Growth Strategist

Summary Role Description

The growth strategist works with clients to counsel, coach and advise them on remarkable marketing strategies that grow their businesses. Our clients need to get the right advice from us, and our growth strategists need to be able to deliver it — straightforward, bold and direct. That’s what we get paid for.

Specifically, this position is responsible for giving our clients a truly remarkable marketing experience from start to finish. This might mean suggesting a deeper dive with our analytics team, offering an unsolicited recommendation or talking clients through the whys behind their marketing tactics in clear, easily understandable terms. The strategist’s job is to guide clients as their marketing trainer on the implementation of their complete marketing program.

The key to being successful in this position is juggling a variety of tasks to ensure the marketing tactics deliver the expected results. Our clients pay us for our opinion; Square 2 strategists need to be confident and comfortable giving their expert perspectives, even if it makes clients uncomfortable occasionally. Our job then shifts into helping them work through the change so their company shines and their marketing drives long-term, sustainable growth.

While our main office is in the Philadelphia area, we have remote employees from across the country. Remote candidates are encouraged to apply for this position.

  • Work with prospective clients to recommend strategy and tactics for new engagements with our firm
  • Work with the creative team to ensure your clients’ messaging is delivered in consistently innovative and engaging ways


  • Strategic — develop marketing strategies (knowledge of the digital space a must, knowledge of the traditional space a plus)
  • Leadership — be a team player who knows how to coach/mentor, provide guidance to a larger team and be an effective collaborator
