Wanted: exceptional humans

A human experience agency runs on – you guessed it – humans. But not just any humans. Exceptional, smart, nice, curious humans who are hungry for answers and full of ideas.

A career at Luckie is not about having a typical background: It’s about the marketer/designer hybrid who loves crowdsourcing. And about the social media pro who brainstorms brand partnerships between meetings. And the creative who understands the power of big data.

The business of human engagement isn’t a cut-and-dried one, and our jack-of-all-trades employees are the people who prove it. It’s a good time to be at Luckie. Plus, there are doughnuts.

Think you’ve got something (or a lot of things) to bring to the table? Let’s talk.
