Description

SPM was founded on the idea that “life’s too short to work with jerks.” That simple (and true!) thought became our “no jerks” policy that is at the core of our culture. “No jerks” means we work with clients and brands we trust and foster an atmosphere of mutual respect among agency leadership, team members and clients. The result is a creative, collaborative, inclusive culture where we can do great work, enjoy our workdays, learn from each other and grow professionally and personally.

We also offer competitive pay & benefits that include medical, dental and vision insurance, 401K with up to 4% match, a new business commission program, $100 monthly cellphone reimbursement, continuing education opportunities, paid time off for volunteering, a generous holiday schedule, paid personal time, “pawternity,” Flex Fridays and so much more.
