senior account manager

join our team of digital marketers

We’re looking for a senior account manager to join our team of digital marketing experts. At Fathom, our account managers use personality and a get-it-done attitude to build meaningful partnerships with our client. Senior account managers act as the bridge between our digital marketing specialists and the main-point-of-contact for our accounts. Apart of our client services team, account managers orchestrate the collaboration between client teams and internal teams. This meaningful collaboration lets us deliver successful digital marketing programs and campaigns for clients.

Already experienced in account management, a successful senior account manager at Fathom fulfills a critical role in establishing and building client relationships. Our digital marketing account managers primarily focus on retaining and growing current clients ─ not driving new business through cold calling or lead qualification. As such, some travel is required to develop the deep relationships that make us successful.

Senior account managers act as strategic leaders for internal and external teams by creating win-win scenarios for clients and Fathom. A demonstrated ability to develop relationships, understand business needs and a proactive approach to communication helps you stand out amongst the crowd.

Every day as a senior account manager at Fathom is different. In this account management role, you will:

  • Stay current with modern marketing trends. Our clients expect us to be fluent in digital marketing, so it’s important for our team to continue learning.
  • Translate what the client needs into what we can deliver. This means setting our internal team up for success with clear documentation and task management.
  • Ensure quality work is delivered to clients, every time. While our teams have QA processes, our Account Managers strive to deliver the highest quality work.
  • Lead internal and client-facing meetings to prioritize current and upcoming projects and tasks.
  • Promptly address scope challenges and issues with clients.
  • Identify opportunities that lead to retention and growth of existing accounts.
  • Lead both tactical conversations with day-to-day contacts and strategic conversations with senior-level client personnel.
