Hello! Where have you been hiding? We’re looking for diverse thinkers, tinkerers and strategic culture hackers to join our team. More specifically, we are seeking a VP, Integrated Strategy.

Our team is collectively redefining and modernizing the way our clients harness cultural intelligence, develop brand strategy, plan for attention and weaponize (not simplify) the complexities of digital media.

You are: strategic, self-motivated, extremely collaborative and insatiably curious about people, culture, communications and connections. You’re an ambidextrous ‘full-stack’ strategist - equally comfortable talking and thinking about creative and content strategy, the role for brand experience design, media implications and the new ‘rules’ for building brands in 2018 (and beyond). You like to dig into the insights and surface the most interesting things often hidden from sight. You can facilitate a killer workshop. You build persuasive narratives with strategic rationale and logic flow, and deliver them with passion and conviction.

The team is: hyper-collaborative, agile and built from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We value insight-fueled creativity, cultural anthropology, empathy and emotional intelligence in the way we build strategy. We appreciate the nuances of the new behaviors that define ‘attention’ and seek to understand motivations for behaviors in their full context. At our core, we are all culture hackers.

VaynerMedia is: Our entrepreneurship DNA runs deep. We’re willing to break rules, try new things, and test hypotheses if it means better understanding our craft. Think ‘strategic playground’, and not ‘agency’.

We can’t wait to meet you.
