At Tier One, we’re passionate about a lot of things. Being indispensable partners to our clients. Doing great, award-winning work. And attracting and retaining the industry’s best people who appreciate our empathetic and flexible agency model designed to give everyone the space to maintain a healthy work/life balance. 

We’ve built an agency that’s a true meritocracy. Where the best and most creative ideas rise to the top. Where talented communication professionals from a variety of backgrounds can forge their own career paths without big agency hierarchies. And where everyone has each other’s best interests at heart.

Our hustle, resourcefulness, and collaboration cultivates our championship team mentality. We hold each other to high standards. We have each others’ backs and jump in to help when life throws a teammate a curveball. We celebrate our successes. We’re open to feedback. We own problems and solve them together. We create opportunities. We believe in the power of work/life balance. Oh, and we love to laugh.

As we like to say in Boston, at Tier One, it’s all about the cult-cha! Yes, we work hard. But we’re also big believers in cutting loose. Our monthly culture activities include team outings and parties, happy hours, contests with valuable prizes, and other fun events! We also recognize outstanding contributions to client and agency initiatives with our quarterly “Indispensable” award and our “Milestone” awards that provide generous cash bonuses to employees celebrating their three-, five- and 10-year agency anniversaries.
