Hello. We are Humanaut. We’re a freshly spawned creative agency with an unusual story. For starters we’re located in Chattanooga, TN and we’re backed by Alex Bogusky. Part ad agency, part startup laboratory. We’re exploring how technology and brands collide with humans. If you haven’t heard about us, read about our launch here. - http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/18/business/media/longtime-innovator-has-seed-money-for-new-ones.html?_r=1&

SEEKING: ACD Copywriter / Inventor

We’re looking for a seasoned Copywriter / ACD to join our small, quickly growing team. This is an opportunity to get outside the ad bubble and get back to making things, without the pencil wagging, politicking and layers of BS that you’re used to.

Our work ranges from SuperBowl spots to helping build and launch startups to conspiring to Unstuff Christmas.- http://www.fastcoexist.com/3023659/this-website-helps-you-avoid-a-holiday-gift-fail

Like any creative shop, we need someone who can name products, churn headlines, mine comedic script gold, build a killer deck, and present culture-shifting ideas to clients.

But more importantly we need rapid prototyping addicts and collaboration junkies willing to trade in their ego in order to get stuff done. More modern MacGuyver, less Agency Spy troll.

You will be expected to do heavy creative lifting, concepting, writing and lead projects from start to ship. You will work closely with our ECD, and help shape every piece of work that comes out of our shop, while also shaping culture. You must have a passion for tech, mobile, UX and design. And you will be expected to teach the craft of making to others.

If you're looking to venture into the unknown and help build something truly unique, in our mountain bike and trail run-lined little city, then hit us up.
