Why You’ll Love This Job:

We believe that what a brand does is more important than what it says—we want you to help brands do amazing, unprecedented, wild things, creating experiences that people never forget.

Why You’ll Love Doing It At Momentum:

Because the idea that a brand’s action is more important than its rhetoric is the key to our entire approach. It is all about the experience and we can—hands down, bar- none—create that better than anyone else. That’s not jargon or ego—it’s truth.

Experience creates the connections that lead to loyalty, advocacy and sales. So we imagine and create those things here, in what we call the Total Brand Experience. And how we do it is with genius, dedication, strategic thinking and working together as collective groups. Before you get any ideas, it’s important you know we’re serious about taking care of each other here. So think on that. We work too closely not to have fun together. We work too smart not to make the world better. And we work too well not to continually push for more. Think on all that, too.
