Mother Tongue specializes in the creative translation of advertising and marketing copy.

We work with advertising agencies and end clients on a wide variety of high-profile brands.

We wish to appoint a full-time localization account manager to work out of our office in Long Beach, CA.

This position is hybrid, with a requirement of three days in the office.

We are looking for a skilled linguist with excellent English, must have professional native fluency in at least one other language, a keen eye for detail, and the multitasking abilities to thrive in a fast-moving environment, with at least 2-5 years of experience in localization project management.

Strong interpersonal skills are essential, as are a methodical approach and the ability to keep cool under pressure.

The right candidate will work on several big-name accounts connecting with advertising agency clients and direct global clients.

The main focus of the role is managing transcreation and translation projects. You will oversee work in many languages (often at the same time), and manage relationships both with clients and copywriters/translators. A good telephone manner and familiarity with modern office software are essential. Experience in CAT tools is a plus.

In addition, you will at times review and edit translations produced by our copywriters in your native language.

At Mother Tongue, all our staff are linguists. So it is important that you are absolutely fluent in English and at least one other language. Any further languages would be a bonus.

The right candidate can expect a fun, friendly, dynamic working environment and a remuneration package depending on experience.

To apply, please submit a cover letter and CV.

You must hold US citizenship, permanent residency, or a valid working visa.
