We are turning the old, channel-driven marketing paradigm inside-out with a focus on the customer first and working with our clients to build and orchestrate engagement strategies that strengthen, expand and enhance their relationships with their customers. We have offices in New York City and Portland, OR, and if you want to know more, read on.

Cultural Fit

We are looking for people who are willing to come to an early-stage start-up to help us build something truly special, learn continuously, and have fun along the way. This is an environment for A-players who inherently believe that real-time, cross-channel customer experiences are the inevitable future of marketing. The ideal employee must display Actable’s core values on a daily basis:

  • We act with integrity, always. We are sincere and honest with our clients and with each other.
  • We are relentlessly curious. We like to ask, “why,” we love to learn, and we are never satisfied with “good enough.”
  • We love to innovate. We build things and invent solutions and products that our clients need.
  • We focus on results, and continuous improvement. We drive incremental revenue for our clients on an ongoing basis.
  • We collaborate. We share, teach and learn together. We have a ton of fun along the journey.

Additionally, since we are spread between locations and travel frequently, candidates must be comfortable in a high-collaboration virtual environment. Actable has clear guidelines for our expectations in this area. Note, this position is located in Portland, OR but NYC may be suitable alternatives for the right candidate. Actable will offer an attractive compensation package of base salary, profit sharing, and medical /dental/ vision benefits.
