Company Description

We're a new kind of agency, built from the largest pure play CRM agency in North America and the industry-leading capabilities of Epsilon Agency to mine our data for the human insights that drive growth for our clients. At Hawkeye Agency, we believe that in order to win, and for our clients to win, data has to be at the core of how we make decisions, how we make the work, and how we go to market.

We call this approach "experience orchestration" — that is, providing a customer the best next experience, across all channels and all moments of their journey, in a way that addresses their needs and our clients’ business goals.

Please note that while each posting requires a geographical location, Hawkeye has offices in 12 U.S. cities (including San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas and NYC) and 4 offices globally (Toronto, London, Dublin, Bangalore). We call it “Hybrid at Hawkeye”, and this role can align to the candidate’s closest geographical office. Our flexible geographic work environment enables our organization to be agile, move at the speed of culture and build Connections Designed to Matter®.
