Meet Our Team

BRING OUR EXPERTS TO YOUR BUSINESS

Work With Us!

Account Manager

This role is high paced and at the heart of our organization.  Your attitude and work style will help to set the tone and culture of our team.

A mix of business coaching, design sense, and customer service is required to operate at a high level in this job. You will need to be hard on tough customers and patient with easy ones.

Ideal candidates will have worked with or in a small business before. Former business owners or marketing managers who have participated in having a website built, planning social media, or navigating marketing decisions will have a competitive edge.

MEET OUR WORK FAMILY!

Over the past 5 and a half years, we’ve been building a team.  The people who work for this company love working together. They have collaborated on 100’s of projects and added value to hundreds of businesses.

Our team is BUSY and we work hard. But we support each other, we laugh together and when we win, we celebrate together. Thank you for helping us to build this organization. We really care about you, and each other.
