Associate Creative Director
Cambridge, MA 

We are looking for a passionate, driven, talented, selfless Associate Creative Director to join and lead one of our creative teams.


  • Have at least 8 years of experience (agency or design studio preferred).
  • Are a digital native with experience across multiple channels and mediums.
  • Have a “nothing is impossible” attitude and approach.
  • Are serious about great creative but don’t take yourself too seriously.
  • Have an ability to concept at a high level and then execute on that idea. (this is a player-coach role…you will still be designing/writing on a daily basis)
  • Put the team and the work above self.
  • Have managed staff.
  • Have experience pitching and selling in new concepts, ideas, campaigns.
  • Look at every project, no matter its budget or scope, as an opportunity.
  • Are a dot-connector and collaborator.
  • Aren’t afraid of difficult conversations when needed.
  • Are adventurous with a valid passport (getting there out and experiencing the world is part of the gig).


  • Have creative teams globally, each one working on different parts of the business. You will join a family of amazing designers, writers, videographers, UX specialists, project managers, producers, illustrators…the list goes on.
  • Work (globally) on everything from ad campaigns to catalogs to websites and apps to magazines to designing backpacks from scratch (and a million other things). It’s a huge range of work that spans every channel, medium, space, experience. For a taste of some of what we’ve made, and to learn more about creative at EF, check out:
