RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Project Lead on the Trilogy Interactive strategic services team, your job is to build successful relationships with our clients and guide an internal team to execute exceptional work. You'll draw on your strong experience with digital marketing campaigns to help our clients achieve their goals.

To accomplish that, our Project Leads:

  • Own client relationships and communications including leadership on calls and memo drafting
  • Manage an internal team's day-to-day workload and long-term growth
  • Oversee content development -- including email, advertising, social media, and multimedia content -- production, reporting, and optimization of clients' campaign plans. Provide final internal approval for all client deliverables
  • Collaborate with Trilogy's design and development team on client interactive projects
  • Research and implement new digital advertising, testing, and marketing strategies and tactics
  • Leverage relationships for business development, participate in marketing and proposal development, and represent Trilogy at industry conferences

REQUIRED SKILLS

  • You are organized: You find pleasure in guiding multiple people through dozens of tasks and assignments at once without ever missing a beat, and enjoy developing systems to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks
  • You love building relationships: Your communications in person or by phone and email aren't just about the next task, but also about growing a longterm rapport with clients, partners, and fellow team members 
  • You've got a political gut: Clients trust you because they know you get it -- the politics, the context, the positions, and the issues that drive them 
  • You are curious: What's the newest digital organizing trend? How can we use today's news in our work? What's going on in a client's community? 
  • You are a leader: You take an interest in the personal and professional growth of your fellow team members
