After more than a decade in Norwalk, CT, Octagon (the global sports, entertainment and experiential marketing arm of the Interpublic Group) made the decision to move it’s headquarters location back to Stamford, CT, to the Shippan Landing office park in Stamford.
Finding talent in this tight labor market is not an easy job for employers.
Finding tech/digital talent is even more difficult.
The attractiveness of the location was a significant factor in the Octagon Management Team’s decision to move to Stamford. According to MJ Loparco, Director of Talent Acquision “Stamford places us in a much more desirable area for talent – closer to a major transportation hub and easily accessible to the talent that resides in the NYC metro area, a major destination for that tech & digital talent critical for our industry.”
Octagon is gearing up in 2018 for hiring in their exciting new space
Octagon’s Creative, Concepting, Digital and Production teams are growing and they are looking for talent that spans programming and development, creative concepting, digital (both experiential and traditional), web design and production (video and photography).
Octagon is an exciting place to be
Octagon’s clients range from BMW, Taco Bell, Mastercard, Johnson & Johnson. The marketing programs the Octagon teams develop are used in the Grammys, Super Bowl, Final Four and the Olympics.
Octagon’s employees are some of the best
“Octagon employees are some of the best, like Sebastian Oddo. In his current role, he oversees the digital, design and video businesses responsible for delivering websites/apps, experiential build designs and content series for some of the largest fortune 500 companies in the U.S. Sebastian also wrote a book for college students titled Excuse Me, College is Now, designed to help young professionals create positive experiences while at school and right before they begin their career,” reports MJ.
