Creative Lead, Lockdown

Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities â€" we're just getting started.

Come be part of the creative team at Facebook that is leading the industry in new ways to build advertising ideas in the rapidly changing media, mobile and marketing world. As a Lockdown Lead, you’ll be leading a team tasked with concepting and shipping ideas that support the Facebook mission to build community and bring the world closer together. You will do this by developing and co-developing lighthouse ideas that astound communities and bring people together in the real world as well as on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and the next set of Facebook ad platforms. You’ll go deep with a set of world-class brands and agency partners, as well as scale by positively influencing thousands of others.
You have experience working inside prolific, culture changing creative ecosystems and feel called to transform the industry by example. You must have a high bar, great creative taste and the work to prove it. You are entrepreneurial and see the role of brands and marketing as a positive influence on culture. You can inspire a room of CEOs as well as the in-house or agency designer. The role will go from zoomed out-ideating new global marketing systems that can work on our platform to zoomed in-rolling up sleeves and shipping work with agencies as well as bespoke work from scratch. In this role you will be a confidante, a go-to partner for CMOs and CEOs who need to know what's great and what's next. You are strategic, charming and passionate. A born collaborator and builder who can work with partners to reinvent the global connectedness of their creative and media infrastructures.
You and the team you manage will be some of the first to build with the latest ad products. Your passion for provocative, smart, creative ideas along with your skills as a builder will be a great addition to the superpowers of this team. You’re a builder, doer, and live to create ideas and transform them into actual events, experiences and movements that will impact a billion + people and millions of brands. This is a full-time position based in our New York office.

We're still only 1% done at Facebook - this team is inventing every day and it takes tenacity, bravery and the ability to see the big opportunities to thrive here
