Digital Associate

Position type: Full-Time

Location: Grand Rapids, MI – Hybrid remote

Salary Range: From $42,500 a year

Reports to: Digital Account Manager

We hire the best of the best and the smartest of the smart (you get the idea). It’s what allows our ‘small’ agency to accomplish some pretty big shit. By the way, ‘small’ to us means we accomplish far more than marketing agencies three or four times our size, all with a fraction of the staff. Why? Because our people and our processes kick some serious ass.

You ready to join the team?

As 8THIRTYFOUR’s digital associate, you’ll be responsible for building and managing digital campaigns, completing routine website edits and maintenance, creating digital strategies, and more. You need to be comfortable pushing back on clients and team when necessary to maintain accountability. We don’t pass the monkey here.

You’re a jack of all trades, you are a strategist, writer, podcaster, blogger, digital wiz, cat herder and time management ninja. If you’re not organized and creative, no need to apply. If you take yourself too seriously, you’ll have a hard time participating in our office water gun fights or yearly retreats.

Responsibilities

You gotta be able to do all the things.

  • Digital Marketing: You gotta know the Google. We are a digital firm and this position loves digital advertising. Search, Display, Meta—you get the idea. You know your shit. You’re up to date on all the changes Alphabet and Zuckerberg throw our way.

You’ll need to be confident on the back end of a site, from editing pages to updating the base platform, and more. We don’t expect you to be fluent in HTML, JS, or CSS, but familiarity is a plus!
  • Social Media: Mark Zuckerburg has nothing on you. You love social media, and think strategically when writing, researching and drafting compelling content while executing successful social advertising campaigns.

  • Strategy: We have a tried-and-true strategy process; it’s been written about in books (it was our book). You’ll help research, analyze and develop client digital strategies then turn around and implement the hell out of them. You also need to be able to think about everything strategically. Yes, we really mean everything. This skill comes in handy when have our team Werewolf games (Google it).
