New York office:
Fortune 100 perks: You’ll have the opportunity to shape the experience of a Fortune 100 company plus the benefits, bonuses, and career growth opportunities are pretty perky, too.
Sweet new office: Think all sit-stand desks, tons of smart break-out work spaces, Zoom-ready conference rooms, game room (video and foos), stocked kitchen with snacks, coffee, and beers galore, and views for days for those days you are actually in the office.
Normal hours: We’re not beholden to the vagaries of clients (we are the clients), so you’re not working through Memorial Day, Labor Day, Turkey Day, MLK Day, Saturday and every other day that most people get to take off and enjoy.
Highest quality work: We set the bar high since we’re alumni of some of the best agencies in NYC. We only create work that we are proud of. The goal is to create award-winning work that rivals any agency.
