At VMLY&R, we create connected brands. We resist the usual ways of seeing, doing and thinking - harnessing creativity, technology and culture - to reimagine the entire connected consumer experience. Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people's lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world.

Let's get something straight-we're not hiring a group creative director.

Still reading? Great. Because at VMLY&R, we're not just about the titles. Sure, they're nice to see on our business cards, but we're really so much more. True, we have a range of expertise from building websites and online media to developing full-on campaigns, but that's not who we are. It's just what we do.

Because VMLY&R is a place that values hard work, the human spirit and the idea that if it doesn't exist, it can be created. We've been voted one of the 25 best places to work in America three times and have partnered with some of the most recognizable brands in the world. And with a couple of decades under our belt, our trophy case is getting pretty full too.

As part of the WPP Group, VMLY&R offers one of the best overall compensation packages in the business.

Required Skills

  • Award-winning conceptual skills, plus a command of the digital space and the talent to take advertising campaigns across diverse platforms

  • Strong ability to lead a team of art directors and copywriters and play nice with others, including account managers and technical directors

  • Desire to work in a fast-paced environment and to learn something new every day

  • Strong interpersonal and client presentation skills

Required Experience

  • A bachelor's degree, design or writing emphasis preferred

  • 10-plus years of experience in the advertising/online field

  • Experience generating new business and developing client relationships

VMLY&R is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
