Careers

Big ideas. Small egos. We create brands, build websites and generally do everything we can to make our clients love us. That’s AOR in a nutshell. We LOVE what we do—and we’re always looking for ways to do it better. That’s why we’re always looking for new AORians (yes, that’s what we call ourselves) to join our ranks. We're currently hiring for the positions listed below.

AOR is a down-to-earth team that believes collaboration builds great brands, candid conversation creates strong teams, and life is too short for inflated egos. We love what we do, and we work hard. We appreciate work-life balance and we can’t live without our pups around. We boast a flexible PTO policy and kick-ass profit-sharing program because nothing says we love our employees by letting them take the time off they need and sharing 25% of all net profits. We look for people who jump at opportunity and embrace change to bring new ideas to our team. We value diversity and are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

Employee Benefits

Other than an open job, you probably want to know what perks come with it. Here are just a few that show just how much we value our employees.

 

Flexible PTO: Your life outside the agency is just as important as your life inside it. AOR employees get 10 days of PTO their first year at AOR, with the flexible PTO kicking in at the start of the second year.

Paid Holidays: Full-time employees at AOR get 10 days of paid holidays: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the day following, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and your Birthday (which should be a holiday, of course).
