Department: Account Planning & Hooligan
Reports to: Account Planners
Note: This position is based in Anchorage.
If you’re ready for the most invigorating ascent of a lifetime, Spawn Ideas is right for you. Our home base is in Anchorage, AK, nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Chugach mountains. We’re a fully integrated advertising agency that’s independent and employee owned, which means our team of employees all have “skin in the game.” There are no sideliners here, just a bold and resourceful team with enough courage to summit any challenge for our clients.
Up here, we’re perpetual adventurers who pursue the outdoors and bring a fresh perspective to our creative work. We live by the mantra “when the agency succeeds, we succeed.” Our ownership and determination to push further has led us to success for our clients and a series of accolades we’re quite proud of.
Our recent big wins include Ad Age’s Small Agency of the Year, Northwest and a national award for Best Culture. We’ve also been voted one of Outside Magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work in America (six years running), rising to number four in 2015. Inc. Magazine named us Fastest Growing Companies in America and we were also listed as one of the 75 Best Places to Work for Millennials (2015) in the country.
Want to be part of an energetic team that plays as hard as we work? We’re looking for an Account Planning Intern.
This is a temporary, full-time, non-exempt, entry-level position.
If you enjoy teamwork, group-collaboration and want to learn the ins and the outs of the advertising industry, you’ll find yourself right at home here. And don’t worry, no coffee runs here. You’ll be getting real experience working alongside the account team, creative team, and media teams. We don’t require you to know it all, we just ask that have a hunger to learn it all.
As a strategy intern, you will apply consumer understanding to creative problems. You’ll support our account planning staff through research and analytics, crafting strategies and bringing innovation efforts to life. Beyond just marketing and advertising, you will be part of growing our Design Thinking practice, Hooligan. Hooligan delivers innovative products, services, and experiences to our clients in Alaska and beyond. You’ll work alongside account service, digital, media, creative individuals and teams to bring about disruptive innovation. You will not only be launching your career, but a new way of thinking and doing business in the state. This means that you are an equal partner in supporting great work — and our expectations are high.
This isn’t a right-brain or left-brain type position. We want you and your whole brain and unique perspectives. As such, we expect you to be as comfortable with pivot tables as you are presenting strategic ideas to leadership. Excited? Read on…
