The Job:

We are looking for an exceptional executer with 6-10 years of experience producing digital projects, including websites, apps and direct marketing email campaigns.

The Sr. Interactive Producer manages complex web applications, direct-marketing emails, web pages, and daily maintenance requests.

The Producer is the interface between the client and internal resources. This individual oversees the information architecture, design/copy and front-end development in conjunction with various cross-functional teams.

  • Participate in and lead ongoing reviews with internal teams and executive stakeholders
  • Ensure timely development of all project deliverables
  • Create project briefs and project schedules
  • Ensure each deliverable is approved by stakeholders, cross-functional teams, editing and legal
  • Participate in QA process to ensure that final builds are representative of client’s work and vision

What you'll (mostly) bring:

  • At least 6-10 years of experience managing creative and technical interactive teams and producing digital projects at an advertising agency, web development studio or client-side (or comparable professional experience)
  • Experience developing complex web applications for design-driven organizations
  • Knowledge of user-interaction design and obsessive attention to detail in visual design
  • Strong negotiation skills and ability to creatively solve problems
  • Strong presentation skills and ability to engage internal teams and stakeholders
  • Proven track record of building strong client relationships
  • Self-starter with the ability to work independently
  • Familiarity with web technologies (HTML, Javascript, CSS)
  • Excellent written and verbal communicator with great interpersonal skills
  • Proven success managing clients/stakeholders
  • Flexibility in managing requirements in fast-paced and changing environments
  • Expertise managing direct marketing email campaigns
  • Experience using relevant project/process management tools—Workamajig, campaign management and bug tracking
  • Demonstrated success in a leadership role

Extra Credit:

  • Experience working in an Agency
  • Experience working embedded at a client site
  • Experience with mobile applications, software development and content management systems

Our humblebrag:

Join an awarding winning, digitally-focused, full-service independent agency staffed by a bunch of folks who love what they do  and do what they love. Still on the rise after 17 years of success, you'll enjoy a satisfying suite of benefits, as well as the chance to work on the world's most well-know brand. 

Will you accept our mission?

We believe that great work is spontaneous, and the best ideas come from a diverse team of creatively-minded individuals. Our goal is to be an agency where the journey getting there is as great as the work itself, and we’re looking for the right people to help us do it.
