Description

Do you enjoy understanding what makes brands work? Can you build new brands and bring them to life through meaningful products and experiences? Do you geek out on using ethnographic research to understand customers and employees? Do you love figuring out how brands fit into our increasingly complex and interconnected world? Are you constantly explaining to people that a brand is much more than a logo and a tagline? If so, we would love to meet you. EPAM Continuum is seeking an energetic, talented Brand Strategist to join our team. Brand Strategists work on a wide range of projects. While exposed to the entire creative process, they shine at bringing our client’s stories to life in ways that connect with their customers and employees. They are comfortable working directly with a variety of clients and with Design and Technology practitioners across the wider EPAM Continuum team. #LI-DNI #LI-DNP #CONT_LOGO
