Are you a budding designer or art director? Maybe at this point, it’s unclear which one you want to be when you grow up, but you’re willing to dig in and do the work to find out. While you might not have a perfectly polished portfolio, you’re proactive enough to have something that showcases your creativity—an ad-like object, a brochure, a sketch of a brilliant idea, a website you did for your Uncle Frank. Whatever it is, you can clearly communicate its origin and explain your thinking behind it. You’re a roll-up-your-sleeves self-starter who’s built for solving complex communication problems through visual elements. You have a willingness to partner with whomever it takes to get the job done and believe there’s nothing more exciting than that moment you land on a brilliant idea. Will you have that moment here? Let’s find out.

We’re Hothouse, a marketing agency in the ATL with 18 years of success under our belt. We’ve got all kinds of clients, which means we do all kinds of everything. Branding, digital, social, video, packaging, experiential. If it drives demand, we’ve probably created it. Our roster includes brands like NBCUniversal, Disney, ESPN, Mercedes-Benz, SHOWTIME and Deloitte—plus local neighbors like Georgia’s Own Credit Union, Craneware, PrimeRevenue and non-profit Girl Talk. We’re nice people. And it’s important to us that we keep it that way. We’ve created a culture of collaboration, respect and innovation, but something is missing. And that something is you.

Great team filled with funny, really good-looking people • Innovative technology • Vibrant location in O4W across from Ponce City Market and adjacent to Beltline • Hothouse Culture Club organizes fun company events and programs throughout the year • Career advancement opportunities and coaching.
