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 - 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 Creative Strategist, you'll be an essential team member tasked with inspiring and influencing Creative Agencies and how they build strategies, concept ideas and execute campaigns on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and the next set of Facebook ad platforms.

We are looking for someone with deep creative agency experience. You must possess an empathy for creative agencies and a strong bias toward culture changing and convention challenging work. We seek creative people with credibility, who have been at the top of their game and want to help lead Creative Agencies into the mobile first world from a perspective of partnership and humility. You collaborate easily with teams of all kinds and aim to become a sought out secret weapon for agencies. Ready to help but also to lead when necessary, you must instill trust and goodwill and look to stand up for Agency interests within Facebook. You actively seek out tools and processes to give your partners an advantage and look to leverage Facebook for any and all resources on behalf of your agency.

You will do this by co-developing industry-changing campaign work, building scalable programs, crafting industry-leading thought pieces, as well as helping to shape the core Facebook and Instagram advertising products and platforms. You'll go deep with a set of world-class agencies, as well as scale by positively influencing thousands of others. You and your team will be some of the first to build with the latest ad products. Your leadership will help shape the Facebook Awards and you'll be relied upon to help author the stories directed at the creative community. 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, do'er, and live to create ideas that will impact a billion + people and millions of brands. This is a full-time position based in our Tokyo office.
