Who We’re Looking For

The CRO Strategist completes client work under the supervision of a Director of Analytics or another individual practitioner within the agency. A Strategist is expected to operate independently of a Director or individual contributor but is guided by them. They work directly with Client Partners and clients to complete their work. They require minimal direction to complete projects. They are successful if they deliver high-quality work without needing significant review from a Director or Client Partner.

Strategists will have client-facing responsibilities. Communication will be coordinated and approved by the Director or Senior Strategists.

Strategists will feature on individual accounts as instructed by the Director, and be overseen in that specialization by the Director or Senior Strategists.
