Brand Strategist

Salt Branding is looking for a mid-weight strategist to join the team in San Francisco. That means someone with up to five years experience ideally working in a clear brand strategy role for an established agency, consultancy or client.

You will have had direct experience in brand positioning, architecture, customer behaviors and insights. Additionally, you will work directly with the creative team to help turn that strategy into exceptional creative work that drives business results. In a perfect world you will be a good writer and capable of translating strategy into clear communications and messaging.

We are a practical firm that wants strategists to work closely with our clients and our internal teams to deliver meaningful work. Vision is important, but execution is imperative.

Oh – and a lot of our work is B2B, not just B2C. So, we tackle the hard stuff – not just the fun, cool consumer brands.

Responsibilities & Expectations

  • Ability to quickly understand a client’s business strategy, operations and go-to-market realities.
  • Capability to work directly with clients from the CEO to the hands-on Brand Teams within both large and small organizations, understanding there’s a time to fall on your sword and to not.
  • Great strategic thinking to develop incisive brand strategies (in conjunction with our senior team and client leads), that will inform business organization and behavior.
  • Actually enjoy producing presentations or experiences to communicate ideas and insights in a clear, articulate and inspiring way.
  • Openly collaborate with our internal team and external partners to create real-world solutions that exceed expectations, not budgets.

Qualifications and Experience

  • Common sense.
  • Relevant qualifications to demonstrate subject-matter expertise.
  • A flexibility to work the hours and schedule required to get the job done, including any travel.
  • The flexibility to work in the programs or applications our clients expect – PowerPoint, Google Docs, SmartSheets, etc.
  • A collaborative, positive attitude that makes working with you a pleasure.


  • Great health, dental and vision care – because you need to take care of yourself.
  • 401K matching plans – you might not work here the rest of your life, but it’s good to plan ahead.
  • Flexible spending, transit and parking accounts – ways to help you save money every day.
  • Decent vacation and time-off – we all need to recharge the batteries.
  • Community service time – giving back is important.
