Y&R: Source code monkeys

The brief: Find a new digital programmer for our Agency without going over mountains of irrelevant CVs. We wanted to make sure we reached our target audience – programmers.

The insight: We decided to speak to programmers in the language they understand best – programming and source codes, and in a place only they visit – site source code pages.

The solution: We placed ASCII coded "wanted" ads on site source codes. This way we filtered irrelevant audiences. Programmers who were alert and paid attention to the details found our ads and contact e-mail and sent us their CVs.
