A hardworking, personable bunch, this laid back shop generates big work for innovative brands; all with minimal bureaucracy and a family feel. A small enough agency to run a tight ship, but big enough to boast a diverse group of creative thinkers and makers. The rules: collaborate well with clients, strive to improve daily, make work that is simple, memorable, and beautiful. This is an office where music is always playing, dogs are part of the culture, patio BBQs are the norm, and excessive imagination is a must.

Account Management: This client-facing role requires effective and professional communication between the client and agency team. Being a highly connected liaison between client and creative team is a must, as well as being able to interpret and communicate feedback. Maintaining status reports, scheduling and leading conference calls, presentation preparation, post-presentation follow-ups, etc. are just some of the daily, routine tasks. Experience in agency account management (or similar client-facing roles) is a plus; please be able to maintain and grow client relationships through excellent communication, creative thinking, and problem solving.

Project Management: Using a PM system for creating and maintaining project schedules, OOP estimates, resource allocation, checking for quality control, tracking brand style updates across many projects, and keeping internal teams on-task to meet schedules. Proactive at managing expectations of Production, Creative, Strategic and Account teams, as well as Client teams. Comfortable with fast-paced project turnarounds.

Producer: Experience as a producer in the traditional sense in a variety of tactical mediums is essential. Creative feasibility and budget awareness are also primary responsibilities. Experienced with creating budgets and tracking costs, and successful at delivering projects on time, to spec and within budget.

The Producer manages various Digital and some Print projects for new and existing retail clients. They are responsible for the work from kickoff thru final production. High-volume experience including, email, print and digital initiatives is mandatory. Having an overall understanding of 360-degree production is important, as many projects often contain several deliverables of varying media types. Candidates should have at least 3 years experience as a Producer. You should collaborate effortlessly, self-manage, and partner well with others.

Most importantly! You are a nice, normal human being that is easy to get along with and work with, as this shop has a No Ego policy.

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.

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.
