The Proof Is In Your Perks

Anybody can say they’re the best digital marketing agency in the galaxy. It’s why so many careers pages are so boring! At Cardinal, we’re all about straight talk—about backing up words with action and proof. Which is why we’ve put together an employee perks and benefits package that makes most job candidates do a double take.

Perks of Full Time Flocker-ism

An Agency That Wins
Thanks to our tremendous Flock of digital marketing professionals, we’ve grown 3x in the past year alone and maintained 20% profit margins and four months of cash in the bank, well, forever. Our agency hasn’t had an unprofitable month in more than five years, which means that when you fly with us, you’ll be winning all day.

When We Win, You Win
As a member of our Flock, you’ll be eligible for profit sharing after 90 days (paid out on a monthly basis). That way, you’ll know that you’re just flying in formation for formation’s sake—there’s compensation waiting for you and your teammates when we reach our destination.

An A+ Health Benefits Plan
One of the key ways we show our support for our team members is through a comprehensive health, dental, and life insurance package. That goes for you and your dependents! Quality, affordable healthcare you can count on when life happens (as it always seems to!).

Robust 401k Matching
The future might seem far off, sure. Why not pad that 401k to help fund a few trips in retirement? Our 4% company match for employee 401k programs ought to help you do just that.

Fully Paid Maternity Leave
So many of our team members have families themselves, or will soon. Which is why we’re so proud to offer 12 weeks of fully paid maternity leave to all the mommas in our Flock. For the poppas, we offer three weeks of fully paid paternity leave.

Unlimited (and Enforced) PTO
That’s right: if you’re overworking yourself, or putting your paid time off on hold with reckless abandon, we’ll step in to get your vacation going for you. Those waves in Hawaii aren’t going to surf themselves! And with unlimited PTO, you’ll have all the time you need to get your bird on (and fly, duh).

Cardinal’s World-Famous Annual Trip for Employees
Trademark pending. Each year, we invite all Cardinal Digital Marketing employees and their partners or spouses along on a trip to somewhere in the Southeastern United States. Recent trips included Nashville, Destin, and Asheville. What makes these excursions world famous? You’ll just have to find out.

Care For the Community We Live and Work in
In the past 12 months alone, the Cardinal team has donated more than $10,000 to 30 different charities. Twice a year, we conduct group outings to help local charities, such as Meals on Wheels, Toys for Tots, or local park cleanups.

Join a Fun & Welcoming Culture

When we win, you win. And we REALLY want you to win. Which is why we’re constantly reflecting on how we can better prioritize inclusivity, diversity, visibility, and individual support.

Other highlights include:

• An office-less CEO (he sits among the Flock, for better or worse)

• Openness to being real about what’s going on in the world. Group-wide discussions about the various social justice movements and how we can support them are common.

Weekly Meetings With Your Boss + Weekly and Monthly Meetings With the CEO

Achieve Real Work-Life Balance

With an emphasis on work-life balance during 2020 and the global pandemic, we made security a top priority for our employees. This meant embracing the work-from-home model and making it a seamless part of our daily operations. Turns out, a lot of employees really liked the trust and flexibility of WFH. Productivity and efficiency got even stronger. So we kept it! Now all employees are allowed to work from home 2-3 days a week, with the rest spent in-office.

“The remote option was a big draw for me. A lot of agencies say they value work-life balance, but not many have taken the steps Cardinal has to make WFH a priority.”

Kylee Lutz
Sr. Director, Account Services at Cardinal Digital Marketing

Get Hands-On Marketing Experience in Variety of Industries

Help some of the biggest companies in healthcare, higher education, and legal scale into thriving multi-location groups. And feel welcome to learn, push the envelope, and innovate along the way—all alongside a supportive and collaborative team that includes industry leaders like John McAlpin and Nick Van Winkle. Here, you’ll enjoy support for continuing education (conferences, access to CXL), as well as an openness to new ideas, approaches, and failure that’s hard to find among digital marketing agencies.

“Alex and the team take the time to understand what each person wants in their particular role. That’s huge. It’s a two-way relationship, instead of just the agency taking, taking, taking.”

John McAlpin
SEO Director at Cardinal Digital Marketing | VIP Contributor at Search Engine Journal

Make a Real Difference For People & Businesses

Not one member of our Flock is just a cog in the wheel. On the contrary: you’ll have a direct role in igniting growth beyond what most businesses think possible for themselves. You’ll be invited to collaborate with other marketing pros to solve tough business challenges, while applying the latest marketing innovations. And you’ll help businesses large and small dominate their industries.

Play an Active Role in Shaping the Agency’s Future

When we say the CEO has an open-door policy, we mean it. Not long ago, Alex asked the agency what they would do with $250k. When we told him we wanted to use to acquire more healthcare clients, that’s exactly what he spent the money on. When he asked if we’d rather invest in a Creative Project Manager or Creative Director, we got to decide the title and person we hired.

“I came from a large marketing agency where 1-2 years was the expected tenure. That people want to stay here four, five plus years was an important signal to me.”

Landon Daugherty, MBA
Director, Paid Social at Cardinal Digital Marketing

The Best 2-Day-a-Week Office Place in Atlanta

As “badass” as our downtown Chamblee office might be (CEO’s words, not ours)—including free parking, free coffee, snacks, and foosball, and tons of restaurants and breweries nearby—we only ask that you bring your beautiful self into the office two days a week. Your furry friends, too! The rest you’ll work remotely. But either way, you can count on no meetings that start before 8:30 am or after 5:00 pm, no emails or calls past 7:00 pm, and absolute radio silence over the weekend. There will be lots of Cardinal swag, though (our CEO thinks he’s Calvin Klein).
