We got 99 problems. Every day. And we need help solving them. We uncover hidden insights about brands, culture and people to help point the way to a brand’s Irresistible Truth. Then we help imagine ways to express it unforgettably.

Is your curiosity relentless? Comfortable pulling a Simmons run, analyzing quant, or writing a discussion guide? Just as comfortable pounding the digital (and literal) pavement to get there the hard way when duty calls? Are you confident staring right into your solar plexus and trusting your instincts?

Do you like to learn so hard that by the time you’re done, there’s no one who knows more about what you’ve learned than you do (other than maybe your mom, but she doesn’t count). Good. Because we’re restless AF and we don't like to let anything sit for too long, especially the brands we work with. So at one point or another, you’ll touch just about all of them.

Can you distill your findings into points that really matter? Are you great at packaging up info and analysis into the briefest of briefs that inspires others to create?

If all of that’s rocking your bells, we should talk.


The Mandatories

  • Research and analysis like WHAT. The ability to develop a comprehensive context for creative strategies by generating and analyzing a range of information in great detail, including business financials, market reports, consumer and trend data and qualitative insight. You’ll also be required to run research groups and structured interviews, as well as work to commission, craft and analyze quantitative surveys.

  • Storytelling. Both internally, via smart, flawless briefs, and externally, for confident, compelling presentations to our clients.

  • Cool with clients. Polished up and ready to parlay with clients to drill down to their specific business and communications needs and present our strategy to them.

  • Gusto. Someone who swings for the fences every at bat.
