Designer

  • Sydney NSW, Australia
  • Full-time

Company Description

We are defined by a unique and industry-leading model, characterised by flexibility, imagination and results. We call it the ‘Agile Creative + Media Model’. We began our journey in 2007 as Atomic Search, a performance media buying agency and data-driven search specialist. Since then the business has transformed into Atomic 212°, with a full range of services that blend creative, media, technology and data. But our origins still define our DNA. We are the only full service agency in Australia that has started out as a search marketing and performance media business, and as such accountability for the spending of every client dollar remains at the heart of our operation. Accordingly, we have re-engineered our tools for digital performance media to extend across all channels. Of course, the use of creative principles to propel our data-driven insights is also key. The proposition is simple: use technology, data and imagination to identify the most effective media mix. And if we can have some fun with it, even better!
