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.
Do you have a favorite, Mac or PC? Can you keep the answer to that hidden to users in a cross-platform environment? Are you more interested than normal people in servers, storage, digi-security, weird problems, dumb complaints expressed poorly at inopportune moments, and steadily bearing witness to an unending catalog of human foibles that you never asked to see? Are you willing to wear many different hats, including hats you fashion for yourself describing positions that don’t have an obvious hat already: analyst, engineer, installer, maintainer, up-to-date expert, gentle trouble-shooter, spontaneous confidante, midnight confessor, tech-snafu detective, therapist, buddy, stern pseudo-parental figure, first person in, last person out? Are you sure about that? Would you admit it if you weren’t sure?
Are you a Writer?
Have you single-handedly filled enough notebooks to deforest the Amazon? Do you have graffiti charges on your criminal record because you took it upon yourself to correct a poorly written sign? Do you have to suppress your gag reflex when someone says “utilize” instead of “use”? Can you think of a hundred different ways to sell the same product? And just as many ways to word the same idea? Do you believe a well-written ad can have no copy?
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.
