  • Overview and Responsibilities


    Velocity is Viacom's branded content and marketing studio. We develop creative and strategic solutions that connect our advertising partners to our passionate fans and the cultural power of our brands. Long story short, we’re storytellers who are fluent in fandom.



    Want the spirit of a start-up while working on some premier global entertainment brands? Interested in a creative atmosphere filled with a multitude of perspectives where you can be you? Looking to ditch a job for a calling – one that not only makes room for your side-hustles, but also encourages them? And how about creating culture that moves the world? If so, you’ve come to the right place.


    At Velocity, it’s mind over marketing. We value diversity of thought – for us, your unique viewpoints, what inspires you and how you think are just as important as your previous work experience. We’re looking for rabid consumers and creators of pop culture who want to figure out ways to put our brands in front of and in the middle of the cultural conversation.



    Velocity Culture & Creative Insights is responsible for unearthing insights about different audiences and the cultural context in which they exist. The Senior Manager should have a strong interest in consumer brands, media, business and culture, and possess the ability to think strategically about how these elements interact.  An entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to adapt to a variety of business and cultural initiatives are critical. You will provide support and at times lead various client-facing projects, potentially including business and brand strategies, insights/trends studies, competitive research reports, insights that fuel the development of creative concepts, communications and events.


    You must be thoughtful, analytical, able to artfully construct a narrative, possess project management skills, have the ability to inspire creative thinking and be a team player. Sound like you?
