Career Opportunity – Technical Support Manager in Dearborn, MI

Imagination Logo

Imagination is an experience agency. We operate single-mindedly in the belief that how your brand communicates is not built around what you say; it is in the experiences that you create and share with customers. It is not about above and below the line advertising, nor is it about online and offline communications, it is about developing magnetic experiences which allow people to willingly engage with brands in a context that is relevant and timely.

We are underpinned by a collaborative culture. We are creative, pro-active thinkers who are passionate about and committed to delivering excellent results for our clients, helping to deliver groundbreaking work.

While we expect you to deliver the requirements of your job, we genuinely don’t look to confine you into a specific function and marrying title. Everyone’s point of view is welcome and an entrepreneurial drive with a quizzical mind is encouraged.
