New York City

Day One Agency—AdAge's Social and Influencer Agency of the Year—is hiring! We’re looking for a VP, Marketing to join our rising team. The right candidate will be ambitious, hard-working, and dedicated to telling stories that stop people in their scroll.

Day One has built a reputation for impactful storytelling that drives, impacts, and earns cultural recognition for our brand partners. We developed an agency team that truly thinks audience and consumer first—we believe in ideas that can move the world by stopping it in its scroll.
