Job Description

We are looking for a new Account Director for our office in Chicago. If you’re up for the challenge you have a chance to join us in the pursuit of becoming the leading digital agency internationally. We are well underway with offices worldwide and North America. But there is still work to be done. Lots of work!

The Job

You will work closely with an international portfolio of clients. Working with our VP Business Development, you’ll define go-to-market strategies and tactics for each client. You’ll deal with our clients on a daily basis, presenting digital strategies, projects and ideas and taking their responses back to our digital team behind thescenes.

You will be a digital advisor and consultant. Our goal is to give our clients a competitive advantage by designing digital platforms that deliver tangible results. You will work to make this happen, melding the best of creativity and technology to help our clients drive stronger brand-customer relationships in this increasingly complexworld.

You will be a digital matchmaker. You will work with potential clients and help them see why they need us. And you will work with our team to figure out how we can help potential clients. Think of it as digital matchmaking – finding the clients and Valtech services that are perfectly suited for each other.

You will know our clients, inside and out. You know their market, their business conditions, their competitors and you can suggest projects that can help them. You are quick to identify new stakeholders within existing clients, talk to them, get to know them and make them fall in love with what we do.

You will know our teams. One of your primary responsibilities is to make sure that opportunities fall within the comfort zone of our delivery teams. Yet you also have an eye for how to develop our teams, constantly pushing them by giving them tasks that are a bit beyond what they’ve done before. In other words, we’re looking to break boundaries in manageable doses. That’s how we develop ourselves and our client(s) and remain competitive. Your role will be to help us do that.


The Ideal Candidate

You know digital.You follow all the right people, watch the TED talks, listen to the podcasts, attend the conferences and are up-to-speed on the latest developments in this rapidly evolving industry. You’re that annoying person that always seems to know about the latest tech and trends first and you’re not shy about letting everyone know you know. You have a knowledge of customer experience management platforms like Sitecore, Episerver, and Adobe Experience Manager. You have the ability to identify opportunities to address client needs by leveraging the right strategy and technology to add the mostvalue.

You’ve got experience. We expect that you’ve worked with client engagement within the digital sphere for the past several years.

You’re a team player. You can work both internally and externally with multidisciplinary teams. You can move freely in and out of different cultures, and liaise with all levels of an organization.

You’re a born presenter. This job requires a lot of face time with clients. You need to be comfortable leading meetings, making phone calls, giving presentations and interacting with clients on a daily basis.

You’re a juggler. We balance a lot of projects at one time. You need to thrive in a fast-paced environment, be able to multi-task and prioritize correctly, and know when to ask for guidance.

You don’t mind getting out from behind your desk. You’ll be based at our Toronto office, but as we’re part of an international group, you’ll also be collaborating with our offices around the world. So bring your passport – some travelling can be expected.

Here’s what it’s like to work for us:

We’re advisors, visionaries, creative and techies…with an agency mindset. We believe in working together, and that the best results come when we pool our knowledge and brainstorm the right solution for our customers.

We embrace all things digital. Our ambition is to become global leader in the digital space. No more, no less. Our customers look to us to help them succeed in the digital landscape. We deliver work that makes them the leaders in their industries, based on a thorough understanding of their business and a close collaboration with their employees.

We talk to each other. We work in an open environment, with business developers, web technologists, strategists and creatives sitting side-by-side, pooling their collective wisdom in order to come up with the best solution for our clients.

We have fun. We don’t believe in boredom. We do work hard, and we put in the hours we need to get the job done, but we also have a vibrant, dynamic atmosphere with passionate colleagues who enjoy what they do.

We love our clients. Seriously! They are the reason why we are here. And why wouldn’t we? We are working with some of the biggest and most interesting brands in the world, along with a lot of other companies that all have great ambition to succeed in the digital space.

We’re looking ahead. We are driven by a visionary mindset, and that means there is plenty of room for initiative and for talented people to shape who we are tomorrow.

Up for the challenge? Then we will be more than happy to hear from you. We have on-going interviews so send your application as soon as possible via the apply button.
