Ideal Attributes

Can you adapt? The one constant in our industry is rapid change. That means the processes, tools, and methodologies that created last month’s success, might not be what is needed next month. So, can you adapt?

Do you love to learn? We believe a love of learning is fundamental for a successful long-term career in Digital Marketing. You’ll be expected to direct a lot of your own learning and we’ll support you with monthly “Learning Labs”, attendance to industry and local events and meet-ups.

Are You Collaborative? Managing paid search campaigns is largely about being organized and managing your own productivity. Even if you’re a left-brained marketer we would love it if you’re naturally collaborative because we’re a friendly bunch and we hope you are too.

Can You Always Do The Right Thing? Managing someone else’s money is a tremendous responsibility and PPC management is a partnership based on trust. It’s not about sending reports with good news, it’s about always doing the right thing for a client, even if they don’t understand or know what you’re doing, And sometimes that also means having courageous conversations.

Teach Us!?Part of “Learning and improving in everything we do”, is taking time to teach others around us about the latest trends, new findings, or helpful insights. The modern marketer needs to have a solid grasp on a variety of skills and technologies – and we expect you’ll be a part of that ongoing growth.

Why Work Here?

The People: At August Ash it’s mainly about the people. That understanding is important. Because even if we try to lure talented people with pinball machines and free swag, we know that after the novelty wears off, who you spend around 40 hrs of your week with, is what really matters.

The Culture: We're (slightly) counter-cultural - and we believe in a good way. You won’t find glow in the dark ping-pong tables and beer taps and you also won’t find people around you burned out from working 65 hour weeks. It’s all about a group of smart people, who are good-natured, working hard to delight customers in an industry they love.
