NJI is a wildly creative and strategically disciplined design agency with offices in Washington, D.C., London, and Singapore. We work seamlessly across teams and time zones to deliver exceptional products and top-notch customer service to our clients.
We are looking for a talented and kind-hearted mythical creature, think Hippogriff, to join our global account team.

The ideal candidate is able to navigate ambiguity, anticipate client needs, and develop strong working relationships with both internal teams and external stakeholders. We value precision and creative thinking, but also expect compassion and humanity to be a the heart of each of our colleagues.
