Our fun, fast-paced ad agency just parsed the numbers and we need a well-practiced data master to fill a contract CRM/Marketing Automation Specialist role. Understanding you may have other gigs, workload can be flexible based on availability. This role is welcome to join the team in offices, work remote, or a hybrid of the two.

We’re building a list of candidates who would self-segment themselves as diligent, disciplined and detail-oriented. We’ll then overlay that list with the psychographic profile of a ‘Data Wizard’ to pinpoint our top prospects: People who are genuinely geeked out by how digital experiences and data integration are changing the shape of marketing.
