PLACED: Integrated Producer, Print/Digital, $60-65K, NYC

Small Agency of the Year winner! (Yup, this is where you need to work.)

Fun-spirited, indie ad shop is seeking a sharp-as-a-tack Integrated Producer to join their team. This agency works in an integrated way, and that means being able to fully appreciate any and all solutions to clients’ challenges. They don’t have pre-conceived solutions, and believe each idea/solution/opportunity should be carefully considered and thought through; you’ll lead the process of doing just that.  This is a creative-led agency that gets hired by direct-model clients who need every dollar to produce a result for them, not just to create awareness.

If you are an entrepreneurial Producer looking for a rewarding challenge and the chance to build your own processes, then this is the role for you. With ownership of projects from conception to completion, you’ll manage the day to day Print/Digital production needs of various clients and supervise studio artists. An organizational guru, you have the ability to work under tight deadlines on multiple projects with shifting priorities while maintaining a positive outlook. You know that details matter, so you ensure that all work produced is technically correct, resulting in high-quality, printer-ready and web-ready files. You love process and systems, keep accurate records and manage all project budgets. Internally, you have great working relationships with Account people and Creatives alike; externally, vendors look forward to hearing from you, even when negotiating costs. You are a natural coach and leader, and can easily adapt to diverse team members and styles of work. Ideally, you have 4 years of production management experience in an advertising agency or creative department, with a focus on print production; digital production management experience is a plus. And please, be nice to be around.
