Why work at POD Marketing?

POD Marketing is an agency that has been identified by Google as one of the fastest growing in Canada. We are a Premier Partner with Google and that comes with some perks! Our work environment is fast paced but we take the time to have coffee and get to know one another. We work for each other, which is a rare thing to find in today’s world.

We provide a flexible work schedule, the ability to work from home, a stocked beer (or soda) fridge, a Virtual Reality Room (HTC Vive anyone?), full benefits paid for and the ability to grow your career. Our team works directly with clients and therefore helps impact their business directly. The work that we do is actually visible with the clients we work with. Oh, and there’s free parking. So… after all this I must ask you – why not work for POD Marketing?
