On this Architecture & Design Jobcast, brought to you by MarketScale, we sat down with Jessica Reiks of Watson, a furniture manufacturer creating user-centered, tech-ready, and future proof consoles, to discuss the open role of Sales Account Manager. Reiks said the ideal candidate is organized, interested in building solid client relationships, and always concerned about the experience.

“This role has a great impact on even more than what it seems and what meets the eye,” Reiks said. “It impacts how people work.”

The Sales Account Manager is an essential piece of the company that puts personability to work, partnering with and ensuring the long-term success of their customers. Developing lasting relationships to deliver solutions in a timely manner, the Sales Account Manager will be building cross-functional relationships with internal and external key players, striving to deliver a world-class client experience for products that are changing how we bring technology into our everyday work lives.

Jessica shared insight into the company’s culture around the water cooler, so to speak, and answered one of our signature questions — What fictional character best embodies this role — with a nod to a rom com classic.

  • Location: Palsbo, Washington
  • Hours: Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM
