  • Provide floating support for teammates on various projects as needed.
  • Provide timely project tracking and department reporting information through daily administrative tasks.
  • Remain agile to evolving processes by attending trainings, using self-serve resources, and adapting your approach accordingly.
  • Related duties as assigned.

What You Will Need:

  • Background in graphic design, editing, or publishing preferred but not required
  • Experience working in account management or traffic coordination preferred but not required
