Who We’re Seeking:

  • Understand the key trends that drive consumer behavior and affect the way that brands communicate – always living at the intersection of brand, culture, and creativity
  • Develop emotive creative briefs to inspire customer-led, idea-centric strategies that creative teams can use to develop compelling work across three key areas: 1. Experiences (e.g. Cars, Travel, etc.), 2. Winner and 3. Impact (e.g. Charities, Nonprofits, etc.). 
  • Examine all projects through an inclusive lens to reflect a profoundly diverse customer
  • Collaborate cross-functionally and coordinate marketing campaign efforts with various internal teams and stakeholders
  • Lead team brainstorms that efficiently produce breakthrough insights and ideas

  • Ability to discern customer insights and “human truths” from mounds of data
  • Passion and empathy for the customer’s perspective, and ability to uncover “what’s in it for the customer?”
  • Hands-on self-starter accustomed to prioritization, while working under pressure in a constantly evolving environment
  • Excellent communication, collaboration and planning skills with meticulous attention to detail
  • Experience ideating, producing and/or pitching multi-platform programs in partnership with creative counterparts
  • Love/hate relationship (but more love) building compelling Google Slides presentations

What to Expect:

  • Competitive salary and benefits including attractive equity package. 
  • We're committed to putting the health of our employees first and are currently working from home with a stipend for office setup, continuation of company events (virtual), and more.
