Account Manager
August 10th, 2022

ADMINISTRATION BRANDING CONSULTATION & STRATEGY PROJECT MANAGEMENT


Job Description

The Account Manager at Matchbox is a fast-paced and detail oriented position requiring a high degree of organization and communication skill. Account Managers act as the primary point of contact for each of our clients throughout the duration of every project, and as a liaison between the client and the designers. In a nutshell, it’s the Account Managers job to ensure that projects run smoothly, on schedule and on budget.

The Account Manager is responsible for knowing the status of any and all jobs they are responsible for, and for helping the principals, designers and staff get their jobs done effectively and efficiently. In most cases, the Account Manager will have direct contact with a client throughout the process and handle much of the daily administration associated with any job. The Account Manager will assist with any client needs that do not directly relate to the creative/design aspect of the job – including scheduling, budgets, change orders, print pricing, coordinating outside vendors, etc.

In addition to their role within each project, the Account Manager will have a broad view of daily, weekly and monthly trafficking, and will establish project schedules and assign resources so that workflow and individual workloads are managed.

The Matchbox Studio is a boutique design firm, so unlike at larger agencies, this position will work on many accounts, and provide multiple opportunities to build strong and rewarding relationships with our very diverse client list. Understanding the goals of each of our clients, and working with them to identify challenges and opportunities, will give the Account Manager a chance to play a role in the success of each and every project in the shop.

At Matchbox you’ll receive:

  • A competitive salary and full benefits package
  • Opportunity to make a difference within a small, close-knit team
  • A fun creative environment working with a team collaborating on great work
  • Vacation: Matchbox has a healthy vacation policy, with employees receiving vacation days commensurate with the number of years employed. In addition to vacation days, employees have off major holidays as recognized by Matchbox, Holiday Break and Flex Fridays during the summer. These additional days constitute over two weeks of additional vacation time.

Job Responsibilities

Responsibilities Include:

  • Manage multiple client relationships
  • Internal and external project communication
  • Coordination of project documentation
  • Work through budgets with clients
  • Obtaining all necessary assets from client (logo files, copy, etc.)
  • Coordinating with outside vendors
  • Determine use of assets (which designer on what job and when)
  • Participation in Brand Strategy process

Job Qualifications

Requirements:

  • 4 year college degree
  • 1-5 years experience in project or account management
  • Agency, design firm, marketing or PR experience a plus
  • Confident and capable of juggling multiple clients and projects
  • Positive Attitude, willingness to learn and be part of a dynamic and fun team
