Want to join the team?

Great. We could use somebody like you around here.

Digital Strategist


Are you a Digital Strategist?

Do you compulsively track the reach of your vacation snapshots? Are you eager to ask the digital, creative and account teams how the digital objectives fit within the overall business objectives, because you’re actually interested in the business objectives? Do you assume everyone is as eager for regular digital and social media reporting and analytics as you are? Do you love chatting about emerging trends in the digital space—and agree “best practices” aren’t always, uh, best practices? 

To be effective, the Digital Strategist must be:

  • Excited by developing creative-focused strategy across web, social, and experiential digital projects
  • A strong communicator, clearly explaining requirements, execution and measurement to the client team
  • A collaborator, bringing ideas and working with the creative team to refine and implement
  • A partner to the media, creative, account, vendor and client teams
  • Able to find opportunities in vendor relationships and keep the team aware of new capabilities

Yes.

Consumer Insight Strategist


Are you a Consumer Insight Strategist?

Do you tend to answer a question with a question? Why? (And is “Why?” your favorite question to follow a question with?) Do you have trouble deciding if you love quantitative more or less than qualitative, but would be willing to do some research to determine the answer? When you watch TV, do you mutter, “Oh, come on, your strategy is showing” at some point during every advertising break? Are you slightly skeptical about what people say, and prefer to judge them by what they actually do? Do you find yourself explaining to friends why other friends do things—and they all go, “Ohhh, yeah, I see that” when you’re done? Do you allow a little gap when chatting casually with strangers in the doctor’s office or grocery store, then say, “What makes you say that?” (And—what makes you say that?)

To be effective, the Consumer Insight Strategist must be:

  • Skilled at analyzing and interpreting a variety of information and data.
  • Up-to-date with cultural/social trends and consumer views and attitudes. 
  • Organized and detail oriented.
  • A collaborator, not a solo act. 
  • A solid writer.
  • A creative thinker. 
  • Curious and resourceful.  

Yes.

Writer


Are you a Writer?

Have you single-handedly filled enough notebooks to deforest the Amazon? Do you have graffiti charges on your criminal record because you took it upon yourself to correct a poorly written sign? Do you have to suppress your gag reflex when someone says “utilize” instead of “use”? Can you think of a hundred different ways to sell the same product? And just as many ways to word the same idea? Do you believe a well-written ad can have no copy? 

Do you have at least 3 years of experience and a portfolio to share?

Yes.

Art Director


Are you an Art Director?

Does trite advertising make you shout loud, angry words that echo off your impeccably decorated walls? Do you know more about Adobe Creative Cloud than you do about your own family? Do you consider your annual holiday card a design opportunity? Do you collect fonts the way writers’ sweaters collect dog hair? The way that guy who was on Hoarders that one time collected rats? Have you ever sat motionless before your computer, debating the relative merits of PMS 2757 versus PMS 2767? Are you ready to shepherd an integrated advertising campaign from its first ketchup-stained napkin sketches to its final color-corrections?

Do you have at least 5 years of experience and a portfolio that includes tv, print and digital work?

Yes.

Associate Account Manager


Are you an Associate Account Manager?

Are you looking to break into advertising? Are you prepared to assist the account management team with their multiple duties? Especially when those duties entail managing projects, tracking budgets and conducting copious amounts of research? Are you prepared to fearlessly tread the razor’s edge between representing a client’s interests and advocating for your agency’s best creative work?  Do you see an ad on tv or online and question who it was intended for and why they made the choices they did?

Can you manage more than one project at the same time? Are you self-motivated? And detail-oriented? 

Yes.
