The PITCH

Well, now we’re looking for someone who lives and breathes social media even more than us. Do you know all of the latest trends? Memes? And TikToks? Maybe you’ve dabbled in the world of influencers?

Thrive in a role where you can bring ideas to life on billions of screens? Cool. Then let’s talk.

This exciting opportunity of a full-time role based in Singapore will allow you to lead a team of strategists and collaborate with a bunch of strat experts across apac. You will lead and drive our strategy expertise and be the “strategic brain” who will guide us for all things APAC.

Are you based in Singapore? Geeking the social media world in APAC digital space for eight plus years now? Are you inspiring with a can-do attitude? Do you wanna deep dive into the world of media and creative advertising agency? If yes, we could be meant to be -----so keep reading!

Here’s where you come in.

Our growing strategy team is looking forward to collaborating with a “people first” Strategy Director to lead multiple exciting accounts in our growing APAC market. This is a full-time role based in Singapore with a reporting role to the Head of Strategy and Insights.

You’re a problem solver at heart and insanely curious about people, culture and technology. Most of all, you like to get your hands dirty, are obsessed with researching & finding interesting things that are hidden from sight (even in the seemingly most mundane of places) and adept at translating your findings into compelling creative briefs, enjoy partnering with teams to see your work through from research to execution, and communicate your work with passion and conviction. We like to work with “big thinkers yet hands-on in execution”.

As a team, we’re collaborative and come from diverse backgrounds. We value creativity in research, and an outside-in perspective when it comes to inspiration, strategic frameworks and problem-solving. Technology has fundamentally changed the way we interact with others and the world around us, and we geek out about understanding behaviors in context, instead of probing humans in a petri dish.

You would be leading a team of talented strategists, social listening analysts, and community experts. As such, there are many hats you’d have to wear from day 1. You would need to conduct research, write briefs, guide work, pitch to clients - really anything and everything it takes to get the job done and deliver fantastic, big, bold, beautiful work.

Our environment (and pace) feels much more like a start-up than most agencies you might be used to. Hopefully that, and the opportunity to collaborate with the talented and enthusiastic crew, work with big brands excites you, as it does us. We can’t wait to meet you.

What you should know about VaynerMedia

Think “lab” and not “agency”. We get excited about solving business problems, not creating advertising for the sake of making advertising. Our entrepreneurship DNA runs deep. We’re willing to break rules, try new things, and test hypotheses if it means better understanding our craft. It’s fun!
