Producer - Contract

Overview


Note: this is a contract position. We are looking for candidates with availability and interest in contracting between October to January. There’s the potential for longer-term work for the right candidate!

Some people say that producers are the unsung heroes of the agency world. At MetaLab, we say, “Sing it louder for the people in the back!” You’re not in the design or engineering files, but you’re the superglue that holds it all together. Never losing sight of the big picture or the fine details, you successfully navigate any curve balls thrown your way. Your masterful command of effective communication and problem-solving impresses even the most challenging of clients. Balancing patience and empathy with diplomacy and determination, your leadership skills create an environment for high performing teams. You understand the value of collaboration and have a vested interest in helping everyone across the finish line. You step in and up wherever support is needed, and you’re the fearless advocate that everybody loves to love.
