Benefits & Perks

We get it. There’s life at work and life, well, elsewhere. We want our team to have the ability to invest time into their families and communities as well as their professional lives, while having the resources and support they need.

Life First: Life happens. Which is why even though our office hours are structured around an 8:30am-5pm schedule, we have a very clear understanding that things happen when you least expect. Take care of what you need to – both at work and at home. When you apply that philosophy, things seem to work out just fine every single time.

Paid Time Off: It’s important to take breaks and recharge in this business. Our policy covers down time with a generous holiday schedule and paid time off to cover vacations, illnesses, and emergencies (aka life).

Wellness: Being healthy – both physically and mentally – is what keeps everything going in life. Which is why you might find one of us meditating on the couch or cycling around the area during our lunch break. We support what it takes to maintain an active and balanced lifestyle.

Professional & Personal Development: Investing in our team’s knowledge and mastery of the field is important. We often identify opportunities for team members to enhance skills they already have or develop new ones as they are relevant to their career goals.

Competitive Pay: Fair compensation is important for any role, and we ensure that our team members are compensated fairly for the value and experience they provide to our agency. We are a Living Wage Certified business.

Future Savings: Let’s face it… nobody wants to work forever. Which is why we want our team members to take advantage of our SIMPLE IRA and company match program.

Dependent Care FSA: A flex spending account for your dependents’ (i.e. little humans’) child care costs. This benefit allows you to set aside some of your paycheck tax free to be used towards eligible childcare expenses.

Open Positions

Our team is making it happen right now, but we’re also growing and on the lookout for sharp, new talent. If you have experience writing content, managing projects, or supporting a Creative Director with your design skills, let us know who you are. We might have a contractor position with your name on it.
