If you value speed, provocation, and teamwork, then you belong at Mindshare. We’ll encourage you to break the rules, knock things down, rebuild them better, and push the boundaries of what’s possible, every single day. We have 116 offices in 86 countries worldwide, and they all have one goal: to make media a competitive advantage for our clients.     Why? Because we believe that all brand marketing begins and ends in media. Through media, we make our clients nimble, creative, and culturally relevant. We harness data-driven insights like nobody’s business, and turn them into real-time media investment decisions – adaptive marketing at its finest.     We’re the winner of five Cannes Lions, eight Effies Awards, and Adweek’s Media Plan of the Year, and Global Mobile Agency of the Year this year, and we're growing rapidly.
