Job Description

CREATIVE TEAM (Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver)

To do it “Motive Style” to chase ideas that thoughtfully bring together smart strategy, thought-provoking and entertaining creativity and a knack for meaningful work that moves the needle for your client—whether they’re selling sodas, chips, sporting goods or chocolate without added sugar. Our creative studio is hell-bent on bringing together insights and imagination, and our next senior creative team will not only fit the bill...they’ll raise the bar.

We’re looking for a pair of thinkers who aren’t afraid to test the limits of a brief, to dream up wild ideas that work in a changing world, or to merge their pasts at big-time agencies with a desire to do something new and different as part of an agency built for the future. This team will be TV experts, campaign masterminds, experience architects and press-getting powerhouses. Together, they’ll help solidify our traditional offerings while joining us in blazing a nontraditional trail through the industry, all while leading and mentoring an impressive team of creative talent.

Sound like you? Let’s get to work.


Key Areas of Responsibility

  • Work with the Motive creative and account teams to ideate around, and then create, multiple projects at a time (we like multitasking pros here).
  • Work as part of a team that collaborates on nearly everything to achieve the best possible results—knowing that, at times, you may be asked to complete whole deliverables on your own.
  • Be willing to take on anything, at any time, doing whatever it takes to complete amazing end results.
  • Continually push yourselves and those around you to do better work.
  • Bring your always growing skills to work every day on a variety of projects across the digital, experiential and traditional arenas.
  • Stay on the bleeding edge of industry trends and information regarding key Motive accounts and projects.

Candidate Requirements

  • 6+ years experience at an integrated creatively-led agency (that means in addition to ad school).
  • Online portfolio (we want to see a website, not PDF files or Word documents) that shows a variety of creative work—in particular, TV commercial work and brand campaigns.
  • Exceptional communication skills and experience in presenting work to internal and external constituents.
  • Ability to complete multiple tasks and projects within deadlines, as well as execute projects from start to finish.
  • A passion for collaborative work that translates to synergy with all other studios under the Motive umbrella—from digital, to design, to strategy and cultural insights.
