Careers

We're looking for people ambitious enough to help us reinvent the advertising industry, and humble enough to know what they don't know. If you're always the most curious person in the room, we'd love to meet you!

Creative Director – Remote

Hello! Ready Set makes live-action video ads for social media at scale via a SaaS product called Ready Set Video Ad Cloud. We bridge the gap between stock-y animated ads and expensive, ad agency-driven spots, providing high-concept creative for a fraction of the cost. We’re looking for curious, ambitious, humble people to help us accelerate our growth. If you like freedom at work and getting things done, we’d love to meet you!

The Opportunity at Ready Set

We are looking for an exceptional, contrarian Creative Director to join us in our mission to become the world’s biggest library of live-action video ads.

What You’ll Do: Oversee all creative development for our fast-growing roster of international clients. You’ll:

  • Work with clients to understand their brand and develop a series of strategic approaches to the work.
  • Develop tons of short, creative scripts to shoot for clients.
  • Be the director on set as we shoot the ads, as often as monthly (LA + potentially Toronto)
  • Oversee the creative through post-production, using Vimeo Review.
  • Get to know our clients, iterating each quarter to zero in on what’s working best.

What You Bring:

  • Enthusiasm, scrappiness and a love for moving fast. You’re a prolific creative, capable of coming up with a lot of ideas and working a lot of different spots in post. This is the opposite of noodling on 1-3 ads for 3 months.
  • Empathy, especially for our clients and their business.


A Day in the Life:

At Ready Set, we all pitch in to make things happen even when they don’t fall squarely within this job description. Though every role has its rewards and compelling aspects, we all commit to following through on the less interesting and sometimes tedious parts of the job. In this role, a few examples of some of the less exciting activities include:

  • Putting Vimeo Review comments on the same spot, 4th round of revisions asking again to move the type left 20%.
  • Having to come up with hundreds of ideas a month for various clients, even when you think you may be out of them.
  • Being open to feedback
  • Being open to giving feedback

Ready Set’s vision is to build a new advertising industry from the ground up. We are at 14 clients out of the gate, profitable, and growing fast! If you are interested in this role, please include a note with three reasons why you are excited about the opportunity. Email [email protected]. We look forward to getting to know you!
