Overview

Account Coordinator

 

DEG is seeking an Account Coordinator to support the Account Service team.  The Account Coordinator provides administrative and coordination support to the account group for activities related to approved projects and programs.  This is a hands-on role writing creative briefs, project summaries, conducting research, working with clients, and creating timelines. 

 

Our Account Coordinators are client facing, and we give them the ability to take charge of smaller accounts they are personally responsible for, but at the same time, will collaborate with directors and managers on major accounts. This is a great opportunity to learn the difference in managing very large accounts verses smaller accounts, and gives both a front-end and back-end perspective of how to manage many different types of accounts. Account Coordinators are given the latitude to think of new ways to make our clients more money and improve on their marketing. Account Coordinators work with several departments here at DEG, giving them insight into many of our disciplines.

 

Our highly entrepreneurial, collaborative, and dynamic environment is the perfect place for smart, motivated people to make an impact. With competitive benefits and a dedication to work-life balance, we are also a great place to come work.

Responsibilities

  • Work on a broad range of projects including website development, interactive, social and writing.
  • Collaborate with Account Manager and Account Director to generate and implement strategic marketing initiatives.
  • Create and manage project timelines for clients.
  • Communicate client expectations to internal teams and maintain relevant client internal documents/files.
  • Document meeting notes on clients’ meetings during all phases of project.
  • Review and analyze material relative to client needs including consumer research data, industry trends, and competitive analysis.
  • Focus on tactical execution and secondary research.
  • Proactively manage client relationship via daily communication and travel.
  • Act as a resource for the Account Service team to help identify inefficiencies within the department. 
  • Serve as a point of contact and information resource for external and internal clients. Stay up-to-date on processes, time lines, as well as facilitate internal client meetings.
  • Manage project and meeting summaries, ensuring projects progress in a timely matter.
  • Responsible for working with the client and internal teams to complete accurate monthly billing.
  • Update client database, maintain filing, and verify contact data for prospective clients.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree in advertising, marketing, computer science, general business, or related field.
  • 1 year experience in account management in the interactive marketing/advertising or consulting environment preferred.
  • Experience in documentation and business planning.
  • Excellent interpersonal, writing, project management, and research skills.
  • Demonstrated resourcefulness, strong work ethic, attention to detail and self-motivation.
  • Positive, optimistic, and solution-oriented attitude.
  • Capacity and willingness to rapidly adapt, thrive, and multi-task in a highly dynamic workplace.

About DEG

DEG creates smart digital marketing, commerce, and collaboration strategies that empower organizations to amplify their competitive advantages and achieve their objectives. We use our expertise to impact the trajectory of business by crafting innovative approaches that employ digital direct marketing and eCRM, social media, integrated e-commerce, web content management, enterprise collaboration, and mobile development—all driven and supported by analytics, process management, technological prowess, and award-winning creative.

 

Since we opened our doors in 1999, one of our most important goals has been to create a culture in which excellence is recognized, individualism is encouraged, and the workplace is vibrant. We think we’ve accomplished that, and the fact that DEG has been repeatedly recognized as one of the area’s “Best Places to Work” backs that up.

But how have we done it? It starts with building a profitable, stable company and extending the more traditional benefits to our associates and their families, including:

  • Multiple Health Plan options (including PPO/HMO), company-paid premiums for all associates, and with no waiting period
  • Life Insurance, AD&D, and Short- and Long-Term Disability, with premium covered by DEG
  • Independent Insurance and Pre-Tax Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Optional Group Dental and Vision Plans
  • Optional 401k Retirement Savings Plan with company sponsored matching program
  • Personal Emergency Services, including travel assistance and identity theft protection
  • Bonus Plan based on company and individual performance
  • Paid Time Off (PTO) and Holidays

But just as our take on digital strategy is far from traditional, so are the benefits of hanging your hat here at DEG. Ours is a fun, energetic, casual work environment. We offer flexible schedules and collaborative, cross-disciplinary work. You have the opportunity to work with high-profile clients in myriad industries and visionary leaders and technologists in every discipline. And, of course, there’s free soda, juice, and Starbuck’s coffee in our company coffeehouse. Every Friday, feel free to join us for our weekly Beer:30.
