Director of Client Partnerships – Bullhorn

Director of Client Partnerships

No one has ever had to motivate you. You wake up every morning, yearning for a challenge different from the one you conquered yesterday. You prefer clear metrics of success. You value relationships and understand how they impact business. While working for various agencies, you’ve developed, nurtured, and grown a diverse array of client relationships: large and small, prestigious and unassuming, profitable and purposeful.

And now, you are seeking change. You want to be part of a different kind of team, where values matter and the work is excellent. Maybe you don’t want to relocate, but you’re looking for that next big challenge.

You know your value. You know what you want and aren’t afraid to ask for it. You understand what it will take for you to consider a new opportunity. And you’re ready to engage in a discussion about making a change.

We are an impact branding agency. We believe in the transformative nature of language and design. And we are a B Corp. This is our 2020 impact report. Our values define us — they aren’t window dressing. We are passionate about strong design, compelling language, and building brands that can change the world.

Bullhorn was founded in 2008. We are a team of 14 designers, writers, website builders, and account managers. We have grown organically based on the quality of our work. From day one, our biggest source of new business has been referrals and word of mouth. It’s time to take the next step. We’re ready. And we are seeking a new team member to help us grow.


Salary and commission for this position will be commensurate with experience and location.


We offer employees and their families (including domestic partners, partners in a civil union, and same-sex partners) health, dental, vision, retirement benefits, paid time off, and a flexible working environment. We also provide paid parental leave for both primary and secondary caregivers. And a computer and a bicycle.
