Overview

VSA was founded as a design firm more than 30 years ago with the belief that design is not only a craft, but a tool for achieving business objectives. As design thinkers, we approach business challenges holistically and aim to break down silos between branding, digital, marketing and advertising.

 

At the heart of VSA are great creative minds (and hands) that make artwork that works. We love what we do, and that will be our expectation during your time here at VSA - that you love what you are doing and that you make things that you are insanely proud of. We are a collective of smart, dedicated, collaborative and kind people, who value smarts over ego. Great ideas come from everywhere, but it takes an elite group of craftspeople to turn those ideas into meaningful, effective, and beautiful work. That is what we do here - we work very hard to create human inspired, human centered work that reaches people and inspires behavior changes.

 

The expectations for our Creative team members are high. We expect you to already have the passion for making great work, which will heighten during your time here. We value creative thinking and conceptual strength as much as we expect our candidates teammates to have an intuitive sense of what is right for each assignment and what is spot on for each application.

 

It goes without saying that we expect everyone who applies to VSA to have the ability to distinguish between good and great. 

Responsibilities

VSA is rapidly expanding, and enjoys a strong new business pipeline. This position offers a chance to help build out the marketing and advertising practice inside an incredibly smart organization that has been dedicated to the creative product for over three decades.

 

We are looking for a writer, who’s looking for a home, where the creative standard is set very high, bureaucracy is low, and egos run on idle. The opportunity is here, but much of the story is still to be written. This is not a big holding company position–and to you, this should be a positive. This is as much about making VSA NY a great place to work, as it is about making work that’s great.

 

When it comes to the work, we’re about finding the smartest solution, full stop. Whether that takes the work to a profound place, or a preposterous one, you’re comfortable with adapting your style and approach to serve the idea.

Qualifications

  • 7+ years of experience on the agency side.
  • The ambition and drive to create world-class, envy-inducing creative work.
  • Experience in a client-facing role.
  • Experience in managing, leading, and developing a team. 
  • Skills in complex problem solving, judgment, critical thinking and decision-making.
  • Flexible thinking, and the ability to multitask
