Careers

Sands Costner is a small and dynamic marketing and advertising agency of account managers, designers, and writers who apply strategic thinking to design challenges in order to measurably drive growth for our clients. Where other agencies focus on an industry, marketing channel, or demographic, Sands Costner specializes in the business life cycle. We understand how growth happens, how to catalyze it, and how to make it last.

 

Our work stands out for two main reasons: we’re not boring or trite, and we think and act strategically to meet our clients’ goals. That means aligning our process and output to specific objectives, which requires a degree of flexibility and ability to think analytically.

 

For years we’ve been quietly impressing our clients and our community with consistent results—and while it’s been quiet, we’re starting now to get louder.

Why we think you’ll like it here

It’s an exciting time to work at Sands Costner. We’re growing. We get to apply our expertise to ourselves. For us that means hiring remarkable people—skilled professionals with interesting backgrounds who are a joy to work with. For you it can mean opportunity: opportunity for a variety of work. Opportunity to influence our culture and direction. Opportunity for professional growth and promotion.

 

Our accounts span a range of industries, including healthcare, finance and tech, retail, and construction. And we’re aiming for more. This keeps us nimble and learning, so if you are someone who thrives on variety, you may be a great fit for our team.

 

When you come to work at Sands Costner, you get to work with a fun, smart, inclusive group of people. We pay attention to you—to your interests, your life, your career—while giving you the autonomy to do your best work.
