Creative Strategist

The Role:
At Code and Theory, our Creative Strategists ensure creative solutions are addressed considering all areas of a client's business, brand, and overarching objectives. Beyond merely developing creative solutions for our clients, we do so in a meaningful way that is implementable given organizational, technology, and timeline constraints.
Creative Strategists are ultimately responsible for bringing new ideas to life. They guide creative concepts from inception through design, development, and final implementation. They also define a path of action, ensuring our plan for making creative ideas a reality are communicated effectively.
Partnering closely with visual and interaction designers, experience strategists, producers and technology leads, you will define and implement the strategic vision for our client. Your experience working across all elements of the product development process means you are capable of executing on a range of deliverables with minimal oversight from fellow strategists. Your confidence and articulate communication-style will be called upon when interfacing, and presenting work to, our clients.

  • Own overall strategy implementation and lead client presentations on findings and final presentation of creative solutions
  • Structure and champion creative brainstorms, adhering to overall strategy, driving key decisions, and communicating results to broader project teams
  • Work collaborative with technology team to ensure final digital product delivers on the original creative concept and lead internal creative iterations, as needed
  • Conduct targeted research into brand, competitor, or business whitespace through review of secondary and primary sources
  • Partner with Experience Strategy and Data, Analytics and Research teams to develop primary research plans, conduct research, and analyze results
  • Support Creative Strategy Director in creation of key client deliverables
  • Assist with business development opportunities

  • 4-6 years experience in a Product Manager or Digital Strategy role, preferably in a strategic digital agency environment
  • Personal involvement in successful digital product development engagements, producing key client-facing deliverables associated with the product / campaign development process
  • Clear and effective communication of thoughts, delivering insights to senior client partners and stakeholders with ease
  • Promote mentality of continual creative improvement; actively contributing to a culture of innovation, excellence, and accountability
  • Flexibility of skill set and personality are important; this role is unpredictable and your contribution across a wide range of activities will be important
