Creativity rules here, egos do not

At Bates Creative, no two days are the same. It’s not your job to show up each morning, but your purpose to further your career at our agency. Not to mention all the great benefits and perks of working with us that you can count on.

Benefits & Perks

Health Care Package

Your wellbeing matters to us, so we contribute to your healthcare plan within the first three months of employment.

Compensation Package

That daily coffee run really adds up. Secure your financial future with a Simple IRA plus a company match that’s offered after one year of employment.

Team Building

Holiday celebrations, quarterly outings, awards galas, you name it—we hit the town as a team and connect over more than just “work.”

Flex hours (WFH opportunities)

On top of the flex hours we offer, you can also take a day to work in your pajamas with our work from home opportunities.

Parking and Metro Compensation

Near, far, wherever you are, you don’t have to worry about finding parking with our company garage. Prefer taking the metro? We’re right off the Red Line and compensate that, too.

Paid Time Off

Everyone can accrue at least 15 days paid time off, not including federal holidays. If you’re heading out of town, send us a post card!

Industry Events

We don’t want you stuck behind a desk—everyone gets a yearly allowance to attend professional development events to learn from and network with industry peers.

We’re Always Looking For

Designer

Our designers are inspired individuals with a passion for envisioning, creating and delivering authentic designs that reflect our clients’ goals. We’ve created custom typography from fire and sculptures from thousands of feet of wire. So, you get “it” – that designing with dimension sometimes takes longer to achieve, but is more rewarding in the end. As a designer, you’re a part of a team that shares this common belief.

Web Designer / Front-End Developer

Our web team is committed to developing interactive experiences that engage audiences anytime and anywhere. As a web designer / front-end developer, CSS3, HTML5, Javascript and jQuery are simply second nature for you in the UX/UI environment. And because your attention to detail with clean, compelling code enlivens current technologies, it prepares for future innovations as well.
