PHANTOM PRODUCER (All levels)
Director, Senior, Mid-Weight, Junior
Who we’re looking for
With so many incredible projects and opportunities on the horizon, we have opportunities for Producers at all levels in our studio - from Junior to Lead.
A little about Phantom
We’re an independent digital creative agency headquartered here in London. We work hand with incredible clients including Google, Sony Music, The Financial Times, NBC Universal, Waze and Zendesk. We started with just 4 Phantoms in 2013 and have grown to over 80 in London (and 13 in Auckland, New Zealand!) since then.
We love being a young agency, excited everyday about what we do. Phantom is above all else a creative agency, but definitely not in the sense that we only care about making pretty things. Every single member of our team is an innovator, both creative and technical to the core. Together we truly have an incredible collection of skill and experience, collaborating with people and brands that have inspired us to do amazing work.
To us, it has always been obvious that the traditional agency structure is outdated for us achieve the work we pride ourselves on. Having founded Phantom from the studio floor, we understand and relate to every step and opportunity of a project. Phantom was built on the foundation that we would never lose sight of this and worked to create an agency focussed entirely from the perspective of the studio.
Why we need you
We work incredibly closely with our clients, to the point where it’s even a little weird calling them ‘clients’. We have a no-bullshit policy, meaning we have a completely transparent and honest relationship with them that fosters mutual feedback. We see you being in charge of day to day contact and delivery for our clients while being our studio team’s best friend while working on projects together.
Put simply, we want to do incredible work that we’re proud of and makes our clients love us. We live for it. Where there’s an innovative solution to be had or simple amends to complete, we should have tackled it even better than anyone could have imagined.
Our team of Producers are amazing and knowledgeable. With the number of incredible projects Phantom have on board, we could definitely do with a few extra hands. Our PMs are responsible for processes, resourcing and also have their own direct relationship with the client.
