Small Business Culture and Perks
At Joy of Marketing we jump out of bed each morning to help photographers do what they love and get paid for it.
Our Joy of Marketing environment is a place where we kick butt all day long with uber talented teammates and end our days knowing we’ve accomplished something BIG….so we go home happy and ready for what’s next.
Here’s what we value:
- We think outlandishly and work together as a team to make BIG things happen.
- We push beyond the norm and always raise the creativity bar.
- We move faster than a bullet train, thrive with change and think quickly.
- We tackle ambiguity and stress head on.
- We prioritize opportunities quickly.
- We rise as a team and we fall as a team.
- We make time to help each other, our communities and our customers.
- We are positive, passionate people who embrace a healthy debate.
- We are responsible with our flexibility and freedom.
Confidence without ego

- We make mistakes but we learn from them.
- We accomplish forward progress despite not having the entire picture.
