PLACED: Group Strategy Director, $195-225K, NYC

This funky, award-winning digital agency brings together product design, brand communications and social content to help businesses thrive. These guys are also a little weird, extremely collaborative, and sometimes communicate entirely in gifs with the account, design and technology teams. We’re now looking for sensational talent in the Brand Strategy space to round out this unique team. You know a real idea when you see one and can provide the right stimulus at the right time to tease more out of your creative partners.

There are three reasons why the strategically hungry come to this agency: to break free from thinking-by-department, to get closer to making, and to work with clients striving to recalibrate their business around digital. You will be involved in everything from unearthing and articulating the leading insight, partnering with the VP of Analytics to define a data vision, through to a shared accountability for the creative product. You’ll lead and manage your team with vision and empathy; you foster a spirit of collaboration, openness, and accountability. You can bring clarity and calm when there is chaos.

YOU:

-Grew up digital: This isn’t about spending every waking hour on Twitter. It’s about showing that you’ve played with a lot of the digital world, that you’ve experimented and learned – sometimes for work, sometimes for the sake of it.

-Can grow business for the right reasons: You thrive in a pitch but you can also patiently help clients achieve their goals and create opportunity for your team.

-Stay hands on: It’s an open-space office and most teams sit together. Your role may stretch across teams, but we need you in the work, not just around it.

-Have a range of experiences: Across different categories executing campaign work, brand building, social media and involvement in web/ product builds.

-Can work with fellow digital grown-ups: This is an eclectic mix of designers, technologists, strategists and producers. You must be an adept facilitator of ideas and insights sessions and be able to bring the best out of collaborators. We want a person who keeps the team inspired, curious, and open-minded.

-Are well versed in research techniques: An ability to get to the nub of the problem through thorough desk-bound, primary research or the latest tools.

-10+ years brand planning experience; traditional and digital. Should be comfortable with UX and branding for systems as well as content. An idea generator who has handled a masterbrand in entirety.
