We’re not your average agency. We work hard but don’t take ourselves too seriously.We’re a tight knit team of gif loving, franglais-speaking, meme making, Rakers, who collaborate to do great things. We don’t just make people want things, we make things people want.

  • Present your work to clients with passion and enthusiasm; selling your ideas with conviction;
  • Innovate  with new methods and technologies to connect with consumers in meaningful ways;

You Have:

  • Experience working on 360 campaigns (TV or online film, out of home, web campaigns, social);

  • A portfolio brimming with great creative ideas;

  • Strong understanding of the design process;

  • Excellent communication skills in English and French;

  • The ability to juggle multiple projects and know how to prioritize;

  • Experience with retail clients (nice-to-have).

You Are:

  • A team player, who loves sharing ideas and knowledge with others;

  • An eternal optimist;

  • An easy going, light-hearted person who doesn’t take yourself too seriously;

  • Able to stay cool as a cucumber... even when deadlines are looming.
