ARE YOU THE BRILLIANT MISFIT WE ARE LOOKING FOR?

Do you often find yourself saying “what if we try a new approach?” Are you the one who often wants to push the boundaries a bit further, and then further still, seeing if you can go beyond them? Do you have a hard time figuring out if you prefer to play around with numbers, dig deep into the minds of consumers or build brand strategies and creative concepts that stand out? And have a black belt in managing several projects and teams simultaneously and making sure that everyone is working towards a common goal?

Then you are the brilliant misfit we are looking for. At Seventy, we build brands and businesses that stand out by hiring people who don’t fit the norm. Strategists who want to get creative, designers who love business; we’ve all got the confidence and ambition to drive real change for big companies and future unicorns.

You will have a lot of opportunities to grow and make an impact. You will also be part of a creative and vibrant team of designers, strategists, copywriters, filmmakers and producers. Together, we help the brave make a purposeful difference.
