Creative Director

Creative Director's Mission

Hi. We’re Jam3, a design and experience agency. We help modern brands launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from around the world. We have Strategy, Creative, Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process.

If you like making good things even better you’ll fit right in.

As our new Creative Director, you will participate in leading a Cannes Lion winning Creative Department, helping us push our productions to the next level.

You’ll be responsible for providing creative direction on brilliant executions for our clients worldwide. We're project-based, so we're always working with someone interesting,  be it adidas, Facebook, Google, Oculus,  Netflix, or Diageo

Read on for details! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
