Sr. Digital Strategist  – Austin, TX
Contract to hire/direct hire
*candidates must complete a background check upon offer*


The Sr. Digital Strategist will use critical thinking skills to be the reality check in the room. When marketers spin off onto tangents or developers start to over-architect, you bring everyone back to earth with a clear sense of the problem the team is trying to solve, and the requirements needed to get us there.


You pick up the ball early and help ensure that everyone knows what “done” means and which criteria we’ll use to declare victory at the end of a project. You can do this because you have a strong foundation in digital project execution, critical analysis and strategic application of marketing technologies. You’re on your way to independently leading digital marketing strategy projects.


Sr. Digital Strategist  will:

  • Support successful project execution and positive client relationships by applying critical thinking skills to the needs of our clients and their target audiences: help everyone stay aligned on the problem we’re trying to solve together.
  • Contribute digital marketing strategy expertise to client projects, producing or contributing to deliverables such as requirements documentation, strategy briefs, competitive analyses, user experience analyses, etc.
  • Partner with internal project team leaders (project manager, development manager, strategy lead, executive team, creative and technical teams) to ensure successful project execution, on time and on budget.

The Sr. Digital Strategist should have:

  • Experience in business analysis, preferably in digital marketing channel(s)
  • E-commerce Background
  • Client and Account Management Experience required
  • Digital Enterprise Background
  • Agency-type experience (e.g. marketing agency, systems integrator, consulting firm) with the production of client-facing deliverables such as requirements documentation, project briefs and/or craft (software code, visual design, UX design, content, other)
  • 7 +yrs. Professional experience leading heavy digital projects
  • Experience leveraging advanced web technology platforms to support complex digital marketing strategies.
  • Sitecore experience is a must have. (This is not a technical position, but an understanding of current web technology capabilities is key.)
  • Understanding of project management processes, and web development and design lifecycle.
  • Hands-on subject matter expertise in digital marketing craft(s) such as web development, creative design, user experience architecture or SEO preferred
