Creative Ads Director Los Angeles, CA

“Virality is not an accident. It is engineered.”

—Ryan Holiday


THE COMPANY

Jumpcut is a Y Combinator and venture-backed startup that creates cinematic online courses with the world’s biggest influencers.

The founding team at Jumpcut has years of experience creating binge-worthy content — we’ve created multiple viral YouTube channels that now have over 4.5 million subscribers and over 500 million views. We’re now taking that content creation experience and applying it to the monotonous world of online education.

If you’ve ever taken an online course, you already know that 99% of them suck. That’s because they all do the same thing: record a dry and uninspiring instructor who talks to the camera for hours on end. While this is fantastic for getting over an Ambien addiction, it’s atrocious for actual learning.

Think about what can be done with video: we have the ability to create things like Avatar, The Dark Knight, and Game of Thrones, but the status quo when it comes to online courses is this. In an ice cream parlor of unlimited flavors, every other online education company has opted for vanilla. We have our eye on the mint triple chocolate chip birthday cake cookie dough with strawberry whipped cream and banana nut sprinkles.

Our team is approaching online learning in a completely new way: combining educational content with compelling stories, captivating cinematography, creative soundtracks, and much more. The result is a beautiful course that feels like a movie. We believe the future of education lies in creating world-class content.

JOB SUMMARY

Do you like poop? Of course you don’t. But apparently, many people do. This is exemplified by two of the most viral internet ads of our generation: Poo-pourri and Squatty Potty (look it up).

We are looking for someone who is clever, creative, and a little messed up in the head to be our Creative Ads Director and to create similar advertising experiences for our potential customers.

Your responsibilities will be centered around brainstorming, writing, and creating ads that convert to sales and--more importantly--have the potential to go viral. We’re currently operating mostly on YouTube and Facebook, but we’ll need your help in expanding to other platforms as well.

We do NOT require advertising experience - our team is made up of viral video experts who have generated over 1 billion organic views, and we will help you develop the skills to do that from scratch. With that said, you need to have a natural ability to break down viral content and backwards-engineer what has worked for other big ads in the past.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Obsession with marketing and virality
  • Familiar with content creation on social media platforms (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.)
  • Genuine curiosity for how companies grow via paid ads (e.g. Dollar Shave Club, Purple Mattresses, Squatty Potty, etc)
  • A constant learner (e.g. you like to take online courses in your free time)
