Careers at
The Next Wave

Welcome,
prospective Co-Worker.

Welcome prospective co-worker.

Actually, co-worker is a bit misleading, since we don’t consider what we do work- it’s our passion. Changing the world by making people think, do, act, dream, through effective communications.

What we expect from you, before you even talk to us, is for you to have read Luke Sullivan’s amazing bible of advertising,“Hey Whipple, Squeeze This” and don’t worry, we expect everyone here to read it too, we’re not singling you out. You should probably also check out the company handbook: “Steal this Handbook” to make sure you think you’ll fit in. We know you’ve checked out our work, but you may also want to listen to our founder and chief creative officer talk about his advertising origin story- and what he thinks are the keys to breaking in to any agency positions on the A-List podcast.

We like self-starters, veterans, social activists, thought leaders, interesting people, who like to get things done. We’ve got the tools, hopefully, you’re bringing the talent. One of the things that’s different about our shop is that we are very hands on- shoot our own video, manage our own server, write our own plugins.

This is a place to make your mark.

Then, prepare an awesome cover letter/introductory email that sells us you. Not on how great you are, but, how our lives will improve if you become a member of our team. Make it amazing. Make it zing. Attached should be a resume- as a PDF, titled “[my_full_name_]resume.pdf and a PDF portfolio or weblink of work. If you don’t have a portfolio, make one, fake one, write a brief that blows us away, tell us what client you know you can bring in the door to support your paycheck.

Writing a brief is tough. Writing a great one is the stroke of genius. Impress us.

If you’re local- tell us your three favorite independent restaurants in Dayton.
We’d love to know what your three favorite movies are.
And, if you include links to what you think are the three greatest ads of all time- we’d love to see them.

Pay depends on experience. We’re very veteran friendly. We’re an open book company, hoping to become an ESOP. What’s important to us is attitude, team building, being an “ad person” (one who is fascinated by our craft and the practice of it.).

What positions do we have open? That changes, but, if you have mad skills, we always want to talk.

Typically, we like to hire people who are more of a generalist, someone who can wear multiple hats.
If you play an instrument- tell us. One of these days we may start a band.
