Careers

We hire great people to do great work.

We come to work every day to solve challenges, and we lean on our teammates to do it. We all have titles, but we’re not defined by them. By working together and bending our disciplines, we bring unique perspectives to the table, learn from each other, and ultimately, stick the landing.

We have six guiding principles that help keep us grounded along the way:

Be Better.
We strive for unicorn-level greatness.

Own It.
We care about what we create.

Think Beyond.
We outsmart challenges with creative and forward thinking.

Get Real.
We dare to show up as ourselves.

Team Up.
We take the carpool lane, working together to achieve the best results.

All In.
We make it count. Every day.

 
Strategist
Closes: Jul 17

At zag, we know all good things start with strategy. That’s how we make sure every campaign, social post and line of copy is expertly crafted and aligned with purpose. To that end, we’re looking to add +1 to our strategy team! Strategists are responsible for developing solutions to meet clients’ objectives based on research, consumer insight and data. If you’re an expert organizer who is highly effective at staying on top of multiple projects, exercising proactive thinking skills and possesses some exceptional verbal and written communication skills and strong attention to detail — you sound perfect. Can we chat?

Key activities include:

  • Provide sound and responsible strategic solutions and planning
  • Create well-researched brand identities that incorporate in-depth brand and market knowledge, personas, organizational processes and competitive analysis
  • Assist in campaign measurement to ensure clients and agency are aligned on key performance metrics and realistic goals
  • Help provide accountability through reporting and analytical-based insights

As a Strategist, you’ll ensure the agency provides work that exceeds clients’ expectations by constantly and consistently adapting and anticipating industry trends and delivering a superior product. You’ll report to the Co-Creative Directors and work closely with internal team members involved on assigned agency clients. Work will take place in the Edmonton office but you can be located anywhere.

We’re looking for a candidate with a minimum of 5 years under their belt, experience working at other agencies or firms, copywriting know-how, and an eagle eye for all things words (punctuation, spelling, etc.).

If you’re an experienced Strategist willing to work hard on behalf of our clients and team, send your resume to careers@atozag.ca and tell us why you’re our next great hire.

Short listed applicants will be contacted for interviews.

Account Manager
Closes: Jul 17

We’re looking for an Account Manager who is a mix of a seasoned circus performer juggling blowtorches and an expert organizer with their own Netflix series. If you’re a professional multi-tasker whose skills can maintain and grow our clients’ businesses on an ongoing and project basis, you may fit the bill! As an Account Manager, you’ll use your strong analytical thinking and communication skills to synthesize, develop and present clear and concise recommendations in a way that not only articulates the agency’s point of view but also respects the best interests of and delivers value to the client.

The Account Manager of zag’s dreams has 3–5 years of experience with a demonstrated track record of not just meeting challenges — but anticipating them and moving swiftly to execute plans. Experience in the hospitality industry is an asset, as it’s a vertical we are focusing on and growing.
