General Summary

Team One, a division of Saatchi & Saatchi, is a full-service, advertising agency specializing in aspirational brands headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with offices in Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Dallas.

With its very first marketing campaign in 1987, Team One was responsible for one of the most notable brand launches in history and helped to make Lexus the automotive industry’s greatest success story. In addition to Lexus and the Lexus Dealer Association, Team One has a diverse portfolio focusing on aspirational brands, which has included Dacor, The Ritz-Carlton, Haagen-Dazs International, Indian Motorcycle and 2K Games.

You will have the opportunity to become immersed in the craft of creating marketing and communication solutions for a global roster of high-profile clients. At Team One, every facet of brand communications is developed under one roof, from broadcast television to Web development to branded events and experiences.

Creating an environment that inspires great ideas is something we’re pretty passionate about. So we are thrilled to say we’ve placed #27 (out of 50 U.S.-based advertising and media companies!) in Advertising Age’s Best Places to Work AND #53 (out of 100 U.S.-based companies!) in Outside magazine’s Best Places to Work. These are national awards that are dedicated to celebrating the best and most dynamic work experiences across the country.
