Spark No. 9 is looking for a strategic Creative Lead with strong storytelling skills to lead, inspire, collaborate with, and develop our growing creative team. You’ll set creative direction when needed, provide actionable feedback, and drive creative decision-making in support of business goals throughout a project; from ad campaign strategy to development to testing to synthesis.
What if market research produced actionable strategies, not just insight?
Spark No. 9 uses ad campaigns to test new product concepts, pivots, and brand positioning at a strategic level. Our methodology is more effective than traditional market research because a) we reach people in real-life settings, and b) we track actual behavior--clicks on ads, signups on landing pages, and so on.
We are experts at defining online audiences, using lifestyle and other factors, and then identifying how to frame brand and message to resonate effectively with each audience. Our goal: to create road-tested, scalable, statistically valid customer acquisition strategies for our clients. Our deliverable: working models for customer acquisition.
We believe algorithms + human brains = the best of both worlds
At Spark, we practice real-time design—moving quickly from concept to mock to customer testing. You will be tasked with bringing to life new product offerings for many different types of businesses in a way that drives engagement and conversion. Although we have high standards and love all things visual, we are not precious. You are highly goal-oriented and willing a) to eliminate what isn’t producing results and b) invent and iterate as needed to achieve desired results.
We are strong believers in smart people who wear multiple hats - the mortars, if you will. If you have a non-traditional background (studied philosophy, took a year off to hike through the Andes), and believe you would kill it at this job, we want to hear from you.
Spark No.9 is a rapidly growing firm. There will be many ways for you to evolve your role as the company continues to get bigger and better.
