Who we are

Products, services

Evolving technical platforms, emerging channels, and managed workforce programs have stretched business line, product, marketing and creative teams and their hiring managers to the limit. When they yell "uncle," we come running.

Aquent works with the world’s largest companies and organizations to meet the challenge of scalable marketing, creative, and digital professionals that seamlessly fit their team’s culture. By working with us, they can add expertise to their in-house teams to help solve their biggest digital, marketing, creative, and design challenges.

But our relationships don’t just stop with the client. A part of staffing digital, marketing, and creative professionals at the largest companies often means forging deep relationships with Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to deliver value to our mutual clients.

Company outlook

698138e71fc333dc3e72.jpg

We've always been firm believers that the only way to thrive in a world that’s evolving at a crazy fast pace is to relentlessly explore new innovations, approaches, and possibilities. It’s a belief that never fails to pay off.

We came up with the idea of creating a Macintosh-skilled staffing company more than 27 years ago. Since then, we’ve matched hundreds of thousands of people — from digital creatives to marketing talent — with amazing companies and agencies all over the world.

We’re changing the industry again by offering a series of Massive Open Online Courses designed to bridge the digital skills gap faced by creative organizations worldwide. We call it Aquent Gymnasium, but you can call it a stroke of genius if you’d like.

In our quest to always deliver original and innovative products and services, we’ve gone far beyond contract and contract-to-hire staffing, which you’ll see in our other businesses: Aspire, Aquent OnDemand, Firebrand Talent, Litl, and Scout.

Health, Dental & Vision
The quality of our healthcare plan is better than any of our competitors. (We know, because we did a head-to-head comparison.) Everyone from our CEO to our AQUENT talent receives the same healthcare package the same premium contribution level. Because keeping people healthy is a benefit everyone loves.

While we realize the importance of finding work today, we also know it’s important to plan ahead. We are invested in your future and offer our talent a competitive 401K package with Fidelity Investments.

CORPORATE CAREERS AT AQUENT

How does making a difference in people’s lives and working in a culture where collaboration, individuality and an entrepreneurial spirit thrive sound to you? Sounds great to us. (And our benefits ain’t bad, either.)

We believe that every person matters and all of our actions interrelate to deliver competitive advantage and culture of service to our clients, talent and each other.

That's why we are so selective about folks that join our team.

If you’re looking to make a difference in people’s lives, whether it’s a talent, client, or coworker, you’ve found the place for you.

We understand that work and life need to blend together. And that there's a give and take in the today's working world. That's why we've worked tirelessly to create an environment where both can live together in harmony. Our vacation policy is unusually generous and flexible (some might say extraordinary.) We encourage everyone to use our beach house in Hawaii.

Our benefits - aside from having an awesome job - include medical, vision, and dental benefits, a substantial 401(k) match, FSA, tuition reimbursement, and great office banter!

What else should applicants know about us?

WE'RE PIONEERS

It’s part of our corporate DNA to tirelessly explore new possibilities. We were the first staffing company to offer benefits to our freelancers. The first to assess candidates on hands­-on, real world assessments. And the first to launch a learning initiative that offers free, practical, massive online open courses (MOOCs) on digital design, front-end development, and other in­-demand skills our clients need right now. What can we say, we’re overachievers. 


Our Mission

We harness the power of individuals to change the way the world works. By celebrating the unique abilities of our talent, we’re empowering the makers of the modern world to work smarter every day. 

Our Vision

A world where talent and businesses are empowered to realize their highest potential. As agents of change, we give our talent the freedom and independence to pursue better opportunities, and give our clients customized workforces built to fit their needs. 

Our History

Agents of Change

We entered the world as MacTemps, a temp agency that specialized in procuring Mac-savvy talent. Today, we’re 27 domestic and 10 international offices strong, and the top 10 most valuable brands in the world rely on us for creative, digital, and marketing talent.
