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 can 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.

Now accepting applications for Winter 2015 but our submissions are rolling and we’re always happy to receive your application

We like making things. We’re organizational freaks and don’t mind picking people’s brains. We poke holes and find solutions to impossible problems. We motivate and engage every discipline to get the best idea made for our client and ourselves. We also write a lot of documentation. As a producer intern, you’ll work with teams to keep tasks moving forward, help with budgets, scopes and learn the process of how a project goes from “request” to “live”. You’ll be on the front lines with us, holding down the fort.

What you need to know:
  • Internships usually run 3 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. Rather than an assigned mentor, defined assignments and a big final project, 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 or exceptional undergraduate students, but an internship shouldn’t be interpreted as a guaranteed way to get a job offer.
You will:
  • Multi-task constantly
  • Guide and motivate their teams in order to keep projects moving efficiently.
  • See projects through completion while handling managerial duties large or small – or both, depending on your level of experience.
When applying:
  • In 1-2 sentences, tell us why you want to work at Big Spaceship.
  • Please specify what kind of Internship you’re applying for in the Subject line and the Season (time frame) you’re applying for
  • In 200 characters, tell us about your last related experience.
  • In one sentence tell us what you did last night.
  • Please include a resume- We do not accept resumes as attachments. Instead please all materials as links – services like clouddropbox and drive are your friends. Do not include a cover letter.
  • 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.
  • Your resume must include a short objective defining why you are applying for a role with Big Spaceship and what you hope to learn from us.
  • Don’t be a robot.

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.
