1. Take care of each other

2. Collaborate

3. Produce amazing work

4. Speak up

Four values define the Big Spaceship experience and institutionalize our culture of shared ownership, which consistently produces outstanding, effective work. They foster a relaxed environment where all employees feel comfortable punching above their weight. As an organization with minimal hierarchy, you can feel confident suggesting the outlandish—we’ve got your back.

For a recent hack day, a few folks wrote and illustrated a book explaining the way we work in detail. It’s called Our Manual.

In addition to getting to work with friendly people in the greatest borough in the greatest city in the world, we offer a wide range of professional perks. We’re proud to have been named one of AdAge’s Best Places to Work for three years in a row.

BASICS

  • Health, Dental, Vision Insurance
  • Transit Check
  • Generous PTO
  • Office closed between Christmas & New Years

SHOW & TELL

We frequently invite interesting people from a variety of backgrounds to share their experience with us. These are extraordinary opportunities.

FRIDAY BREAKFAST

Bagel or egg log? The debate goes on.

SNACKS, BEER & HOT SAUCE

The kitchen is well-stocked, and anything not labeled for personal use is fair game. The beer is almost never labeled.

HACK DAYS

The world was made to be hacked, and our hack day is one of the most beloved Big Spaceship traditions. Every so often, we pause all our usual work and break into small teams. Then we spend all day (and all night) creating something that makes the world a better place. The next morning, everyone presents what they’ve made. It’s something you’ll never forget.

RUN CLUB / WHISKEY CLUB

Work hard, play hard.

We don’t segregate people by department. Instead, you’ll sit with the other people who are working on your project. This means you’ll have daily contact with some of the most talented strategists, designers and technologists in the business.

We often say “we love professionals, we hate professionalism.” We’re not big on offices or hierarchy, but we are big on collaboration and straight talk. Like our Brooklyn home, we’re friendly, we’re playful and sometimes we break the rules. We’re an independent bunch, and we look for disciplined self-starters.

Social Content

Submissions are rolling and we’re always happy to receive your application.

Big Spaceship is looking for an intern to join our Social Media team, known to once-in-a-while communicate solely in gifs. This is a great opportunity for a quick-witted wordsmith with outstanding collaboration skills.

A little bit about you: You live on the internet and love a good pun. You’re an excellent researcher, good at articulating your findings, a passionate presenter, and brimming with good ideas. When a major event happens, you are one of the first of your friends to know. You pride yourself on understanding the humor of various cultures (and subcultures) on social media. You think unnecessary words are the worst. “Break the internet” is something you’ve been talking about since like, 2012.

A little bit about us: We treat our interns like any other member of our crew. You’ll be fully integrated onto one of our client teams, and get your hands dirty from day one.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Copywrite social content across channels such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest

  • Create strategy presentations in collaboration with other members of the team

  • Monitor social trends and contribute ideas during brainstorms

  • Perform a lot of research really quickly on digital behaviors to inform content

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Experience managing social media accounts for clients (writing in the voice of different brands) preferred

  • In-depth knowledge of social media platforms and how they can be applied across verticals

  • An enthusiasm for social media and an ability/interest in staying ahead of emerging trends

  • Degree in Communications, Marketing or related field

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • This Internship will run between 3-6 months

  • You will work a regular 40 hour work week (Monday-Friday, 10am-7pm).

  • We provide a base stipend starting at $400 per week

  • Securing housing is up to you, but we’re happy to give you some suggestions on neighborhoods.

  • Non-US residents must arrange for a student visa and sponsorship independently (we can offer recommendations for sponsoring organizations)

  • Our internship program probably shouldn’t be called a program. We throw you right into the action and let you learn hands on. Proactivity is a must.

  • Internships are intended for recent grads who hold less than 8 months experience in the job swimming pool – Graduate students (and beyond) are free to apply, but an internship shouldn’t be interpreted as a way to get a job offer.

HOW TO APPLY:

  • Tell us about yourself in one compelling sentence.

  • In 1-2 sentences, tell us why you want to work at Big Spaceship.

  • Please include a link to something you’ve made that you’re proud of so we can get a sense of your voice and how you work (ie: a zine you published, a class project you led, a cooking blog, an article you’ve written…)

  • We work on the internet so please pass along links to your social handles.

  • We’re flexible, but if you have strict start/end dates, please let us know.

  • Please include your resume but we do not accept resumes or portfolios as attachments. Instead please send all materials as links – services like cloud, dropbox and drive are your friends. Make sure the share settings allow anyone to view.

Strategy

Submissions are rolling and we’re always happy to receive your application.

We’re looking for a strategy intern who is excited about tackling new grounds and passionate about solving complex brand challenges; someone who is obsessed with the why and the how of things.

You are curious and fascinated by human behavior. You are positive, proactive and naturally at home in a fast-paced, team-motivated environment. You have strong writing and presentation skills. You have a talent for inspiring confidence and collaboration. You know how to express and reframe complex ideas in straightforward yet elegant terms for the benefit of internal teams and client discussion.

We are always working a mile a minute. If you join our crew,  you will multi-task constantly, working on many projects rather than being assigned to one team. You will collaborate with members of all disciplines, not just strategists. You will use effective research and behavior mapping techniques to help you and your team get to actionable insights and produce innovative ideas. You will take part in brainstorms and learn how to build conceptual narratives. You will have the chance to work on a variety of projects from new business pitches to client campaigns.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • Internships run between 3-6 months, on a quarterly basis based on the amount of work we have available.
  • You will work a regular 40 hour work week (Monday-Friday, 10am-7pm).
  • We provide a base stipend starting at $400 per week
  • Securing housing is up to you, but we’re happy to give you some suggestions on neighborhoods.
  • Non-US residents must arrange for a student visa and sponsorship independently (we can offer recommendations for sponsoring organizations)
  • Our internship program probably shouldn’t be called a program. We throw you right into the action and let you learn hands on. Proactivity is a must.
  • It’s mighty competitive — we get hundreds of applicants and take just one intern at a time.
  • Internships are intended for recent grads who hold less than 8 months experience in the job swimming pool – Graduate students (and beyond) are free to apply, but an internship shouldn’t be interpreted as a way to get a job offer.

WHEN APPLYING:

  • In 1-2 sentences, tell us why you want to work at Big Spaceship as a strategy intern
  • Tell us about yourself in one compelling sentence.
  • Please include a link to something you’ve made that you’re proud of so we can get a sense of your voice and how you work (ie: a zine you published, a class project you led, a cooking blog, an article you’ve written…)
  • We work on the internet so please pass along links to relevant pieces of your online persona (portfolio, Website, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.)
  • Please do not include a cover letter, instead tell us a little bit about yourself in the body of your email.
  • We’re flexible, but if you have strict start/end dates, please let us know
  • We do not accept resumes or portfolios as attachments. Instead please send all materials as links – services like cloud, dropbox and drive are your friends.
