Job position - Creative Producer (pet company)

About the job

Who We Are

Pelsbarn is born from a mission to change the landscape of pet care, providing dogs and their humans with honest, smart, and simple care – a new proposition in an industry riddled with manipulative and misleading marketing. We’re starting by radically improving the $100 billion pet market, replacing bulk bags of highly-processed pellets with a personalized subscription service that sends healthy, freshly-made dog food, balanced by top veterinary nutritionists,directly to customers’ doors. Our ultimate goal is to create innovative, honest, and delightful experiences across all aspects of pet care, and we believe our direct-to-consumer business model, holistic approach to growth, and dynamic and forward-thinking culture uniquely position us to shepherd this backwards industry into the future.

To date, Pelsbarn has delivered hundreds of thousands of pet products nationwide. Join us as we continue to develop ways of bringing peace of mind to our customers, health to their companions, and much-needed change to the way people care for their pets.

Where You'll Come In

In order for our mission to succeed, we need to speak to dog owners with insightful, personal content that makes clear and persuasive arguments for better quality dog products and gives our brand a unique, compelling voice in the category (and beyond). We’re building a best-in-class in-house creative team to strategize, ideate, and execute campaigns and always-on advertising. As a critical part of this team, we’re looking for a passionate, hyper-organized, and dog-loving producer. The work you help create will help grow our business and our brand, and will help dogs everywhere live healthier, happier lives.

How You'll Make An Impact

  • Bring creative ideas to life — you’ll work closely with art directors and copywriters to find solutions for how to take scripts, concepts, and content from words on a page to compelling real-world deliverables that fulfill briefs.
  • Deliver across multiple production disciplines including photography, commercial + video production, and experiential activations.
  • Develop production timelines and manage schedules for concepting, pre-production, production, post, and delivery, shepherding the work through approvals and ensuring that deadlines are met.
  • Source and lead interaction with directors and production partners; oversee treatments, communicate with casting agents, actors, editors, post production vendors, and other partners, ensuring strong collaboration and that the creative is executed to the highest standard within all third-party relationships.
  • Find creative production approaches for social assets and other lower-funnel paid media that allow us to shoot, edit, and deliver work quickly according to performance needs and/or cultural touchstone moments.
  • Manage production budgets, working closely with members of the brand operations group, finance, and acquisition to ensure that bids are competitive, fees are fairly negotiated, incremental costs are discussed with clarity and alignment, and all payments are made on time and in the proper manner.
  • Manage usage and licensing, including talent, music, and VO.

  • We're Excited About You Because

  • You have 2+ years of experience as a creative producer within an agency and/or in-house team. A portfolio with creative, relevant work is required.
  • You have managed, whether directly or indirectly, more junior members of a team and are a master at balancing delegation with careful oversight. You’re also an expert at managing cross-functional or external partners — you know how to reinforce requirements, approvals, and deadlines while also listening to stakeholders and being flexible/adapting where necessary.
  • A broad awareness of production partners and the landscape of directors, DPs, editors, post production houses, and beyond to ensure the best possible team is assembled for any given project.
  • You’re as comfortable working on high-investment projects as you are with small scrappy shoots.
  • You're media and cultural savvy — you know the best way to deliver the best idea.
  • You're adaptable to different working styles, mindsets, and personalities, showcasing a willingness to collaborate with all.

  • Remote Guidelines

    We ask all team members to join our weekly team meeting call at 10AM EST to build a collaborative and invested environment to foster our unique in-person culture we are proud to have. 

    Our Philosophy

    Our company’s mission is rooted in deep, genuine care for dogs – and for the people who love them. As an organization we are full of individuals who are unique in many ways, but all united in a mission of providing true peace of mind to dog lovers everywhere.

    Fixing this industry and improving the lives of pets and their people will be a difficult, decades-long endeavor. We believe the best use of our time, energy, and resources as a collective team is to focus on this mission, and on supporting our team to do their best work and be their best selves. In support of this we’re committed to hiring and supporting a diverse workforce, and investing in internal structures, opportunities, hiring/promotions processes, and training that create and sustain an inclusive team. We strive to provide an experience at Pelsbarn that will be invested, meaningful and memorable as we progress on the journey to reimagine how we take care for our pets.
