Pacific Palisades, CA

What we need from everyone:
Values alignment. We live and lead by our values. You can read about them here.
What we need from you:

You have a proven track record.

  • You have worked on multiple accounts across multiple categories. You can show us your contributions and how they made a difference.

You are a catalyst for co-creation.

  • You are integral to helping clients at every level understand the situations they are in, what is authentic and special about their brand, and the problems they are trying to solve.
  • You inspire and possess strong team leadership. People want to be around you, especially our creatives and clients. When you’re not in the room, people are asking “why not?”
  • You are fast, but still very thoughtful in the approach. Your experience has given you the intuition to know where to go and the business acumen to have a playbook.
  • You have the ability to spot, nurture, package, present, and champion big ideas. Working closely with the team to shape the work and consistently deliver best-in-class thinking is second nature.
  • Incredible writing talents.

You simplify the complex.

  • You are curious with an ability to rise above the data points, recognizing patterns and finding insight, seeing the truth and then laying out a path.
  • You are beyond comfortable interpreting market research (qual, quant, tools of the industry, etc.) and can effectively use the information to build sound narratives.
  • You know how to form an argument, lay out a case, and convince others through the combination of logic and storytelling.
  • You are a master of brand architectures and positioning statements.
  • You never see decks as a problem.

You can see the big picture and contribute to it.

  • You have a grounded vision for the role of strategy in communications, especially within a continuously changing media landscape.
  • You contribute to the agency vision, helping to pave the road map that gets us there.

Does this sound like you? If so, here are a few things we're interested in:

  • 8-10 years of agency strategy experience (a must)
  • A portfolio of work including case studies and briefs
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills with the ability to lead meetings (with clients and colleagues); people want to be around you all the time
  • Ability to work independently, proactively in a fast-paced environment
  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent work experience
