven. We prefer bonfires to fire pits. Monster trucks over luxury coups. Our passions in life are the ones teachers said were a waste of time, our relatives didn’t understand, and the pastor, bless his heart, said would lead us to ruination.

We believe in working hard and playing harder. We believe in rock n’ roll. We believe the only path to a nice deep sleep is a hard day’s work and sometimes a hard day’s night. We believe in punching above our weight class. We believe in taking a blue-collar approach to the very cushy job we have of being lucky enough to draw cool stuff for even cooler people. We believe in setting goals, having a good plan, and basking in the glow of accomplishment.

We love clients who like to push buttons, get loud and have some fun doing it. We love to work. It’s what we do when we aren’t working.

Feel like we might be a good fit? Pull up a seat and pour a drink - let’s get started.
