PLACED: Associate Director, Strategy; $120K+, 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 a curious, down-to-earth strategy lead with 8+ years experience to round out this special team. You’ll be able to show examples of how you’ve wrestled to understand business problems, to find provocative insights, and to create strategies that have ideas. You know the fundamentals of brand planning and how they can be applied to shape (or be shaped by) digital and social.

Why this shop? 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 Analytics to define a data vision, through to a shared accountability for the creative product.

What we need from YOU:

You like brands – you get excited and inspired to do good work for ambitious brands.

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.

You can tell a story – you understand narrative structure and can shape and reshape content and work to ensure that is impactful and human. You can also package and present a compelling story.

You can manage a team – you can inspire and manage a group of strategists and strategic thinkers from multiple disciplines.

You can work with fellow digital grown-ups – an eclectic mix of designers,technologists, strategists, producers and analysts.

You love this stuff – stories of innovation, trends and topics that inspires you both online and offline. We want a person who keeps the team inspired, curious and open-minded.
