Arts & Letters is looking for a Business Director

Job Description

Arts & Letters is an independent creative company working in Advertising and Technology. We’ve solved some of the biggest problems for some of the world’s best companies and our collective lesson is that today’s modern clients need a creative partner built to work the way they do. So we’re fast. We create ideas the same way the best tech companies create products: quickly, iteratively, focused on an audience. We’re open. We involve everyone in the creative process. Some find this thrilling. Others find it terrifying. Everyone finds it valuable. Most importantly, we’re optimistic. We love to work with people who want to change things. Because we know things can change. Usually quicker than anyone ever thought possible.

A Business Director at A&L is…

a leader who helps everyone here exceed their own expectations. They embrace a hybrid role that requires not only leading pieces of business and teams but, but also directing the strategic thinking across projects. Business Directors at A&L are equal parts great strategist and detail-obsessed account director. (We actually hire Business Directors from both backgrounds.) It’s a role that requires player/coaches who are as creative as their counterparts while also requiring a business acumen as sharp as their client partners. It’s a role that demands a strong vision and a light touch to bring stability in an ever-changing dynamic. Our Business Directors chart the course through the ups and downs of getting to creative work that reaches the highest bar, and, perhaps more importantly, they show everyone how to protect the ball once we get there.

To excel in this position you must have…

8+ years experience as a leader in the Advertising or Creative industries
A strong strategic mind
A hunger for creative greatness
A belief in the power of relationships
A belief in everyone’s potential
A desire to mentor others
Great presentation & communication skills
Ability to be agile and a strong collaborator
Interest in and/or knowledge of the technology sector
