Motive is looking for more great talent!

Do you have 2-4 years experience in client service? Have you worked on an array of initiatives from digital, to print, to video, to promotional programs? Do you know how to distill client needs into an actionable project brief? Can you work effectively with design and development teams to build sites that improve usability and achieve performance objectives? Can you keep creative, development, and account teams informed, motivated and inspired as you take projects from inception to completion—often on short timelines? Do you thrive in an environment where you balance multiple projects at a time? If you answered yes to all (yes, all) of the above, you may have what we are looking for in an account executive.

What’s harder to translate into words is the list of intangible qualities that will make you a success at this agency. Working at Motive requires a get-up-and-go mentality that is unwavering. Being a part of the Motive team means adapting to a lifestyle; it means upending traditional practices for unique approaches, gnashing industry norms with sharp, innovative teeth, and reinventing the way that things are ‘supposed’ to be done. If you belong in this space, you know it. If you know it, by all means, bring it; we’d love to hear your story.
