What does an Creative Strategist do at companies like 3Q DIGITAL?

3Q Digital is leading the disruption of the growth marketing industry by turning our clients into market leaders and household names across the B2C, B2B, ecommerce, and FinTech verticals. We’re independent and values-driven, and the way we work reflects our Silicon Valley roots: we're relentless, curious, and accept no limits in driving growth for our clients and each other.

We offer full marketing services including SEM, SEO, social advertising, display, mobile, analytics, CRO, creative, and business strategy. We build and execute strategies to enable clients and our own internal teams to capitalize on opportunities, break through barriers to growth, and lead our respective fields.

We are committed to building and sustaining an environment where everyone feels psychologically safe and valued. We seek frequent, open feedback from our team and we offer company-wide training and regular, open discussions on diversity, equity, inclusion and other social issues.

About You

The Creative Strategist will serve as a thought leader on visual elements that impact advertising performance. As a Creative Strategist, you will be responsible for evangelizing, tracking and ensuring adherence to an in-house creative testing methodology rooted strongly in data. You will serve as a liaison between Media and Design teams, building strong rapport on both sides through process, documentation and a constant creative feedback loop.

The ideal candidate has a proven track record in delivering strategic creative recommendations that can scale, loves using data to tell a story, and has direct experience managing Display/GDN/UAC ad creative. This individual will report directly to 3Q’s head of Creative Strategy.

You will need to be quick on your feet, able to adapt to an ever changing, fast-paced, growing environment, and handle critical tasks that enable growth for our customers.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Driving the creative strategy for a large-scale account located in many countries; working directly with account and design teams to execute strategic creative testing (this is a large team with several moving parts at any given time)
  • Develop and maintain strategic creative testing roadmaps for account (by geo); forming testing hypotheses, prioritizing tests based upon anticipated impact and past testing results with an “always on” testing approach
  • Creative brief development in accordance to the creative testing roadmap
  • Creating a constant feedback loop between teams with organized documentation of all creative performance and tests
  • Prepare and present creative audits to clients through creative performance analysis, competitive research and persona development
  • Evangelizing 3Q’s vision of high iterations of creative testing in order to improve advertising performance
  • Assisting in prioritizing the creative queue of requests based on a number of factors (urgency, expected impact, client expectations, etc.)
  • Producing thought leadership for 3Q Marketing purposes: blog posts, case studies, white papers, webinars
  • Continually working with project management and account teams to make processes smoother, build documentation, and produce case studies

Note: This is not a Design role. While some experience in Design is a plus, this role is ideal for someone who is passionate about the business side of producing advertising creative at scale for clients.

You’ll need to have:

  • A minimum of 2 years experience working directly with creative production and a minimum of 2 years of media buying experience in visually-driven online channels
  • Extensive experience using data to fuel creative testing recommendations
  • An impressive knowledge of visual advertising platforms in Display (GDN, RDA) and Mobile (UAC)
  • Strong, professional and verbal communication skills (you should be more than comfortable speaking to clients and internal stakeholders)
  • Excellent writing and strategic content creation skills

Additional things that will impress us:

  • Ability to work within a large team with lots of moving pieces
  • Exceptional time management skills, including the ability to handle multiple projects and ongoing work items; while effectively managing changing priorities 
  • Ability to be strong/assertive with strategy recommendations
  • Agency experience, and comfortability working in a very fast-paced environment
  • You are a believer in “work/life integration” – this is not a 9 to 5 job by any means
