The Account Manager is a critical role within the Customer Success department that partners directly with Sales to best service our advertising agency partners and execute on a variety of campaigns to meet client targets. The Account Manager is ultimately responsible for ensuring that all aspects of campaign performance are exceeding expectations while simultaneously updating, educating and building relationships with advertising clients.

Additionally, the Account Manager helps facilitate the management of all aspects of the campaign internally via the Campaign Manager, who works with our design team, the advertising operations team and Engineering team to expertly set up each campaign according to key performance indicators.
