WHY DEPT®?

We are pioneers at heart. What this means, is that we are always leaning forward, thinking of what we can create tomorrow that does not exist today. We were born digital and we are a new model of agency, with a deep skillset in tech and marketing. That’s why we hire curious, self-driven, talented people who never stop innovating.

Our culture is big enough to cope and small enough to care. Meaning, that with people across 20+ countries, we’re big enough to provide you with the best tools, global opportunities, and benefits that help you thrive. While acting small by investing in you, your growth, your team, and giving you the autonomy to solve our clients' problems, no matter where you are in the world. 

 

THE ROLE

We’re looking for a Creative Director to lead a new specialization within our Creative team. Always-on organic content has always been an integral part of our business, and as our client list and our team continues to grow, we’re eager to bring on a leader who can help elevate the quality and creativity of our offering.

This person will lead with great ideas — big ideas and small ideas that cut through the crowded social media landscape. They’ll have a strong POV on what makes for great organic content and they’ll work daily with creative and design teams to achieve that vision. They’ll be equally comfortable overseeing projects and getting hands-on to deliver the best work.

We believe cultural relevance is essential to successful organic content. This Creative Director should have a keen eye for trends on social and behaviors that drive them. They must also have experience working with brands to navigate this landscape, whether that means jumping on trends or creating their own.

There is also a strategic element to this role — this Creative Director will contribute to long-term content strategies for existing and potential clients. As part of this, they’ll have points of view on the roles of established and emerging social platforms in always-on brand building.
