Vital is looking for an organized and energetic digital marketing specialist who is eager to jump in and learn all the ins and outs of working at a fun, fast-paced creative and digital marketing agency.

As a digital marketing specialist, you will be scoping out digital marketing projects, conducting keyword research, competitor research, and assisting with digital marketing strategy for our clients. Your goal is to build strategies and scope projects that will generate more traffic, more leads, and more revenue for our clients.

Our digital marketing specialists work directly with marketing coordinators, account managers, and project managers to scope and plan projects that will help our clients meet their goals. This could be anything from:
