Account Strategist

Account & Project Management – Baltimore, Maryland
Department Account & Project Management
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Entry-level

We'll come right out with it - we don't have Account Managers. At Mission, you'll have the title Account Strategist because working with an account is so much more than management. We believe every member of the team can bring their marketing prowess and strategic thinking to the table.

You:

You’re a driven individual who wants to work in a fast-paced, dynamic and creative environment. You’re looking to flex your marketing muscles by leading a project team through the creative process all while keeping your eye on the end goal. Your spirit animal is more Leslie Knope than Ron Swanson and nothing excites you more than progressing timelines and herding cats. For you, a task isn’t a problem, it’s an opportunity. You’re looking for something new and you’re about to find it. 

Us: 

We’re a collaborative, enthusiastic, creative, kooky bunch who thrive on effectiveness, results, and cold beer. From local to international, we partner with clients in the sports, arts, entertainment, education, destination, and non-profit industries and the typical client relationship is retained and well-maintained. We’re looking for our next Account Strategist who can take the start of an idea and see it all the way through with our talented team. We value passion above all; candidates must want to innovate, must be a team-player, and must leave ambivalence at the door.  

The Perks: 

You know the spiel: we offer medical, dental, and disability coverage, a retirement plan with company matching, paid time off, and the other standards. Here’s what sets us apart: education stipends and continued growth opportunities, wicked company events, paid parking at our downtown office, casual (and dog-friendly!) working environment, and more.

What will get you in the door: 

  • BA or BS in Marketing, Communications or related area preferred

  • 1+ years of combined experience in related industry. Prior experience or interest in sports marketing preferred

  • Excellent oral and written communications skills

  • Knowledge of marketing techniques

  • Exceptional interpersonal and organizational skills

  • Ability to strategize and proactively plan toward goals

  • Passion for accuracy

  • Determination to adhere to schedules

  • Love of multi-tasking

What we’ll expect: 

  • Work in collaboration with Senior Account Strategist and Associate Directors to ensure that the project details are clear and defined

  • Utilize project management system daily to define and monitor project scope, goals, tasks, timelines and resources

  • Assist with prioritizing projects on a weekly basis with the account, project management teams, and department directors

  • Monitor project progress and proactively address potential issues

  • Facilitate communication and information flow among internal project teams

  • Assist with review and testing of all work prior to delivery to the client

  • Communicate weekly with the client on project status updates

  • Develop strong relationships with internal team and clients, rooted in mutual trust and respect

  • Research, develop, define and communicate marketing strategy to both client and internal teams

  • Identify and be accountable for client success metrics

  • Manage client website(s) including facilitating maintenance and updating content when necessary

  • Other duties as assigned
