Producer (Product and Digital)
We are looking for an account-savvy, seasoned digital native to join our Production Team. As a Producer, you facilitate the health of our projects by delivering products that go beyond on time and on budget.

With consummate communication skills, you are comfortable in a variety of professional situations such as organizing client presentations.
Your experience should shows us that:
- you have extensive agency or digital production experience, and this is supported by the project management and tactical skills needed to gracefully produce multiple projects for diverse clients and industries.

- you’re a trusted leader and an active collaborator, able to inspire teammates in multiple disciplines, speak the language of strategy, design and engineering, and deliver actionable direction that elevates performance.
- you’re an organized presenter and natural facilitator capable of communicating complex ideas to very different audiences. You inspire confidence in client executives and colleagues alike, and serve as a stress reducer and proactive connector in pressure-filled situations.
- you’re an innovative problem-solver and creative thinker, delivering tangible solutions with concrete results. Your track record shows a pattern of innovation despite project constraints. You’re more than theories and wild ideas -- you’ve found ways to get your ideas off the whiteboard and into the world
As Producer, your primary responsibilities will be to:
- Produce medium to large scale digital products by working with clients and product team with the ongoing management of deliverables, budgets and schedule
- Create documentation such as statements of work, proposal scopes, drafting meeting notes with actionable steps for clients and internal teams, write user flows and functionalities.
- Actively report on dependencies that affect agency health such as shifting invoicing schedules, or servicing change orders which may affect resourcing or cash flow.
- Support new business workstream through collaboration with strategy team by synthesizing business requirements and scoping projects or RFP’s.
- Manage vendor selection process as needed for project engagements from drafting briefs and gathering bids, to working with operations and finance team to finalize contracts.
