We live by the motto “listen, speak-up and collaborate with the world around you while creating amazing work.” Our teams thrive on the front-lines of our business, partnering closely with clients to provide the best strategic guidance and creative problem-solving possible. Acting as stewards of the work as it goes from initial idea to releasing it to the world, it’s our mission to meet client goals and deliver quality work that they love.
Our content team lives, eats and breathes culture, translating deep audience insights and cultural know-how into authentic, iconic brand voices and thumb-stopping content. We strive to make brands famous and loved by cultivating a community of members (not just fans), by collaborating with creative influencers to drive affinity and participation, and by creating irresistibly shareable ideas, content and campaigns.
We view data points as the building blocks to great insights and great work. Through analysis of cultural, behavioral, and audience data, we are able to generate new insights, inspire creative ideas, and make informed business decisions across all channels that lead to measurable success for our clients. We do this by staying smart with best in class tools and data sources. In addition, our data discipline is accompanied by a committed data science practice, allowing us to continually innovate and stay on top of the ever evolving digital landscape.
As SAOR for four brands, we have concepted and produced over 10,000 pieces of social content over the last 12 months, predominantly in our in-house studio. We make sure to get the most out of every shoot; to produce content that is as efficient as it is effective. We ideate and manage dozens of influencer partnerships per month. We know the power of influencers, and when, and how, they can be influential for brands.
The Big Spaceship strategy discipline is focused on understanding people. We get under the skin of how culture is affecting people and map behaviors to identify audience tensions that only your brands or products can resolve. Our approach is nimble, collaborative, analytical and creative. We love to go out and meet or observe consumers just as much as we like to dive into quantitative analysis.
Our technologists are platform agnostic specialists who aren’t afraid to find the best solutions for every business need. Whether it’s building a mobile application, a content-rich responsive website or an internal employee network, our work is built for scale, performance, and longevity.
UX and design at Big Spaceship comes down to a simple philosophy: what exactly is the user need that we are trying to solve? Meeting usability standards is table stakes for today’s brands. Big Spaceship strives to meet needs in the unique voice of the brand we are serving. We design to incorporate ways to remove pain points or create moments of delight. To support rapid innovation, UX and design at Big Spaceship will continue to move more towards rapid testing, and away from lengthy slideshow presentations. Understanding the customer’s needs will always be paramount. Platforms come and go, what is considered innovative today will be outdated soon. Paying attention to user needs will keep our clients successful - whatever the future holds.
Help us run a tight ship.
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.
We frequently invite interesting people from a variety of backgrounds to share their experience with us. These are extraordinary opportunities.
Bagel or egg log? The debate goes on.
The kitchen is well-stocked, and anything not labeled for personal use is fair game. The beer is almost never labeled.
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.
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.
