About C2Sense

Job Description

You’ll be a great fit for C2Sense if you are an exceptional communicator. You understand that storytelling is a fundamental human journey that promotes stronger connections through communication between the company and its customers.

You understand the importance of connecting with audiences on an emotional level and giving customers a unique brand experience.

In an on-line connected world, you are creative in the way you break through the noise and establish brand value. You do this by examining brands and products from a holistic perspective, by understanding target audiences and product benefits comprehensively, and by preparing comprehensive communication strategies. You are comfortable leveraging the advantages of digital marketing and are able to translate data and analytics into insights that strategically improve communication tactics in real time.
