Full Time Job
BuzzFeed is seeking an associate creative producer to create custom branded content on BuzzFeed.com and social platforms. We're seeking a creative-minded writer who is passionate about both digital media and native advertising. Candidates should be interested in what makes someone share and how people communicate online and solve problems for BuzzFeed's brand partners.
Primarily, this position is focused on writing and producing exciting advertising that is just as delightful, interesting, original, and engaging as BuzzFeed's editorial content.

Mostly we're looking for people from a variety of backgrounds who are optimistic, energetic, and imaginative to join a fun and growing team at the vanguard of an incredibly exciting global shift in advertising.
