Head of Development

Southampton

Five by Five is an agency where technology is a driving force. We’ve used it to launch Call of Duty releases, send a beer and curry into space and create a world-first involving Google street view. You’re going to be spearheading what we do next. Working with clients that range from entertainment and retail to healthcare will give you the scope to flex your creative technological muscle, and you’ll have plenty of lab time to drive innovation and push boundaries. Add to this the opportunity to build, develop and inspire your team and it becomes a role where the only limit is your imagination. If you’ve substantial experience of heading up web technology development, ideally in a marcomms/digital agency and are ready for an amazing new challenge, let’s talk.

Client Director (12 Month Maternity Cover Contract)

Southampton

At Five by Five we create compelling campaigns that deliver brilliant results for our clients. It could be a Facebook or iPhone App, online, offline or ambient, but before we get to make amazing things for clients like Activision, GAP and CooperVision, we have to win them over. That’s where you’ll be the big hero. You’ll eat, sleep and drink their business, and you’ll understand their problem often before they know they have one. More importantly, you’ll have a whole arsenal of solutions just waiting to be unleashed. It’s more than just client relationship management. It’s about becoming someone whose ear they will bend for strategic advice and support. This is not a role for a novice. You’ll need a vast amount of agency experience, strong commercial acumen and a nose for a new business opportunity like no other.

Producer (12 Month Maternity Cover Contract)

Southampton

At Five by Five we love it when a big idea comes to life for our clients, such as Activision, Gap and CooperVision. But, who makes sure it all goes according to plan? That’ll be the Producer. A smooth operator, calm under pressure and able to juggle multiple project-shaped balls, you’ll be involved in campaigns from start to finish. That means managing client relationships, getting into the detail of what needs to be delivered and then managing internal teams to make it happen. You’ll bring a marcomms agency background with at least two years’ account or project management experience and strong commercial acumen, including knowledge of forecasting, costing projects and managing budgets.

A proven background in developing rich media adverts and expandables, experience of MediaMind and DoubleClick and a substantial understanding of AS2/AS3 coding. If this sounds like you, then we’ve got the perfect place for you to push some serious boundaries.

Here at Five by Five we produce groundbreaking, jaw-dropping digital campaigns for international names such as Activision, Bungie and Ubisoft. It’ll be up to you to develop rich media online advertising creative formats to spec, primarily in Flash, and for multiple languages in a broad range of formats and content types. This will include animation, video, data capture, dynamic content and user interaction across desktop, mobile and out of home advertising placements.

Along with the above, you’ll need solid animation skills, a sound grasp of video-editing apps and a strong knowledge of After Effects, Premiere and video encoders. All of which will be demonstrated in an impressive online portfolio. A top class commitment to getting every campaign up-and-running on schedule will also be essential.
