Why this role?

Your experiences as a Senior Associate would be designed to help you develop a broad range of relevant skills, and prepare you for a potential transition to a role as an Engagement Manager. In addition to regular team training sessions, you would be assigned a mentor to work with you on building specific skills and capabilities aligned to pre-defined professional development goals.

Three beliefs underpin our culture & frame the type of people who excel at frog:

• Being a challenger brand: a home for rebels and disruptors who want to do their best work
