ON HOLD: Senior Strategist, $90+K; Brand Strategist, $75K; NYC

Join an agency helping ambitious brands thrive in contemporary culture, creating whatever it takes to make that happen. This proudly diverse independent agency values resourcefulness and tenacity just as much as creativity and intelligence. They’re unapologetically ambitious, but also a tight-knit crew. Here you will be a part of a team of people who aspire to do nothing less than transform what this industry can become. Here you will have the opportunity to put your fingerprints on culture at large.

Founded by strategists, which means that strategy was and always will be at the core of everything they do, Strategy and Creative at is an extremely close partnership across every aspect of everything they make. Strategists regularly take on everything from big brand campaigns to strategic consultancy projects to music strategies to growth strategies for start-ups to treatments for documentary films. They’re a motley crew that hails from backgrounds in brand strategy to product design to digital start-ups to the music industry. They live and breathe the culture in which we live, and aspire to have every iota of the work do the same.

YOU are smart, clever, passionate, nice, friendly, open, unassuming, and modest yet confident. You are someone creatives want to hang out with, account people can rely on, and clients will engage with and take advice from. You are a close-knit partner with your teammates and clients alike in the creation of breathtakingly original and incisive solutions to a massive array of huge brand challenges. You are able to identify big ideas, develop them with creatives, and nurture them through collaboration with potential agency partners and clients. You are not only the specialist at gathering vital information, but you share that information with varied audiences within the agency.
You are proactive and have a hands-on mentality, handling your own projects and taking responsibility from beginning to end. One of your greatest strengths is your pen game; you are a skilled writer with a knack for selling a good story, whether written or verbal.

The Strategist is responsible for helping drive client strategy for current and new clients, and is focused on helping brands resonate in culture. A deep thinker and seasoned research veteran, (s)he ultimately assures the outstanding quality of the strategic and creative products the team produces. You will need at least 3-6 years of experience in strategy and, more importantly, you don’t just want to be a part of creating amazing work: you want to be a part of continuing to build an amazing agency. You know how to identify and understand the wants, needs, and motivations of key audiences for your brand(s), and you can effectively tell stories that enroll teammates into that understanding. Your approach to research and insight mining is not just gathering information, it’s also being able to draw something surprising from it. You enjoy the distillation process – relying on a mix of resourcefulness, intuition, and natural curiosity to decode cultural experiences. You can be both big-picture oriented and detail-oriented in the same day, and have the ability and desire to make daily tactics as interesting and strategic as the next big idea. You’ll be expected to demonstrate, evangelize, and live the core values of the agency daily.

PLACED: Group Strategy Director, $200K, NYC

Are you a creative problem-solver who can think big, is a student of culture and is passionate about ideas? Come join the agency that creates buzz-worthy cultural conversation for exceptional brands.

You are a strategic, curious and creative leader who can drive business from strategy development through final execution. You have a proactive, accountability-first, leadership sensibility with a hands-on work style and ability to guide day-to-day activity as necessary. The Strategy team uses their business acumen and experience in conducting interesting research, identifying solid insights (across consumer, culture, category and company), writing concise briefs, inspiring great creative work that is strategically sound, and presenting the same convincingly. You’ll develop brand essence and other strategic deliverables, and in collaboration with Media colleagues, own creation of campaign architecture and communications planning that will guide campaign development. You will have day-to-day responsibilities on marquee clients and should be equally comfortable leading C-Suite relationships as well as rolling up your sleeves and getting scrappy. You can find the human insight to solve a business problem and further develop that idea into actionable and superior creative executions.

We need someone who’s a nerd about strategic craft. Authorship is central to all the agency does –storytelling is their art – especially in service of smart business and brand building opportunity. We need someone with a strong toolbox for creating and directing strategic efforts – experience across categories and clients – and some seasoning in leading teams and businesses. We need someone with a cultural nose – an inner passion to know the code behind the passions people subscribe to – and a range of work that shows experience translating insight across problems, businesses and brands. We need someone who likes to get into the brain of the businesses.  Strategic power can be most valuable in story-selling – so it’s important to see evidence that insights and ideas are leveraged to elevate the brand IQ of clients and their creative work.

Please… be collaborative and welcoming; people need to feel they can ask for your help and actively involve you in discussions with clients and amongst the team. You are quick thinking and smart, able to debate complex issues with clients at length and under pressure. To that end, you likely have a natural authority and can clearly and brilliantly express complex ideas simply. However, you need to act in an ‘open’ way, responding openly to client questions, seeking information from other parties and sharing the knowledge you have. Your ‘can do’ spirit is infectious and attractive to both colleagues and clients. Category diversity is a plus; 12-15+ years strategic planning experience a must.
