Job Description

Who We Are

Creative Theory Agency is a full-service creative agency focused on cultural moments at the intersection of commerce and community. As an agency, we’re nimble, agile, incredibly hardworking, and dedicated to the impact we can have through our work. Our teams are cross-functional and operate at an extremely high level of detail.


At Creative Theory Agency, we restore the balance by amplifying voices, and telling necessary stories that overturn common narratives. In short, we are boardroom advocates—a voice for representation and equity. From concept to execution, we help brands understand what role they play in this cultural climate, so they can add to the conversation, not the noise.


The Cultural Fit

As the Account Manager, you have proven experience in all account management responsibilities and are focused on providing strategic leadership for your assigned accounts. This role is for a strategic and growth-minded individual who knows  advertising/marketing when they see it,  while owning client-facing communications + management. You're a self-starter who is hands on and possesses an incredible work ethic.The pace of agency life doesn't intimidate you--it motivates you. You'll do what it takes to get stuff done.


And we love to see it.

  • Act as a primary day-to-day client contact across several large-scale projects
  • Inspire agency and client confidence and seek opportunities to advance the client relationship
  • Collaborate with project managers to ensure deadlines are timely


The Value You’ll Bring

  • 3+ years of experience in a account management role at an agency
  • Bachelor’s degree in marketing, communications, advertising or related field.
  • Strong project management skills to organize teams across complex projects.
  • History of successfully pitching new business opportunities to existing and potential clients
  • Experience successfully taking projects from concept through execution
  • Very organized, able to manage and prioritize a ton of things simultaneously
  • A demonstrated history of pitching ideas that have a cultural impact (not just traditional thinking)
  • Proven ability to deliver persuasive and compelling presentations to senior brand clients


What We Bring To The Table

  • A flexible work vibe (we're hybrid--2 days in the office + 3 days remote)
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Health benefits
  • The snacks are limitless in the office
  • The opportunity to work with some of the world’s most influential  brands
  • Annual agency retreats (we shut the office down + take a beat to recharge as a team)
