Account Manager

Reading, Berkshire


Edge by Ascential (formerly Brand View) is busy disrupting the world of price, promotions, eCommerce, nutrition and market research. This is just the start – we’ve always got new projects on the go that need smart, creative minds to spark them into life.

Our award-winning, much-acclaimed office might look like a playground, complete with DJ booth, pool table, Xbox and beer tap, but it’s designed to be a fun, inspiring and dynamic place to work. Best of all, it’s brimming with brilliant people.

Our goals have always been the same: Have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning.

We’re always on the lookout for ambitious and creative people to join our team. But isn’t everyone? Potential Edge employees need something extra. A quirky edge, a positive attitude and a driving passion to bring something unique to our party. It’s hard to define but you’ll know if you’ve got it – and so will we.
