On Premise Activation Specialist - Cleveland, OH
Inspira isn't your typical experiential agency.
In fact, you might say that we're a bit out there.
We're physically out there - creating personal connections between people and brands through real-life experiences.
We're out there in our approach - leveraging our network across the country to get real-time insights that help us create out-there ideas that drive measurable business results.
But, being out there isn't just what we do - it's who we hire. We hire people who share our optimistic, engaging, people-first point of view. These professionals aren't afraid to share their bold ideas and be out there with us.
So, what drives us to be out there? Our mission. We deliver award-winning campaigns for clients such as Microsoft, Diageo, and Life is Good - all while devoting a portion of our profits towards finding a cure for pediatric cancer.
Are you passionate about spirits? Do you want an opportunity to represent some of the top brands in the industry? Do you love meeting new people, sharing your knowledge and influencing people to be better-informed?
If so, join our team!
