Job Description

We are seeking an energetic individual who brings excellent communication and organizational skills to join our customer service and sales team. As an account manager, you’ll be the main liaison between print clients and Firespring team members. We’re looking for someone that thrives in a fast-paced environment. Balance is one of your key characteristics as you anticipate and manage client needs while also encouraging team members to produce work that exceeds client expectations. A good day for you is one in which you’ve been rushing around moving mountains. You laugh in the face of obstacles because you’re always up for the challenge, and let’s face it, you totally love it. 

You have mad skills in the detail department. Not that run-of-the-mill “I’m detail oriented” blah blah blah. You do details on top of details as if it’s nobody’s business, AND YOU LIKE IT.

In short, you above-all recognize and are willing to go the extra mile to provide the very best customer service experience to our clients. Period.
