At DDB, we fully believe in the power of creativity to touch hearts, change minds and build brands. If this sounds like the kind of magic you want to be a part of on a daily basis, then you may be the Account Manager for us.

We are looking for an experienced Account Manager who loves the ad business. You’ll manage accounts and work as part of a team, and liaise with clients—always keeping an eye on the big picture while not losing sight of the finer details. You have 5 to 6 years of communications experience, including some with an agency, and can provide specific examples where you’ve worked on fast-paced and integrated projects.

As a key agency team member, you will be counted on to build and maintain excellent client relationships and you’re driven to deliver outstanding work and enviable results. Highly organized with great project management and problem-solving skills, you’ve executed progressively more complex campaigns that involve advertising, social and digital streams.

Come work with an amazing team that is super passionate about doing great work for great clients. You’ll build an impressive portfolio of your best work ever, and you’ll do it surrounded by some of the best people and brightest minds in the biz. Perks include professional development opportunities, competitive benefits including a creativity and fitness allowance, flex work schedule, and lots of hot dogs.
