Strategist

At 5 Horizons, we help clients build audiences, nurture long-term relationships, and drive conversions that can take months or even years to close. It takes a special kind of visionary to craft the effective strategy required for these long, complex sales funnels.

We’re looking for the next great problem solver. A quick-thinking strategist who seeks creative solutions and uses analytical thinking to find insights in any data set. A clear communicator with a passion for details and an ability to translate strategies for a variety of audiences.

If this sounds like you, we want you to join our strategy team at 5 Horizons.
