senior media strategist

jax, atl

Since 1989, truly understanding people has been a unique trait of ours, not just a by-product of a process. We value a human insight over algorithms. Mine data to get into consumers’ mindset. Then engage with them in a meaningful way. It’s helped us grow to include over 100 employees across three offices. But more importantly, it’s helped our clients grow and succeed. Curious, honest, open and brave–it’s why we say, we get people.


We know the only way to truly understand people is to have diversity of thought. Through our DE&I initiatives, we work to ensure that we are inclusive and diverse as an agency—to better engage with our current employees, improve our hiring process, and provide optimal service to our clients. We want great people from all backgrounds with diverse perspectives and ideas. Being yourself is encouraged. That’s how we all achieve success.
