WHO WE ARE

The search is over. If you’re looking for an agency full of intelligent creatives who work on projects that make a difference, you’ve found us. At Environics Communications, we don’t cling onto the same ideas, tools, and “the way we’ve always done it.” The entrepreneurial and collaborative culture at Environics ensures our teams are creative, responsive, and absolutely driven by measurable results. We believe that exceptional work and having fun is the best path to a successful marketing agency. Two decades of continuous annual growth have proven that philosophy.

WHO YOU ARE

Ideally, you’re an excellent writer and verbal communicator. You know that the devil is in the details, and are extremely detail-oriented. You can juggle multiple projects simultaneously and take initiative. You’re comfortable conducting research and working on projects where you aren’t necessarily an expert on the subject matter. You’re conscientious and have a strong understanding of national media outlets. You’re big on digital marketing, and keep an eye on new trends. In other words, you’re in a hurry to be successful, for both your clients and your career success.

  • Educated. BA/BS in marketing, PR, communications or related field.

  • Experienced. 1-2+ years agency experience.

  • Whatever it takes. Proven ability to “get-the-job-done.” Agency life sometimes means late nights (…with work or happy hours).

  • Articulate. Strong writing skills with ability to communicate points-of-view succinctly, thoroughly, and convincingly.

  • Innovative. Creative and strategic thinker.

  • Friendly. We like to work with people we like.

  • Apple iOS savvy. We have beautiful Macbook Pros; we hope you know how to use one!
