Are you a dynamic, flexible individual looking to grow your career in communications and digital at one of the most reputable firms in the business?

Tunheim is the agency that brought the Superbowl to Minneapolis, shared Ryder Cup 2016 with the world, opened Mall of America, told the Minnesota Public Radio story, and has been recognized for helping Minnesota hospitals address some of their most pressing health crisis’.

Designed around the fundamental belief that successful organizations take responsibility for being understood, we help our clients rethink how they work and how they communicate, to effectively engage with their most important stakeholders. We tackle our clients’ toughest challenges with a collective approach – a belief that no one individual is as good as the company’s “collective best.”

Our collaborative approach extends throughout our organization. From our open office design to lunch-time gab sessions and late afternoon coworking pods, our team enjoys being together and celebrates the fresh thinking that colleagues can bring to solving the challenge of the day.

For this role, we are looking for someone who is curious about traditional and digital communications, an individual who loves to learn from everything around them, someone who appreciates social media but also can write a mean press release that stands out. At Tunheim we hustle for our clients and the agency – and we need someone who is ready to dive headfirst and think (and rethink) through all possibilities.
