Bullhorn Impact Branding Work

Bullhorn Creative is an impact branding agency. We use language and design to create and transform purpose-driven brands. We are seeking a new team member to help us grow our portfolio of purpose-driven clients.

You are the ideal candidate for this position if you are self-motivated, if you value relationships, and understand how they positively impact business growth. You’ve developed, nurtured, and grown a diverse array of client relationships: large and small, prestigious and unassuming, profitable and purposeful.

You know what you want and aren’t afraid to ask for it. You understand what it will take for you to consider a new opportunity. And you’re ready to engage in a discussion about making a change. You want to be part of a different kind of team, where values matter and the work is excellent. Maybe you don’t want to relocate, but you’re looking for that next big challenge.

We are seeking someone who shares our values and is passionate about growing our network. Since our founding in 2008, we have grown organically based on the quality of our work.

We are an impact branding agency. We believe in the transformative nature of language and design. And we are a B Corp. This is our Impact Report. Our values define us — they aren’t window dressing. We are passionate about strong design, compelling language, and building brands that can change the world.

Benefits overview

We also provide paid parental leave for both primary and secondary caregivers. And a computer and a bicycle.

Compensation

This compensation range for this position is $60-$85,000. Salary and commission structure for this position will be commensurate with experience and location. Additionally, employees immediately qualify for quarterly bonuses up to 5% of your salary.
