Aquent – Why Work For Us?

We provide staffing solutions to marketing and creative services organizations in global companies. We also have a suite of cloud-based software tools for project and digital asset management and recently opened an online school for digital designers and developers.

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.)

At Aquent, we believe a flexible workforce without borders makes sense, given specialized, skilled talent can solve marketing and design problems anywhere. Aquent is the global staffing agency for freelance/contract and temp-to-perm placement for marketing and design professionals.

Because we only hire agents with personal insight and experience in marketing and design, we're able to connect the perfect, specialized candidates with the right opportunity for their skill set. Our focus on personalized service means that we don’t just make matches, we are agents who understand and advocate for our talent.

So whether it's a long-term project or a short-term gig, our agents know the right way to connect clients and skilled talent. It's the new way to work, and we're passionate about it.

Aquent is based in Boston, Massachusetts with offices throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, France, and The Netherlands.

    I worked at Aquent full-time (More than a year)


    The Aquent team was very supportive. They were always there for me, but never interfered with my job duties at the client corporation. Expense reports were relatively painless and were paid quickly.


    No major cons. If you travel for your job, you'll be using your own credit card. They don't offer a corporate card (although airfare and hotel could be charged to an Aquent account).

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aquent.


    5 Interviews with different levels of management, questions were repeated multiple times - they could have cut out an interview or two if they shared notes. I had an in-person, phone, video and panel interview.
