Summary:

Creative Shop is a motley crew of adventurers, dreamers, idealists, entrepreneurs, misfits, designers, writers, inventors, data hackers and artists who are hungry for crafting new ideas. A crew whose mission is to inspire, provoke and serve the very industry that enables brands to connect to the people they care about while growing their business. We unreservedly believe that creativity is what drives innovation in every aspect of the modern world, disrupts industries, improves the status quo, and helps brands tell the stories of tomorrow to the right people at the right time. You belong in our tribe: If you think realistic is the most common path to mediocrity. If you are hungry to run fast, learn more, never be complacent. If the intersection of creativity and technology is what makes your blood run fast. If you believe data, tech and product innovation is fundamental in the creative process. If settling for good scares you and makes you itch. If you aren’t afraid to take what we have and make it 10x better. If you love brilliant debates on how to build and craft better stories. If constant change doesn’t bother you but excites you. If you aren’t afraid to put your hand up for the seemingly impossible assignments. If you want to work with a diverse bunch of creative misfits to tell stories that you weren’t able to tell before. If you love thinking and building prototypes and frameworks to lead the industry to better work for our platforms. If you can use technology as an enabler to tell stories in different ways. If you love brands and want to help them tell stories that speak their truth in the world. If you want to be part of a team that is leading the way in telling stories for the future. If you want to humbly lead the industry to create the best work of your (and their) life.
