DO YOU LIKE TO MAKE GREAT THINGS BETTER?

Our team has the talent to do incredible things. Which is good, because our clients expect incredible things.

We need a senior account executive who can help us deliver the incredible things we need to deliver every single day. Someone who embraces processes that work and challenges ones that don’t. Someone who sweats the details and timelines and release-to-production dates.

We are looking for non-traditional thinkers. Employees who succeed at The Variable come up with brilliant campaigns one day and breakthrough product development ideas the next. You need to be the self-starting type. You need to be funny and engaging and hard working and willing to pitch in on whatever crazy opportunity pops up next. We are small by design. So we hire carefully.

(Due to the high volume of responses, we will only be able to contact you if we move forward with your candidacy. Thank you for your interest in The Variable.)

YOU MUST

  • Be a curious individual, a fan of great creative work and be someone who is confident participating in creative reviews and leading internal work sessions. 
  • Be strategically curious and confident writing tactical creative briefs where appropriate. Plus, have a good understanding of the importance of the consumer decision journey.
  • Have demonstrated the ability to build client relationships and have the confidence to ask difficult or challenging questions. Plus, have a front-footed mindset about the client’s business, not afraid to think beyond the ask and learning how to bring proactive thinking and ideas to the clients.
