Company Description

Atomic 212° is a media agency, but not the kind you think. Atomic 212° began as a specialist performance agency and can proudly boast to be Australia's only data-first full service media agency.

Our roots in data are our point of difference.  This focus on analytics and incremental step-by- step improvement remains at the heart of our media approach.  Our media skills inform our data services enabling us to provide implementation and accountability to generate the insight marketers really need.

Our ambition has always been to achieve truly data-led, buying and reporting that facilitates real time insights and more effective strategic thinking.  This requires a constant evolution and we're on this journey with our clients.

Our goal is to be the first agency that delivers Predictive Media for our clients.

Why 212 ?

This is symbolic of boiling point, as in 212° Fahrenheit, a point where liquid turns to gas, molecules separate from each other, and something new and exciting is created. Whether in water or media, the conditions need to be just right to reach the boiling point where creativity occurs. At Atomic 212° we focus on creating this kind of environment and set of conditions.

We have a fabulous office in Walsh Bay. You will get to work with some of the smartest people in the industry and while you are with us you will have fun and develop your career.
