VP, Group Creative Director | State Farm

The Marketing Arm, Remote

Be Anywhere. Do Anything. Start Here.


We believe in the power of creativity: creativity that makes people think, feel, and then act.

Creativity brimming with bravery and vision, heart and humor, imagination and truth.

We believe that brands should stand for more than what they’re selling.

With culture as our playground and emotion as our craft, we help our clients
change minds, win hearts, and create memories.

We believe that good people are the key to creating great work. Our halls are filled
with passionate thinkers and makers, seasoned experts and rising stars, who unleash
each other’s brilliance and celebrate every win as a team.

Together, we bring ideas from the page into the world, ideas that are so audacious, so original,
so meaningful that they couldn’t come from you or me - only we.

WE ARE TMA. CREATIVITY THAT MATTERS.

 

Job Overview:

You’re a leader and a juggler and a little bit of an architect. You’re the person who makes clients feel like they have a trustworthy go-to. You push until it’s great, and then you push some more. You are one of those who can do and teach. You know how to fight your battles, but you’re even better at picking them. You know how to find the best people, and you know how to keep them. And you can sell it like it’s the best we’ve ever done, every time.

The criteria is straightforward. You must have a passion for arriving at the big idea, collaborating with teams to get that idea on paper and then standing up and selling that idea. All while fostering our fun, energetic, team-first dynamic. Oh, and given the nature of our work, your book should be full of comedic, dialogue-driven broadcast.

  • Inspire and mentor as you manage and cultivate the career development of staff members.
  • Love to learn and also love to teach and share your knowledge.

Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of agency experience
  • 8+ years of broadcast content production on large scale projects
