Sr. Digital Strategist

Job description

Adpearance is a Portland-based, results-driven digital marketing agency that helps businesses to generate the most quality leads possible. We’re well known as the best in automotive and are successfully expanding to more verticals, too.

But that’s what we do. Anyone who is applying deserves to know who we are.

We are the Nerdherd. A group of people who have an innate desire to connect with something bigger than ourselves– both professionally and personally. Who love to solve problems. Who see the beauty of the mind. Who want to balance work-from-home flexibility with being part of a community. We know we’re a part of something special and want to attract curious minds to make our performance, company, and culture better. The three words our employees most frequently use to describe working at Adpearance: Welcoming. Challenging. Fun.

If that sounds like the kind of company you want to be a part of, there’s good news. We’re hiring for a Sr. Digital Strategist.

Location: NW Portland Office, Pearl District. We are a hybrid team typically working 2 days in the office and 3 days remotely.

About You

You enjoy your work, you’re good at delivering results, and you’ve got the data to prove it. Show us the stats: How you beat performance benchmarks. How you contributed to a successful team. How you won over that impossible client. We’re looking for intrinsically-motivated leaders like you to advance our thinking and make the whole team better.

The Position

As an experienced account manager with strong business acumen you will lead client conversations up to the executive level, and will pair strategy with implementation.  As a senior member of the Digital Strategist team, you’ll work with some of our largest and most complex accounts.


Account management: You will be the primary day-to-day contact with your clients. You’ll get to know your client’s business and goals to manage their services and exceed expectations.

Client communication: You will translate a deep understanding of the value of our solutions into positive action for customers. You clearly communicate service recommendations that are in alignment with best practices and are contextualizing the strategy behind them.

Service delivery: You will oversee a defined set of clients and services. You will manage and in some cases execute on account improvements, optimizations, and client-requested implementations. You are always pairing strategic excellence with the best interest of the customer.

Liaison between clients and your team: You will work with team members from developers to designers to ensure every client deliverable hits the business need.


You are business-minded. You are experienced and comfortable with strategizing with business executives about their sales goals in multiple industries.

You communicate clearly and effectively. You are just as comfortable presenting to the CEO as a Marketing Director. You understand people and they understand you, whether verbally or in writing.

You have a history of success. You’ve proven you can consistently deliver positive results. When clients are frustrated, you can pair that frustration with practical recommendations.

You are proactive. Issues are addressed before they become problems. You’ve heard the phrase, “Wow, you’re fast” more than a couple of times.  

You are organized & timely. You excel at managing your own workload. Complex projects and fluctuating workloads don’t stress you out; you already know your priorities and what to tackle first– and if you don’t, you have the confidence to ask.

You have unrelenting attention to detail. We can count on you to deliver error-free work on a consistent basis. You spot the error or data discrepancy that most people miss.

You can turn feedback into solutions. You welcome client feedback. You leverage both successes and failures to improve services and strategy.

You are a team player and are always willing to step up to the plate or provide a helping hand. Your manager can depend on you to speak up and provide feedback or share ideas in a positive and supportive manner.

Education and Experience:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in a related field or equivalent experience is required.
  • A minimum of five years related experience is required.
  • Experience with Google Ads, Google Analytics, or any other web analytics platform.
  • General knowledge of holistic Digital Advertising (Search Engine Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Video Advertising, Website, Display, etc.)

Salary Range: $65,000 – $85,000 base salary, plus performance pay
