Schiefer Media, Inc. (SCS) is a brand transformation company. We are an innovative integrated agency with a new model for approaching marketing: digital first, data-focused, and storytelling-oriented.  We host a fast-paced, high-energy environment with lots of opportunity to get involved, take ownership and grow.  We are currently looking for a passionate, innovative professional, who is not afraid to “get in the weeds” and help transform us into one of the best agencies to work for.  You will work in a collaborative and inclusive environment that values diverse perspectives.  Our team is fearless in the pursuit of new ideas, and uncompromising in our quest to become the Best of the Best that both clients and potential candidates think of when in the market.

We are a fast growing, high performance, outcome-oriented company that is committed to rolling up our sleeves and achieving greatness and we need an HR leader that will develop, implement and manage human resources strategies, systems and policies and take ownership of the full cycle HR.  You will be based in our Costa Mesa office and work closely with the COO, CFO, and HR Coordinator to support all three offices located in the U.S. and Canada.

Our goal is to be the best agency to work for across all our locations to build an environment where our team can thrive personally and professionally.

If you are a people person who is practical-minded;

If you are passionate and business oriented;
