Account Manager

At A-Train Marketing, we understand that marketing is a compelling two-way conversation that invites participation. We help organizations create those conversations through creative and strategic solutions that are realistically implementable, stunningly impactful, and obsessively focused on results.

We are looking for someone as unique as we are – someone who doesn’t just like our approach, but who lives it. We operate with a sense of urgency, but we don’t accept a “good enough” mentality. We play hard and we work harder because we put our clients first. We believe in constant improvement, so we value feedback and learn from it. We’re relentless problem solvers who can work independently to figure it out, get it done, and see things through to completion. And that’s how we’ve done business for 20 years. You can find out more about us at atrainmarketing.com.
