Greg Hunter, GCD at Firehouse in Dallas, is on the hunt for a Senior Writer. From Greg: “Firehouse is looking for a Senior Writer. We don’t care about the exact number of years you have under your belt, if your resume is full of super sexy, well-known brands or whether you’ve executed in whatever the trendiest medium of the moment is.

From Alex: “So you’re fresh out of school with the beginnings of a killer portfolio and a love for advertising. Or maybe you’ve been in the industry for a few years and are looking for a change of scenery. You see a lot of cringe-worthy ads out there, and long for the day when you can make them better.

- 1-2 years of agency experience preferred (but if you’re a recent grad with a promising book and can convince us you have the chops to thrive in this industry, we’re listening).
- Ability to think conceptually as well as write creatively and informatively.
- Ability to work on global accounts as well as startup brands.
- An environment that actually encourages work-life balance. No, really.
- Opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a fast-growing agency.”
