Digital Activation Manager

  • Full-time

Job Description

At Spark Foundry our vision is to Fuel Famously Effective Ideas. Famous and Effective. Not one or the other, both. That sounds nice, but to get to famously effective ideas you need some key ingredients.

You need diverse thinkers and diverse thinking. We call this Allsorts. This helps us tackle obstacles through different disciplines and perspectives. You need to thrive on the belief that great ideas are only great if they work. It’s not enough to be new, or cool, or interesting. Our solutions need to drive a business result. Everything else is vanity. You need to embrace both the art and the evidence. Right and left. Imagination and activation. Insight and technology. Big ideas, forensically measured.

All that while being a good human? Sound like you? Sound like where you’d like to be? We’d love to meet you.
