Senior Strategist

New York, NY
Creative Strategy
Full-time
About us

At Worn, we’re on a mission to help brands succeed. More specifically, our work is focused on launching products designed for women, and growing companies led by women. We’ve done this for an ever-expanding roster of clients in categories that span from birth to menopause, vitamins to skincare, swimwear to underwear, politics to nonprofits, and more.

About the role

We’re looking for a brilliant Senior Strategist to join our team. You’ll be responsible for leading strategy across all touchpoints of your projects -- identifying research opportunities & needs, crafting brand positionings, informing web designs, guiding verbal & visual identity development, and nurturing campaigns from brief to launch.

About you

You believe that creative output is inspired by creative input, and take an out-of-the-box approach to research. You develop methodologies that are equal parts scrappy and thorough. You dig beyond facts for true insights. You cull together these findings into decks and briefs that galvanize creatives into concepting.
You’re equal parts collaborative and independent. You own projects, brief teams, provide feedback and inspiration, and lead client presentations. You’re comfortable flexing between existing projects and new business pitches. You always think about the bigger picture, and identify ways to creatively and strategically grow our clients’ business.
You approach everything with a healthy dose of skepticism -- you never accept a brief as-is, and interrogate a problem from every angle. You’re not just a dreamer, you’re a doer. A thinker, as well as a creator. You believe that research is more than facts and numbers.

Skills

    • Planning and research smarts.
    • Solid writing, storytelling, presenting skills.
    • Ability to work in a fast-paced team environment, and juggle between clients and new business.
    • Curiosity, patience, enthusiasm, resilience.
    • Ability to write concisely and clearly.
    • Ability to analyze and summarize loads of information in a concise, clear manner.
    • Intuitive understanding of how to draw insight and data.

Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s degree required.
    • MBA or other advanced degree a plus.
    • 5-8 years’ experience in account planning or brand strategy.
