CURRENT OPENINGS | Art Director, Social Media

Art Director, Social Media

San Diego, Austin or remote

We’re VITRO with offices in San Diego and Austin.

We impact commerce through well-crafted ideas, and we’ve been doing it for more than 29 years. Working at an agency old enough to drink has its advantages – namely, that we know exactly what we’re here to do, which is to create change. We change consumer perceptions, change customer behavior, and change culture at large. Because, by doing so, we change our clients’ businesses and their place in the market.

VITRO was founded in sunny San Diego, and maybe growing up so close to the ocean has helped us maintain a certain vibe and culture. We believe in having fun because perpetual optimism is a force multiplier. We believe in courage because true creativity isn’t afraid to stand up and be counted. And we believe in integrity because building trust creates high performing teams. And, while it’s possible to fail by yourself, success requires teamwork.

The Social Team is one of the fastest-growing teams at the agency. Part think tank, part creative production, the team is looked to by peers and clients to be the eyes, ears, and hands within the social media landscape. How will you know if you’re a fit? You’ll know you’re a fit if you love advertising and love social media. You know what has been trending on TikTok but also know how that differs from what is trending on Twitter. You’ll love to create and build and be part of pop and digital culture. You have that can-do spirit, love to collaborate with a team, and exercise the principles of Radical Candor to get the job done.

We’re looking for a social media-focused Art Director to build the creative duo within the Social Media Team and VITRO. The ideal candidate will have a natural inclination for the social media space and an eye for designing for different platforms. This role is more than resizing between Instagram and Facebook, it’s bigger. We’re looking for an Art Director to work within the team to help think of big ideas that can fit across any social platform – ideas that breakthrough and connect with people.
