At Lightburn, we thrive on collaboration, and our common goal of "making digital simple" shines through in everything we do. We're always hard at work crafting smart and thoughtful digital experiences for our clients, who range from small local startups to large, well-known names in business.
We are seeking a Client Strategist to play a critical role in building relationships with significant clients. Part business development, part account service, this person will help shape our overall approach with new and existing clients. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in digital strategy and deeply committed to our clients’ overall success.
This role will partner with other members of the team to pitch our services and expertise to new clients, as well as provide the production team with clear strategic briefs that inspire and enable our best work.
The client strategist is also responsible for seeking out and nurturing new opportunities with existing clients. They will work closely with our experienced project management team to develop increased engagement with key accounts.
Please note: while most of our team is working remotely based on local health department guidelines, the Lightburn office is located in Milwaukee. We are currently seeking candidates based in Southeastern Wisconsin.
