About the Job

Giant Spoon is looking for a Senior Media Strategist who demonstrates strategic and creative planning skills through data and cultural driven insights for our clients. 

At Giant Spoon, we don’t issue RFPs. We encourage our clients to prioritize impact over impressions, and to reimagine what “media” means in a mobile-first video-dominated world. We believe that media partnerships - true partnerships and not just transactions - are both effective for brands and more interesting for consumers than the one-way legacy approach. 

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about the details. Qualified candidates take pleasure in getting to “do it all” at Giant Spoon, supporting on projects that blur the lines between media, strategy, intelligence and creative. Candidates bring foundational experience in how the world of media operates, and have the opportunity to contribute to creative media programs. They should be prepared to get their hands dirty in all stages of the process, acting as a utility player to provide support to the broader team. 

The Ideal candidate is constantly looking for ways to make operations more efficient, opportunities to improve the model or framework they are working with. Someone who will network with partners far and wide, from corporations to startups, hungry for the next opportunity to learn and grow.
