To set the stage for our 20th anniversary, we developed a list of Castle values. There were a lot of important ideas on the list…. But the #1 thing everyone said embodied our agency is the word “scrappy.” It’s what we are as a company, how we function as a team and the attitude we bring to our client work every day. Who is this scrappy group? Media relations gurus and marketers. Designers and content creators. Event planners and strategists. Social media nerds and social butterflies. We really like spending time with each other every day. So much so that we were named a Best Places to Work in 2016, 2017 and 2018. We think it translates into great work.
At Castle, we are looking for people with kick-butt creative thinking, stellar communications skills, project management acuity, a big picture brain with small picture compulsion, fascination with the world around you, pop culture, current events, the economy, the media and the ways in which you can play a part. We’ll provide you with hands-on experience, growth and empowerment opportunities, interesting clients, colleagues you enjoy working with, an apolitical culture, and flexibility and fairness.
