Senior Engagement Manager.
Seattle, WA

The Senior Engagement Manager has primary responsibility for the client relationship – ensuring client needs are met, understanding those needs at a level to be a trusted advisor and strategic partner to the client, introducing new opportunities and TEAGUE offerings, and growing and deepening the client relationship. You have deep experience managing clients through the project lifecycle for digital products and services and proven experience delivering digital products from concept to production and on-going maintenance. You will be responsible for managing multiple clients and projects with a scope of $2M+, and guide teams that can range from 1 to 20 employees/contractors concurrently.  

Why We Need This Position Innovation is a pillar of TEAGUE’s success and we believe innovation is fueled by technology. Ergo, an exceptionally nimble and forward-thinking expert who lives on the digital cutting edge is essential to TEAGUE’s ability to maintain its place as an industry leader. Which is why we need someone like you, with the expertise and vision to serve as an ambassador of digital technology and show clients how to leverage it to enhance their offerings.

Who We’re Looking For You are a strong and personable leader with a passion for the digital space who knows that success is built on a foundation of great relationships, effective teamwork, excellent listening skills, superlative communication, and an innovative, solution-oriented approach. This is a multi-faceted role. This involves building and maintaining strong ties with clients and prospects; listening to their needs and delivering customized solutions; preparing teams to deliver coherent, powerful and persuasive presentations; anticipating their future needs and advising TEAGUE leadership on how to improve our offering to better serve those clients. It is up to you to translate client challenges and objectives into strategic concepts and solutions that help our clients attain their business and brand objectives.

Second, you are an evangelist in the growing digital space for TEAGUE and work closely with fellow designers to lead and build teams and promote new work through existing client relationships. You understand the complexity of designing and building websites, mobile apps and/or software experiences and are an expert at coaching stakeholders through the process. This extends to a deep understanding for how technology, platforms, and data impact the physical, digital, and functional aspects of a client’s business and a customer’s experience. You must be able to identify and select critical business areas (e.g. market research) that will add significant value to a creative product/portfolio or business problem-solving project. Finally, you’re able to effectively communicate the importance of digital functions to C-level stakeholders.

Finally, on a more strategic level, you’ll develop an effective account strategy to meet TEAGUE revenue objectives; assess new opportunities and appropriate business development investments; and support the business planning process.

Personality-wise, you have a knack for building strong relationships and are adept at presenting complex ideas in a user-friendly language and manner that encourages buy-in. You are both a big-picture visionary who is always on the lookout for better ways to do things—applying digital solutions, improving project deliverables, anticipating customer needs, overcoming challenges quickly—and a no-detail-is-too-small type who is able to juggle multiple project budgets, timelines and deliverable expectations without batting an eye. If you think you’ve got what it takes to fill these rather big shoes, we’ve got your dream job waiting for you.
