Do you produce stories like it's your job? It could be.

Day One Agency—AdAge’s Social and Influencer Agency of the Year—is hiring! We’re looking for a Post Producer to join our rising team. The right candidate will be ambitious, hard-working, and dedicated to telling stories that stop people in their scroll. You’ll take pride in your work, show initiative, and go the extra mile to ensure that our clients are serviced in the best way possible. We’re looking for self-starters with creative agency experience who are willing to work collaboratively and quickly with our squad. Excellent organizational skills are imperative. In return, you’ll be in a rewarding learning environment with a great opportunity to grow and further your knowledge and career.

Our company culture is at the core of everything we do. It defines our vibe. It’s what makes every day, Day One. We offer a highly collaborative environment where smart and passionate people come together to solve some of creative communications challenges. It’s no secret; we work hard — but only on the things we love. From the day this agency was created, we vowed to only work on projects that fire us up. And that’s not changing any day soon. We emphasize and value our relationships– after all, we’re powered by them. Our colleagues, clients, and partners are the most important part of our business.

The Post Producer will lead the process in managing stories and asset creative for our Fuel & Studio teams as we continue to grow as an agency and develop more story-first content for our clients.
