Assistant Account Executive

There are plenty of other agencies around that you can work for, with or at. Some better known than others. Some more successful than others. Each one a product of its own culture. Or lack thereof. What makes Partners & Simons different, and we believe special, goes back to Tom Simon’s original vision: A profitable community of smart marketing professionals built on the pillars of humanity, creativity, efficiency and results.

Notice how humanity comes first. We strongly believe that’s what makes the next three possible. It’s our secret sauce. We’re a group of self-motivated marketing problem solvers who also put high value on quality of life. We’ve come to Partners & Simons to work in a high-performance environment that’s more consistent with our individual values. In our work with financial services and healthcare brands, we specialize in helping people make the most important decisions in their lives: those related to their physical health and their financial health. We see it as an awesome responsibility. And we do it through a full range of services including marketing, technology, creative, media, and analytics. Together with a big dose of camaraderie and fun. We enjoy onsite yoga/pilates, engage in friendly competition with our Fitbits, eat lunch together on Fridays, and plan Creative Nights Out in and around the Innovation District. If you’re looking to work in a fun, creative environment that inspires innovative thinking, read on.
