The people make the place.
The place makes the people happy.
Every morning, bells ring out through the hundred-year-old building once known Indianapolis Public School No. 9, and creative minds get to work. This former schoolhouse is now home to us: a mid-sized, Midwestern agency that was anti-established in 1983. And over the years, we’ve managed to fill its halls with a lot of smart, talented, we-feel-lucky-to-know-them people.
The fact that so many of them stay on for years is a testament to the office being a pretty great one. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Ad Age and Outside Magazine have included us on their Best Places to Work lists year after year, and Adweek called us “the one where you’d like to work” in their United States of Ad Agencies.
We’re proud of the accolades, but more than that, we’re proud of the people who helped us earn them. Thanks to them, we’re not only a great place to work but a place to make great work.
As a creative organization, we value diversity in all forms.
We’re committed to being an inclusive and anti-racist environment where every voice is important and every employee is supported. We know we have work to do—not just in recruiting and retaining diverse talent but also in being a force for positive change in our industry.
We are developing a program to help students of color learn about our industry and help them take the first steps toward pursuing a career in advertising.
We are rebuilding our hiring process to identify and eliminate any potential barriers to people of color and recruit diverse talent more effectively.
We are educating our employees about structural racism, unconscious bias and racial equity, and we are intentionally creating a culture where people of color can thrive.
Are you a Senior Account Manager?
First one in, last one home? “The responsible one” in groups you hang out in? Can you jibe with clients? Are you inclined to walk over to the writer and politely discuss whether the word “jibe” fits brand tonality? Do you question insight and strategy behind ads you encounter, to the point it annoys your family? Do you yearn for the next shoot you are heading to?
Was “review Y&L job posting” a line item on a to-do list you made while handling a bunch of timelines, budgets, billing statements and status reports on your current clients? Do you like cleaning up messes? Do you prefer preventing messes?
Are you a Content Producer?
Are you a skilled multitasker with a knack for negotiation? Do you like making great relationships with talented people? Can you keep up with budgets, contracts, and timelines— and keep everyone else up with them, too? Do you have a sense for what makes good creative better? Do people tend to seem a lot more relaxed when you’re around? Do you get excited about bringing great projects to life as a team?
Are you a Writer?
Are you good with words? Can you spin extravagantly verbose phraseology, or write ‘em super simple? Are the seams of your brain constantly bursting with new ideas? Can you find a way to make any subject matter interesting, no matter how not-interesting you find it? Are you hoarding a stack of scrawled-in notebooks you’ll never get rid of? Do your friends ask you to write their texts for them? Are you addicted to the feeling you get from a well-written, well-delivered last line? Are you bothered that THAT wasn’t the last line?
Are you a Digital Media Supervisor?
The Digital Media Supervisor must have demonstrated expertise with media planning and buying across channels, with a strong emphasis on digital media, and understands how digital fits in a client’s overall marketing/media strategy. The ideal candidate is detail-oriented, proficient at managing multiple projects, highly organized, analytical, exhibits strong leadership qualities and possess effective communication skills. The position should ensure that all aspects of a campaign – strategy, plan development, execution, reporting, client communication – are executed seamlessly by all team members involved and make sure clients’ needs and expectations are fulfilled.
Betcha we've been talking about how we really need someone like you around here. It’s just that we haven’t gotten around to posting the job yet.
So go ahead, and introduce yourself.
