SENIOR BRAND STRATEGIST

Who We Are

DNA is an independent creative agency in the Metropolis-meets-Mother-Nature hotbed of Seattle. Our thing? We make love between people and brands. How do we do it? By helping brands be entertaining, engaging, relevant and useful, day in and day out. What it requires of us is curiosity, courage, talent, honesty, hard work and a healthy dose of magic. At DNA, we have a ‘maker’ mentality where creativity lives in every department, where new voices and perspectives are nurtured, and we never, ever forget that the work is the boss.

Our View of Strategy

Marketing and business challenges big and small, straight-forward and completely wonky all have one thing in common – they need a creatively driven strategist who is smart, resourceful, proactive and passionate about doing the best work possible to solve them. We believe the lines between strategy are blurring and that breakthrough work requires breaking down barriers between brand strategy, connections strategy, and data strategy.

If you love asking questions and debating, digging and exploring for answers

If you believe creative is a better adjective than a noun or the name of a
“department”

If you believe great brand strategy helps brands understand and care about the things people care about in their daily lives and in culture

Because we’re looking for someone like you.
