About DEG

 

DEG creates smart digital marketing, commerce, and collaboration strategies that empower organizations to amplify their competitive advantages and achieve their objectives. We use our expertise to impact the trajectory of business by crafting innovative approaches that employ digital direct marketing and eCRM, social media, integrated e-commerce, web content management, enterprise collaboration, and mobile development—all driven and supported by analytics, process management, technological prowess, and award-winning creative.

 

Since we opened our doors in 1999, one of our most important goals has been to create a culture in which excellence is recognized, individualism is encouraged, and the workplace is vibrant. We think we’ve accomplished that, and the fact that DEG has been repeatedly recognized as one of the area’s “Best Places to Work” backs that up.

But how have we done it? It starts with building a profitable, stable company and extending the more traditional benefits to our associates and their families, including:

  • Multiple Health Plan options (including PPO/HMO), company-paid premiums for all associates, and with no waiting period
  • Life Insurance, AD&D, and Short- and Long-Term Disability, with premium covered by DEG

  • Optional 401k Retirement Savings Plan with company sponsored matching program
  • Personal Emergency Services, including travel assistance and identity theft protection
  • Bonus Plan based on company and individual performance
  • Paid Time Off (PTO) and Holidays

 

But just as our take on digital strategy is far from traditional, so are the benefits of hanging your hat here at DEG. Ours is a fun, energetic, casual work environment. We offer flexible schedules and collaborative, cross-disciplinary work. You have the opportunity to work with high-profile clients in myriad industries and visionary leaders and technologists in every discipline. And, of course, there’s free soda, juice, and Starbuck’s coffee in our company coffeehouse. Every Friday, feel free to join us for our weekly Beer:30.
