Posted 27.01.2016

Running Pony has two new job opportunities available: 

Director of Client & Creative Services

Providing outstanding service and creative solutions to our clients is a vital part of our success. That’s why Running Pony is looking for someone to lead our Client Services team, and work hand-in-hand with our Creative team, to dazzle and delight clients.

What do you need to be considered for this position?  7+ years of relevant experience is preferred. Beyond that, be a detail-oriented team player and a massive multi-tasker with a passion to do the impossible.

In this position, you’ll supervise the Client Services team as they work with existing clients, and as they seek to develop new clients, new opportunities, and new projects. And you’ll serve as a “bridge” between our Client Services and Creative teams, making sure projects are handled efficiently, effectively and cooperatively.

You’ll also work directly with a select group of clients of your own. You’ll make them look like heroes to their bosses and be their hero for the amazing work you deliver.

What can Running Pony offer you besides a paycheck?  Imagine a place where people actually like each other.  I know, right?  Our business is fast-paced, but it all works because Running Pony is a good place to be.  We care about each other, and the whole family analogy is more than an act. We are known for our work, but one of the things we’re most proud of is that we genuinely like what we do and the people we do it with. Plus, we’re committed to spending time making our community a better place to live.
Please have: Experience as a supervisor or team leader in an account service, sales, or creative department and a proven ability to learn complicated processes outside your area of expertise.
Know This Too And We’d Definitely Like To Talk: A background in video production or advertising/p.r. is preferred…a proven track record of building successful professional relationships is even better.
What Do You Get?: This is a full-time salaried gig, with benefits including health insurance coverage for you and all your dependents-we pay 100% of all your premiums, disability insurance, and 401K with employer match.
We Make Ideas Move: See what you’re getting into here:

How to Apply: RUSH your resume, references, and salary history to info [at] runningpony [dot] com.

Thanks in advance for your interest in Running Pony.  We’re honored.  If we like what we see, we’ll set up an interview.  But we’ll let you know either way. No phone calls please. EOE M/F

Creative Writer/Producer/Director

We’re looking for another creative, visual storyteller. Running Pony, the largest production and post-production company in Memphis, is accepting resumes and reels for someone who knows how to conceptualize, write, produce and direct video content for any platform, for any client.

You should have at least 3 years of film/video experience writing scripts or producing/directing/shooting/editing, and a demo reel that leaves no question about your skills.

We want someone whose right-brain is full of creative ideas, and whose left-brain is detail-oriented enough to juggle multiple projects at the same time. You understand the technical skills of writing and filmmaking, and the strategic skills of communication, marketing and advertising. Design skills, or at least a good “eye” for design, are a big plus. And you can bring it all together to make even the most uninspiring topic the best video it can be.

Just as important as the job skills are the personal qualities you bring to the table:

Will you play nice with all your colleagues, and make our clients feel all warm and fuzzy?

Can you take direction as well as you give it?

We’re looking for someone with a friendly personality, a great attitude, and a passion for teamwork.

What do you get in return? Let’s start with the basics: a full-time salaried job with benefits including health insurance coverage for you and all your dependents (we pay 100% of all your premiums), disability insurance, 401K with employer match, an annual education stipend, and more.

And then there’s the really important stuff: We’re a fun place, with a great group of people who care about each other and the community in which we live. You’ll get to work with a variety of interesting clients and projects, and create videos you’re proud of.

If the job description fits, and if you think this sounds like a cool place to work, please rush your resume, reel, sample scripts and references torstarns [at] runningpony [dot] com .
