We’re a boutique brand strategy agency looking for a Full Time Brand Strategist to serve our portfolio of clients at Concept Bureau. As a Brand Strategist in our group, you will be responsible for research, development and final brand strategy deliverables in close collaboration with the team and the client. You will be trained in our research-based frameworks and systems, but we also expect you to be an integral part of helping us improve and expand our approach, which is something we are always doing. More than just building brands, our work is to push forward the very practice of brand building for our clients and wider audience.
The right person for this role has an intimate understanding of brand strategy, culture, subculture, consumer behavior and the market. If you are someone that doesn’t just care that a brand strategy works, but also needs to understand how and why it works, we encourage you to apply.
We’re looking for preferably an LA-based team member (although we are open to non-LA based) who will work remote but is still available for in-person team meetings in the future. We offer competitive salary, full benefits and a collaborative team environment.
