Our clients require deep insights on their target audiences, to help them better product ideate, product develop and brand. We help make heroes of our clients and aid them in making dozens of product development and marketing decisions!

What is an Associate Account Executive at GutCheck?

This is a pure "Hunter/New Business" role. You will be given a territory, and it is up to you to break into companies and be able to get in front of the right decision makers while we continue our acceleration into currently established markets & verticals. You will have at least one year of selling new business under your belt and are looking to take your career to the next level.

  • You need to be able to use clear, collaborative communication to establish goals, set expectations & deliver results
  • You will need to execute and iterate against the strategic plan to achieve sales targets and expand the company’s customer base
  • You will need to use data and metric analysis to evaluate business, drive strategy and measure results

You will be working side by side with everyone and be able to live by and champion our cultural values of Team, Educated Opinion, Economic Thinking, Intellectual Honesty, and Trust.

If you feel this role is right for you, or it's the right next move in your career, we would love to hear from you!

An Insider's view of GutCheck

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a "no door" policy. There are no offices, so I and others can be accessible. On a proactive basis, I spend a lot of non-meeting time in the break room, so I can have a better sense of how things are going, and I can have spontaneous conversations with my colleagues. AMA sessions along with ad hoc 1 on 1s are a big part of our culture.

Additional Perks + Benefits

Everyone has a seat at the table, both in the boardroom and in our kitchen. Our close-knit culture is fostered by an open concept office space with a 360 view of upper downtown and the Rocky Mountains. Every day new friendships are formed over conversations while grabbing a Bubly in the fridge or during our run club’s weekly jaunt around town. We know people need to stay fueled physically and mentally, so our kitchen is always stocked with healthy drinks and snacks to squash any mid-afternoon hangriness. For trivia buffs, our Research team heads up a daily contest.

GutCheck celebrates the personal and professional aspects of life by treating our team as adults and letting them determine how they are most productive. Our network is completely accessible whether you chose to work remotely, stand at a desk or relax on the comfy couches in the nooks around our office. A/V conferencing access for all meetings means you can avoid the traffic and still contribute to your team from your living room, favorite coffee shop, or in the drop-off zone at your kid’s school. Cool isn’t something GutCheck strives to accomplish, it is something we have built into our Give-A-Shit culture through people who come to work and are 100% themselves.
