The Creative Team is made up of, well, creatives. We’re writers and designers, problem solvers and big idea havers from all over the world. It’s our job to turn a brief into something people can actually get excited about. Like apps. Or websites. Or virtual reality trips through an agave field—from a bee’s eye view. Outside the office, we go to each other’s art shows, watch each other’s bands perform and also find time to support many of the fine drinking establishments around TriBeCa.
The Production and Program Management Team steers the ship, leading our internal groups to success in our work—from the creation of awesome products to satisfied business objectives. We form meaningful partnerships with our clients, ensure maximum efficiency across the production process, delivering industry-leading work on a consistent basis. We make stuff happen. Through hard work, diplomacy, negotiation, and communicating our butts off.
The Content Development team is a group of directors, designers, producers, editors, motion graphic artists and CG artists that are dedicated to creating content of all shapes and sizes. We’re not married to one style—our work spans from narrative storytelling to documentaries, VR experiences and installations. We collaborate with the creative and technology departments to create groundbreaking experiences in the online and physical space.
The Business Planning Team is the front door of Firstborn. Think of us as the connective tissue between our talented teams and potential new clients: we find and grow relationships that lead to inspiring work. We tell stories about Firstborn and the work we do, but we also talk about what we don’t (or won’t) do. We represent the agency, specializing in relationship building, investigation, negotiation, presentation—and of course, we’re very organized.
The tech team is composed of programmers, coders, animators, engineers, tinkerers and hackers. We’re creative makers that solve problems with the magic of technology. To put it simply: we turn ideas into actual, usable products. Beyond that, we’re a close-knit team that’s constantly sharing ideas, attending meet-ups—even brewing our own beer and building arcade gaming machines together.
The Strategy and Analytics team is as equally committed to creating amazing work as we are to growing each other. While we all have unique strengths and skills, we keep ourselves open to new and better ways of thinking and doing. We’re nimble and scrappy. We look out for each other and thrive off the supportive and cohesive environment we’ve created.
Let’s put it this way: you won’t be making photocopies or fetching coffee (Except for your own coffee. You still have to do that.) Taking on a paid internship at Firstborn means gaining first-hand experience by working alongside our team on real projects, for real clients, with real deadlines. Think of this as a 6-month training period for a full-time opportunity. Nearly a quarter of our team started out as interns, so it’s a great way to prove yourself and get your foot in the door.
