US: Though part of Stagwell, we’re a scrappy group.  We don’t fight fair, we’re a challenger agency for challenger brands.  Our success requires a great attitude and work ethic from everyone.  We’ll give you constant contact with the office’s top executives and let you bite off more than you can chew.  But hey…that’s how you learn.  We pitch a lot of new business.  We crack a lot of dumb jokes.  And eat a lot of tacos.  We work hard.  We work together.  And we win together.  And we just happen to be located in one of the greatest cities in the world.  If that sounds good…apply today.
