About Us

Who we are defines
what we stand for

Some companies spend hundreds of hours in meetings getting stuck on what seems like a simple question, “What should our core values be?”

At Gundir, we never struggled with this question because we know that our values already exist within ourselves and just naturally emerge from our culture. So we simply flipped the question – asking not who we should be, but who we already are. When we looked into the mirror, the reflection we saw made our mission and values crystal clear.

Account Executive

Hayward, CA

Help us keep up the pace. As part of our future growth plans, we seek a motivated direct marketing account executive to help us get to the next level.

The role of Account Executive at Gunderson Direct breaks down into the following key functions:

  • Managing multi-cell, sophisticated direct marketing programs — mostly direct mail and often with a digital component. Project management skills are key.
  • Account and strategic leadership — recommending testing programs, campaign analysis, program optimization, mail plans and the like to serve and grow existing clients
  • Establishing strong client relationships — a mix of value-add service and personal relationship building
  • Motivating internal teams — you’ll provide them direction and insights so our agency delivers the highest quality work across direct marketing disciplines
  • Our work is mostly direct mail, both B2C and B2B. Since COVID, the agency’s client base has grown dramatically taking us into a variety of categories. Overall, clients cluster in broadly defined financial, technology and healthcare categories — from promising startups to household names. Digital integration with direct mail is taking on greater importance and you’ll be part of the team integrating cross-channel programs.
  • Strong communication skills are a must — general writing skills, creating briefs, developing presentations and the ability to deliver in live/online client meeting situations.
  • You’ll be joining a well-oiled machine. Gunderson Direct has been around for 17 years. We are an agency of 20 people and value teamwork across disciplines. Our account staff is top-notch and we have processes in place plus the expertise it takes to keep complex projects on track.
  • Our ideal candidate recognizes the value of collaboration and values the insights other agency departments provide. We are proud of our supportive environment and place a high value on our culture of learning and improvement. This position reports directly to the VP of Account Management, but will have informal interaction across all departments and all levels.

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • 2+ years’ direct mail project or account management, or relevant experience
  • Working knowledge of traditional and digital marketing as well as the print production process
  • Project, budget and timeline management skills
