We are looking for an experienced Interactive Director that has pushed creativity in the interactive space and built visually evocative digital products.
Moxie Sozo is an independent branding agency based in Boulder, Colorado. We believe in the power of art in branding. To us, interactive projects are digital sculptures — user experiences to be molded and shaped, design worlds to crawl into and explore, commercial journeys transformed by storytelling — unforgettable brand experiences that stimulate the intellect and stir the soul. Clients hire us to pursue unconventional ideas and to push the creative boundaries beyond the traditional norms.
That’s where you come in; because, that’s the type of work you have a track record of creating. We are looking for a candidate with vision. Someone who questions what’s possible and wants to push limits. More specifically, you’ll be hired to manage the full interactive product development lifecycle — from scoping a project to overseeing its flawless, stunning execution. You’ll work with both our internal team and 3rd Party partners on projects ranging from the simple to the simply extraordinary.
You should have the innate ability to understand a client’s needs and the technical requirements to achieve their (and our) goals. You should be willing to dive deep when needed, move rapidly with a bias for action, and get things done. You should revel in an entrepreneurial spirit, know how to deliver, and long for the opportunity to build creative solutions to challenging problems.
