THE ROLE 

Let’s cut to the chase: if you are an innovative creative leader with a social-first and culturally tuned-in mindset, looking to elevate social-first creativity to unprecedented heights, well…this job might be right for you. The ECD will play a pivotal role in supporting the growth of our social-first, culture-first agency, leading, guiding and inspiring our creative team of 20+ writers, art directors, content creators, designers, motion artists and more. You’ll lead in setting the vision for how the brands we work with show up across every touchpoint (social, digital, experiential, OOH and more).  You will work in partnership with account and strategy leaders to not only grow accounts, but also innovate and develop award-winning work that keeps clients coming back for more.   

As ECD, you are the optimistic and tireless creative force leading the team to create culturally-tuned-in work that wows clients and impresses the industry.  You are a client whisperer, a trend-miner, a fierce collaborator and an inspiring mentor.  You foster an environment of innovation and mind-blowing creativity, inspiring your teams to do the best work of their careers.  You have a keen eye for social-first storytelling, and a penchant for work that lives at the cross-section of entertainment and advertising, ranging from viral social content to headline-grabbing campaigns and years-long campaign platforms.   

This role will report directly into CCO and Co-Founder Geoffrey Goldberg. Fun Fact: Geoffrey spent a former career as a Broadway performer, and is now recognized as an industry thought-leader, as a Creative 100 and Creative 40 under 40.  He brings a unique perspective on the convergence of Advertising, Entertainment and Creator Culture.
