    WE is looking for an Account Executive to join our Seattle team to contribute to the success of a global consumer tech account. Here at WE, you’ll find purpose-driven work at an independent agency that puts people first. We’re looking for someone with a knack for building campaigns that change the ways consumers think about our clients through consumer insights, rich storytelling, and a deep understanding of the media – new and old – that real people follow.

We need someone who can hit the ground running, and turn client hunger and creative thinking into media placements that make consumers think, feel and do differently.
