Why do people love working at Kiwi Creative?

  • Kiwi is da shit. It's chill AF. Bathrooms have squatty potties. But seriously…I've worked here for over four years for a reason: I love the culture and work environment. Everyone here works hard but loves to have fun and laugh. I never dread coming to work. And you won't find another workplace with as flexible work hours and unlimited PTO…just saying.

    Ryan Patterson
  • I love how tight-knit we are as a team at Kiwi. We complete our clients' work and tackle challenges while enjoying many laughs each day. Plus, there are snacks…tons of snacks!

    Dylan Zsigray
  • My favorite part about working for Kiwi (other than the incredibly kind and enjoyable team of people), is the flexibility it offers me. I am able to do great marketing work for tech companies while also making sure my kids have me available when they need me.

    Amy Husted
  • Kiwi Creative is the first workplace where I feel truly at "home." It's the best definition of work-family I've ever come across in my career. We work hard to make clients happy, and while we may get testy with each other sometimes, we deal with and forget our issues quickly and we burst out in laughter at the most ridiculous things—just like a real family.

    Giselle Bardwell
  • It's rewarding working at a place that actively contributes to your professional growth. From monthly SMART goals to empowering you to make decisions, your opinion and well-being matter.

    Erin Barr
  • The team at Kiwi is friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is inviting and comfortable! Job goals and expectations are clear. Leadership is helpful, knowledgeable and encourages ongoing education and professional growth.

What is life like at our agency?

We are flexible.

Have to leave early for a doctor’s appointment? Need to put your kiddo on the bus every morning? Got a flat tire on the way to work? Don’t worry about it. We’re all adults, so we have unlimited PTO and flexible work schedules because, well, life.

We value feedback.

We go beyond the dreaded annual review and provide ongoing feedback so you always know what’s going well and what could use improvement. This feedback goes both ways…we’re always asking for input from our employees on how to improve our agency, too.

We encourage growth.

Looking for a VP-level title and a company car? Not here. But you will find tremendous career growth opportunities through paid conferences, peer learning, ongoing training and ever-changing technology.

We have fun.

If you love an eclectic mix of music, funny memes and the occasional NSFW joke, then you’ll fit right in here at our agency. We work hard, but we laugh even harder. People without a sense of humor need not apply.
