CULTURE & CAREERS
CULTURE & CAREERS
The ones who wake up every day and turn new world constraints into big opportunities. The ones with relentless passion. The ones that understand they have to outthink – rather than outspend – their competition in order to acquire customers or gain market share from larger competitors.
How do you overcome being outranked, out-resourced or outspent? You have to outthink. And “outthinking” is exactly what we provide for our clients. As a full-service marketing firm with in-house media planning and buying, we consult with companies to arm them with the storytelling, activation strategies and reporting mechanisms they need to build their tribe and achieve their business goals. This is our mission and what drives our company culture forward everyday.
We work with amazing clients across many industries – beauty, professional sports, technology, beverage, financial, healthcare, commercial development and more.
Our office is located in downtown Austin, a short walk from the flagship Whole Foods, Book People, the State Capitol and our beloved Ranch 616. We’re perfectly situated between the calming charm of Clarksville and the bustle and bars of West 6th Street.
We help our clients achieve the impossible by delivering the unbelievable. We solve the problems they’ve identified and the ones they haven’t. Creative isn’t a department – it’s a mindset.
· Begin with the end in mind.
· Create solutions, not ads.
· Embody resourcefulness.
We do to others what we would want them to do to us. That means investing in people and partnerships and offering help at every turn.
· Cultivate relationships.
· Practice radical candor.
· Celebrate wins.
· Don’t be an asshole.
We operate in a constantly evolving, trust-based environment where micromanagement is not an option. The only wrong action to take is inaction.
· Punch above your weight.
· Find beauty in constraints.
· Collaborate freely.
· Do it today, not tomorrow.
We are FPO, always evolving, always getting better. Becoming the best means never befriending complacency.
· Identify blind spots.
· Fail forward.
· Seek progress, not perfection.
· Always be learning.
We know a lasting legacy is not rooted in the awards or accounts we win, but in the impact we have on each other, our clients, our partners and our community.
· Always bring your true self to work.
· Work smarter, not longer.
· Pay it upward and onward.
· Stay grateful.
We are a fortunate bunch. Business is good and we get to live and play in one of the best cities in the world. We always want to be doing something large or small, public or private to help others. We’re never too busy to feed our soul.
From our brand work for the Austin Humane Society to our campaigns for Austin Habitat for Humanity, we have a long legacy of donating our time and talents to help improve our greater community.
To support Foster Angels of Central Texas, we created the Austin Skipathon. This annual event takes place at Mueller Lake Park and raises funds (and knees!), directly benefitting more than 3,500 children in the Central Texas foster care system. We also support the organization during the holidays by purchasing gifts for foster children whose wish list would otherwise go unfulfilled.
In addition to team outings and initiatives, our staffers are directly involved with local non-profits, serving to make an impact on causes that mean the most to them. Whether its serving as a “Big” for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas or working as an active board member for a local 501(c), our team is passionate about making an impact on those around us.
We are committed to building our agency into one of the best places to work in the industry. To that end, we offer:
· Medical and Dental Insurance (90% paid by employer)
· Paid time off over Christmas break
· Summer Fridays
· Team lunches
· Quarterly events
· Professional development
· Client and employee referral programs
· Surprise and Delight: Chair massages, holiday contests and more
