Account Manager

We’re on the hunt…RedRhino is growing and we are looking for a wildly talented and organized Rhino to join the crash.

You know a little bit about everything from design to digital marketing, but you’re a pro in bringing all that together. You’re practical and creative, always looking for new solutions to engage our clients and their customers. You are extremely detail-oriented, a great communicator, a creative problem-solver and thrive on deadlines in a fast-paced environment.
