Creative Strategist

Full-time

 — 

Remote / Amsterdam

At Purple, we believe that the stories you tell as a brand or company help you stand out. If you succeed in grabbing your audience’s attention you can build a connection. And from there, anything is possible. We support our clients in the development of attention grabbing moments powered by visual storytelling and technology that amazes your senses. We help design and deliver brand experiences of the future - from customer experience centers to virtual studios and interactive displays.

An ambitious software company with a creative agency edge

We’ve grown steadily since our foundation in 2008, creating an ambitious 40-strong team consisting of a wide variety of perspectives and skills.

Over the past 3 years we’ve transformed into a software company first and a creative agency second. We’ve developed our own SaaS storytelling platform called Hyro. Hyro powers all the digital brand experiences we design for our clients. We still apply the power of left and right brain thinking, innovation and co-creation to our client’s business problems. But now, we have a continued long-term relationship with our clients because of our software.

We work for some of the biggest brands in the world; ranging from Microsoft and Under Armour to Pepsico and Randstad. It’s our ambition to help brands and companies tell their story in a unique, memorable and engaging way.

We’re ready - and excited - to take the next step in our company’s development. That means we’ve started the process of setting up an office in the US. And we’re looking to hire young professionals from a variety of industries to help build our team of creative strategists.

Where you can find us

Our office used to be an old factory. Expect a lot of raw industrial edges that we’ve turned into an inspiring, creative workspace - wanna see? You may sometimes trip over some cables, a projector, or a motion capture suit – it's not a mess, it's a reflection of what we do. We've recently doubled the size of this office, but you get the idea.

We’re located right in between Haarlem and Amsterdam. With a train station literally around the corner, it’s easy to get to work using public transport. But, if you’re a car person, parking is also not an issue.

Our office.

Our office used to be an old factory. Expect a lot of raw industrial edges that we’ve turned into an inspiring, creative work space – wanna see? You may sometimes trip over some cables, a projector, or a motion capture suit – we consider this part of our eclectic interior design style.

All in all, we’re a simple lot. We believe in continuous learning, rapid iterations, and that creativity is the key to solving real world problems. We don’t believe in unnecessary hierarchy, bureaucracy, or staying in the comfort zone.

Recognize yourself in this? If so, we can’t wait to meet up. And yes, we have a table tennis table and a swing… We know, so cliché – but also kind of chill.
