At WDG, we are constantly on the lookout for top-tier candidates who have the potential to excel in our dynamic and innovative team. While we may not be actively hiring for Strategists at this time, we encourage interested individuals to submit an application so we can get to know you and keep your information on file for future opportunities.
Our Strategy and Sales teams are looking for experienced, detail-oriented, website strategists who are collaborative, curious, and passionate.
At WDG our strategists are, “here to hear.” The strategist anchors the discovery phase, surfaces data driven insights and positions project directives that focus decision making for subsequent production teams. They become immersed in our client’s world by reading, facilitating discussion and conducting research. They strive to understand business goals and to discern the needs of digital audiences — in order to strategize user centered websites.
The deliverables of the Senior Web Strategist influence the user interface and the content management system as there are implications for content strategy and information architecture. They distill complex business requirements into meaningful next steps, informative diagrams and foundational wireframes. Senior Web Strategists are client-facing and must lead an informed approach for purposeful website-framework design, implementation and evolution.
Senior web strategists investigate emerging trends to confidently advise our clients on proven best practices as well as innovative approaches. They are also expected to influence our approach to sales engagements by contextualizing WDG opportunities within prospective digital transformations.
