THE BIGGER TEAM YOU’LL JOIN

Where others see complexity, we see possibility.

Octagon is the global sports, entertainment and experiential marketing arm of the Interpublic Group. But if that classification doesn’t do it for you, and it shouldn’t, let’s take it a step further.

We are what we believe. And we believe that while the world of sports and entertainment is full of opportunities and possibilities, sometimes the amount of choice can seem a little overwhelming. Even daunting.

That’s where we come into play.

At Octagon we inspire brands, talent, and our people to see the world for all its potential. We then help break down the complexity and push forward so you can make your next right move.

 

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

  • A passion and expertise in sports, CSR programs, entertainment, gaming, music and/or celebrity & lifestyle culture
  • Steadfast curiosity for the inner workings of the sports industry
  • At least one year of experience in sports marketing and/or client management
  • A “no job is too small” approach
  • Desire to succeed and a can-do mindset
  • Ability to handle multiple programs simultaneously
  • You are coachable and are willing to adapt in a fast-paced work environment
  • Excellent organizational skills and attentiveness to detail

  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite (PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Publisher)
  • Willingness to work non-traditional hours including weekend travel
  • All applicants must provide proof of COVID vaccination or contact the organization’s HR team if eligible for an exemption
