Lift is Hiring a Strategist

By Thorren Koopmans on July 21, 2015

The Gig

We’re looking for someone who loves to solve problems. As a strategist at Lift, you’ll be working to understand our clients and what they really want to accomplish. Most of the work we do is online, which requires a deep understanding of and curiosity about the connected, digital world. You’ll experience a wide variety of opportunities to share your expertise and to learn and grow from others in the organization as well as from our clients and collaborators.

About Lift

Lift is an experienced team known for our ability to solve real problems, our attention to detail, our love of delivering great design, and our approach to understanding user needs and the significance of great user experience. We recognize the importance of having a digital presence, which is why most of our work is delivered on digital channels. We also recognize  that the right solution may take us to something that we (and in many cases others) haven’t done before…and we embrace the challenge!

Our work covers a wide range of sectors from tech related start-ups and online retail to non-profit and municipalities with clients spanning the globe. We’re a tight-knit group working out of a great space in Edmonton’s Old Strathcona neighborhood, Alberta. For more about us, visit our http://www.liftinteractive.com/studio/, or give us a call at 780-426-1176.

Compensation

Our team is made up of some of the best in the business. We strive to have our compensation reflect that reality. We’ll negotiate a fair wage based on your experience and ability. Lift also offers a great benefit package and the option to participate in an RSP matching program.

You’ll also get to play Foosball every day (some things you just can’t put a price on).

Requirements

It’s been said once, but cannot be overstated - You are a problem solver. Experience with project management, web analytics, SEO, content strategy and marketing are a must. Knowledge of business model generation, value proposition design, user centered design and/or lean startup methodologies will be a definite asset.

You’ve got a degree and you’re proud of your accomplishment. You’re eager to learn (always) and have gone way beyond formal education in establishing your knowledge base.
