We are Kairos, an award-winning team of over 100, and with a newly launched office in New York we’re looking for aspiring social natives to help take the Kairos brand to new heights!

Founded by our ‘30 under 30 co-founders’, we now operate globally with headquarters in London, England and a second studio in Manchester, Kairos is now expanding its physical presence into the US. We are specialists in digital marketing, experts in social media and gamers at heart, but that hasn’t stopped us from working with the biggest non-gaming brands in the world helping them to reach their audiences digitally.

Samsung, Epic Games, Activision, KFC, JBL, Pizza Hut, Cetaphil, these are just some of the brands we work with daily and we need creative, strategic, data-led individuals to help shape award-winning campaigns that keep them coming back for more!

Want to join the team, here are our three non-negotiables.

  • Input – Join in, take part, be heard and contribute, team members looking for an easy ride won’t succeed here.
  • Output – Focus on quality, if you’re not happy with what we’re creating then stop and ask why. Everything we create should be good enough for your portfolio.
  • Together – Most importantly, do it together! Not feeling it, that’s okay we’re one team and support each other every step of the way. No egos. No judgment.

What’s it like in the New York office?

  • Startup culture in a larger agency group. Our New York office will be the starting point for Kairos in the US. We’ll be a startup business with the backing of a well-established agency in the UK, giving us the best of both worlds.
  • Hybrid culture – As a start-up in the US we know the importance of face time regularly. We equally understand the importance of flexibility. Our US team will be required in the office 3 days a week minimum.
