Hold up. What’s Red Circle?

Red Circle is a mid-sized full-service advertising agency with over 17 years of experience in the gaming and hospitality industries. Our core business is casino marketing, and we’ve worked with more than 85 casinos, in addition to a diverse roster of other clients. Our vision is to be the most data-driven, results-oriented hospitality experts in North America. We give our clients a full circle experience, from data-driven insights all the way to breakthrough creative executions.
In 2015, Red Circle was recognized as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine and one of the Success Stories of the Year by Twin Cities Business. Add in free snacks, an office across from Target Field and a bunch of friendly, “can-do” people who will welcome your talents, as well as your inner-weird, and you’ve pretty much got it.

So what do I do as a Red Circle Account Exec?

You are the day-to-day contact for your clients. You are responsible for projects happening on time, and on budget. You prioritize, manage multiple projects and wear many hats — including an official Red Circle kickball team if you so choose — in a fast-paced environment. You also have top-level knowledge of what’s developing within your clients’ industry, as well as the advertising industry. You share expertise and viewpoints, becoming a trusted source of information. Fun, positive, and self-motivated are words that you would use to describe yourself.
