Notable is a strategic marketing and communications firm for B2B organizations. We specialize in brand strategy, content development, and design, and our firm is best known for our ability to make complex (often technical) companies more approachable, lovable, and sellable.
Our clients – predominantly operating in niche segments of the professional services, technology, sciences, and health care innovation sectors – lean on us to help them generate pipeline, accelerate sales, secure fundraising, and bring new offerings to market with unrivaled speed and efficiency. We achieve these outcomes through our battle-tested brand strategy and product marketing frameworks, as well as our content marketing programs that place our clients’ content in channels where their niche buyers can be reached.
As an Account Executive at Notable, you will play a key role in evangelizing our innovative approach to B2B marketing and communications and helping us convert the leads to customers who need our services. This is not just a sales role, it is an opportunity to be a part of a dynamic and passionate team that is dedicated to advancing B2B companies who are solving real problems and redefining their categories.
In this role, you will be selling an enterprise set of solutions that are at the cutting edge of the drastically evolving B2B marketing, PR, and communications industries. At Notable, we believe that “Education is the new marketing,” and that “Brands that give more, get more.” As consumers become increasingly aware of how technology companies have mishandled their data and inappropriately surveyed them in order to track their behavior and advertise to them, our team has developed a new approach to B2B marketing that reframes customer generation as a function of attraction rather than capture. Our flagship program, Brand 360, provides market education and content development at scale, helping our clients create multiple touchpoints and opportunities to be organically discovered through product-adjacent thought leadership, shifting the focus from finding customers to allowing customers to find you in their self-guided research process.
You will have the opportunity to work directly with the Head of Sales, who will provide you with invaluable experience and insight into what motivates our clients, and what sets our firm apart when working with B2B companies who are selling complex solutions, managed services, and innovative technologies to highly sophisticated buyers that ordinary marketing firms have a difficult time understanding. This role will expose you to the inside and outs of our clients' industries, providing a unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding of how B2B businesses operate and how they can be transformed through effective messaging and digitally-enabled storytelling.

Because we are human, and because there are numerous studies exploring the way human beings connect and communicate, we believe that seeing each other is a key part of building excellent relationships with co-workers and with clients. Though cameras-on is the expectation in every meeting, meeting leaders may opt to switch cameras and mics off temporarily during ideation components of a meeting or work session, as research demonstrates that while seeing each other is critical, it can also be distracting while trying to ideate.
As a global team, for some, there is a learning curve to adapting to accents of our international colleagues. Please acknowledge that your ESL colleagues are demonstrating immense commitment and respect to your culture by speaking English. Be kind and polite if something needs to be repeated. But moreso, as you’re getting adjusted, turn the captions on in Google Meets. They aren’t always accurate but they’re quite close.
