You’re also probably wondering...

What’s the path for growth as an SEM, SEO, or Paid Social Media Manager?

We are proud to always promote from within. High-performing account managers have the opportunity to become senior managers and team leads:

  • Senior Managers are SMEs in their respective channels and are consistently praised for their strong account performance and ability to excel in cross-collaborative teams; Lead Strategists are seasoned Hawks who are trusted to take on the responsibilities of a Senior Manager while also acting as a strategic second set of eyes and sounding board for 3-4 Account Managers in their pod.

As the organization expands and we maintain strong employee retention, many team leads have gone on to become Associate Directors and Directors, helping us grow the agency to new levels.

What resources would I work with?

Designers, developers, content writers, backlinks vendors, and an analytics and conversion tracking team.

What platforms and tools does the team use?

Google Ads Editor, Google Analytics, Microsoft Ads, LinkedIn Campaign Manager, Meta Ads Manager and Pixel Helper, SEMrush, Screaming Frog, Ahrefs, SpyFu, CallRail, Google Data Studio, Google Tag Manager, Instapage, and Supermetrics, just to name a few… If it’s effective, we’re on it. If you know of something that would make us better, we’ll try it.

How will my performance be measured?

There are tangible measurements like client retention, client feedback, and account performance. We’ll also keep an eye on the intangibles, like internal activity, knowledge sharing, and going the extra mile to help fellow Hawks.

What does the onboarding process look like for a fully remote company?

  • We start with a comprehensive, 30-day Asana onboarding project covering every task from adding an email signature and setting up health insurance to learning landing page design best practices and how our ConversionIQ system works. This is in addition to consistent video meetings with a team lead who will tailor your training experience and assist you in learning internal processes for things like client tracking, deliverables, reporting, etc., and adopting new/existing projects.
  • We also stay connected through virtual all-company events and Slack channels covering a variety of interests like fantasy sports, pets, cooking, tv/movies, outdoor activities, and many more.

If everyone works remote, what hours would I be expected to work?

Local business hours. No need to wake up at 6 am on the West Coast for a 9 am East Coast meeting. We encourage and respect boundaries set on your calendar, email, and Slack.

How do billable hours and time tracking procedures work?

We prefer to empower, not micromanage. We don’t get bogged down with time tracking for billable hours. Instead, we provide transparency to account managers around client size and expected workload, to help them prioritize their work in a way that makes sense for their particular client roster.

Spread your wings

We’re looking for a few awesome people who share the same relentless drive for results.
