That is our purpose at Mosaic.

We deliver game-changing experiences for leading global brands that have the power to impact human behavior. Driven by emotion, measured by action, we build big ideas #IRL. And we want your help.

Today, we’re looking for a new visionary to take our purpose to the next level. To inspire thinking. To innovate in spaces we haven’t yet explored. To help foster a culture of passion and excitement.

This new leader will be at the helm of an award winning team of creatives – from designers, to generalists, to producers, and beyond – while also playing a key role in the entire agency leadership and operation. They will be the face of Mosaic for leading brands. They will help propel us forward – because we don’t simply want to ride the wave; we want to make it.

We believe this type of vision can come from anywhere. Traditional creative. Big brands. Innovation companies. Anywhere – let’s talk.
