Now Hiring: Creative Strategy Specialist

This full-time role will take ownership of achieving client outcomes by developing insights from audiences, analytics, and trends, and then implementing those insights alongside our creative team.


  • Help us implement a new public interest contract we’ve received.
  • Develop strategy for a variety of clients.
  • Create original copywriting and ideas.
  • Derive insights from digital analytics and apply those towards creative strategies.
  • Define marketing key performance indicators and track progress towards those goals.


Someone in this role should be familiar with principles of marketing and communications. A background in media or writing would be useful; the ability to communicate well is a must. Modern social media networks, email & web best practices would all form a foundation. It’s important to us that our creative work functions in a meaningful way in the real world with real audiences - something that can be informed by a variety of life experiences.

Our client base draws extensively from public interest subject matter experts - government or nonprofit advocates in sectors like public health, equity, education, and other public interest fields.


Our team is supportive and diverse. We have a dynamic that is driven by emotional intelligence and an authentic desire to make a difference through our work. Many of our clients come from the world of socially progressive nonprofits, so a comfort level with that material would be beneficial.

Since COVID, we’ve transitioned to a hybrid workstyle. The right fit could technically be located anywhere, but our economics will work best for someone based in Mississippi or somewhere similar.
