  • Strong written and verbal communications skills
  • Exceptional organization and project management skills
  • Ability to multi-task, prioritize and meet deadlines
  • Initiative to ask questions, pick up the phone, take action and think ahead

A little more about LaunchSquad:
We care about our work. 
This approach is nothing new for us. Since forever, we've been committed to mastering our pursuits: the inverted pyramid, a left-handed lay-up, the ukulele. 
No matter what we're doing -- researching industry trends, writing a blog post, tracking campaign results -- we are dedicated and when we finish, we're satisfied. We're proud to say: that's our work. 
We care about our clients.
We immerse ourselves in our client's business, translating ideas into initiatives that resonate with audiences and stand out. 
We execute relentlessly. Because our client's goals matter, because our work has a significant impact on their businesses, because we feel compelled to deliver the best results.
We care about each other. 
We are believers in the infinite possibilities that come from collaboration and on-the-level communication with one another. If we had to choose three words to characterize our teammates, we might say: passion, courage, and integrity. 
We trust our teammates say what they mean and do what they say so we can have a life that includes lots of sleep at night.
