    Attention challengers of normal. We need curious people. The kind of people who know that ideas sometimes have to be wrestled to the ground and other times taken out for dinner. We need people to make ideas that move people. Is it fun? Yep. Is it hard work? Yep. We have good coffee. We will pay you. You will grow. Come on in, the water is fine.

    Summary

    The Creative Recruiter will serve as an extension of the Creative Leads to help place talent across the agency on various client teams. The Creative Recruiter should have a keen eye for talent, so assessing creative portfolios to provide constructive feedback comes with ease. The Creative Recruiter should easily pivot from recruiting a salaried position that starts in a few weeks to finding the perfect freelancer for an immediate project.
