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. You may be a marketer/designer hybrid who loves crowdsourcing. Or a social media pro who brainstorms brand partnerships between meetings. And you’d definitely need to be a creative who understands the power of big data.

Since the business of human engagement is filled with infinite possibilities, we look for employees that are too. 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.
