Think, part cultural maven, social activist, strategist and communicator who is also heart led and believes business can and should be a platform for positive change. You’re curious and optimistic. You love staying plugged into the trends and issues that drive culture. You know that people inspired and mobilized can be leaders alongside brands to push the world forward.
You will contribute to positioning mission driven brands as well as develop strategies to create positive social impact with brands. You will help plan and lead research initiatives that provide actionable knowledge on our clients’ brand, culture, and audience. You’ll uncover insights through various research and discovery methods including but not limited to primary and secondary research, ethnographic research, surveys, user interviews, etc. You'll identify patterns, pull out insights, interpret cultural and social trends, and bridge them with the current landscape to craft fresh and smart strategies to reach and activate people.
From your research and insights, you will contribute to the conceptualization and writing of articles and final published reports. You will create content that shares our learnings and helps the world understand how business can create impact at scale.
You have the proven chops. You have 3-10 years of experience in strategy / problem solving / planning within an agency and have a strong understanding of how to think about brands and their potential to create scalable change.
You’re an exceptional communicator. You have a gift for understanding your audience, and can effectively communicate whether delicately crafting a strategic story within a deck or brief, or bringing strategic inspiration to creative teams.
You’re an insights detective. You can take complex ideas and make them beautifully simple and powerful. You’re comfortable developing strategic insights for our existing clients as well as new business opportunities. A lot of times, the briefings mentioned above are for pitches, and they need grounding, facts, direction and action at lightning speed.
You have an excellent tool belt and constantly bring fresh ideas to the table.

You pride yourself on pinpointing the newest, most cutting edge artists, thinkers and doers that shape our future.
You are naturally curious and hungry to learn. You’re fascinated by what the future may look like. You’re eager to discover as much as you can about anything. You’re as comfortable digging for gold in a pile of research as you are creating a new survey, or interviewing stakeholders for research.
You’re keen on the details. No slip ups can get by your eye. You have a sharp, strong attention to detail and feel as though detail and nuance are your superpowers. You can easily find the tensions to leverage for change.
You’re a proactive self-starter. You don’t need to be handheld, rather you seek autonomy to spread your wings and see each task as an opportunity to learn and grow. Thus, you’re naturally trusted with a lot of responsibilities.
You’re a mission-aligned team player. Maybe you haven’t found work in the “impact space” but you’re passionate about it. You’re known for your empathy and desire to make a positive impact on those you meet. You bring humility and integrity, and levity to the table every day.
