WORKING AT ACM STRATEGIES

The Senior Digital Strategist is a full-time, permanent job that can be done remotely from anywhere in the United States. The Senior Digital Strategist is part of the Client Services team and reports to the Director of Client Services. This is a commission-eligible role, and candidates should be prepared to sign an exclusivity/non-compete agreement.

Our team is fully remote and located across the United States in several time zones. We typically work standard 9 AM to 5 PM business hours (based on location), but team members work a flex schedule during peak times and when rapid-response work is required, such as during the weeks leading up to a major election. Occasional travel within the U.S. will be required.

 

Our team culture is something we take tremendous pride in. We work collaboratively so our clients can rely on multiple creative perspectives and get the best possible outcome. We’re activists in our own lives — to us, this work is personal, and we care deeply about getting results. We value one another as complex people with hobbies, passions, creativity, responsibilities, and lives outside of work.

 

We highly value diversity and are committed to building an inclusive team. We strongly encourage and seek applications from folks who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. ACM Strategies provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, veteran status, disability, or parental status.

Your ability:

  • Strong project and time management skills, including the ability to juggle multiple projects and deliver on tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment
