This is a Full-time position in New York, NY posted December 12, 2021.

Want to join a team of movers and shakers at the #1 fastest-growing agency?

Were driving cultural relevance and buzz for our clients … and making waves of our own.

Fast Company named Movers+Shakers one of the “Most Innovative Companies” in the world, and AdAge selected us a “Small Marketing Agency of the Year.” We hold the record for most viral TikTok campaign in history, and weve amassed over 150 BILLION views on TikTok. Its no surprise that Adweek called us “the best agency in the world at creating campaigns on TikTok” 

Do you want to do the innovative, disruptive work that most agencies wouldnt even bother to pitch?

Our clients choose Movers+Shakers BECAUSE theyre hungry for us to push them into tomorrow, and deepen their cultural relevance.

Our clients include e.l.f.

Cosmetics, Amazon, J&J, Netflix, and Hasbro to name a few. 

Were really proud of our work, and were even more proud of our culture.

In their first week, new employees inevitably comment on how positive and supportive our workplace is.

A month in, theyre noting how little ego there is, and how departments collaborate surprisingly deeply.

We only work with brands that share our commitment to spreading joy, and we have parted ways with client teams that dont treat our team with joy and respect.
