Employees can work remotely

Company Description

While this position is full-time remote, we’re looking for candidates that live in the U.S. This is to facilitate communication and coordination with internal teams and clients.

The Digital Ring isn’t your average marketing agency. We’re an award-winning crew of business-minded strategists, creatives, and developers. We work with clients big and small — across a wide range of industries — offering web design & development, SEO, content marketing & copywriting, branding, paid digital advertising, and more.

When we partner with a client, we become a seamless extension of their team. We get to know their company and their customer via an in-depth Discovery phase before creating and executing a carefully considered strategy to deliver a beautiful website or tailored marketing plan designed to help them reach their business goals.

While we’ve been in business for 6+ years, we still embody a “startup” mentality: we outwork the competition, we think outside the box, and we push the envelope. And all the while — we manage to have just a little bit of fun.

Job Description

Who’s the Captain of Your Team?…

In this position, you will report to the VP of Accounts.

Why This Job Matters!

Account Executives are the main point of contact and primary strategists for many of our larger and more complex clients. They’re responsible for leading clients through each phase of an approach we call the “Ringaround” (Discovery – Planning – Implementation – Optimization), as well as coordinating internal teams to accomplish each phase’s many initiatives.

While they spearhead each phase of our Ringaround process, our Account Executives’ main lift comes in the Discovery and strategic Planning phase, where they pinpoint the channels, tactics, and technology needed to drive our clients’ organizations forward. They then package their learnings, recommendations, and plan of attack into a tight, goal-oriented, full-funnel strategic plan, which they present to the client.

Account Executives at The Digital Ring see the big picture — always keeping our clients’ broader business goals in mind and creating marketing strategy to further those goals. They’re also responsible for tracking the profitability of each client and making recommendations to TDR leadership to expand/grow existing partnerships.
