Marchex – Why Work For Us?

Our advertising technology turns hope into expectation.

An ad campaign is an investment. And we believe you should only invest in ads that get you tangible results.

Marchex is a mobile advertising technology company. Our business model is built on two words: Advertising Performance. This means we make sure your ad campaigns deliver what you want most – new customers. Businesses that want phone calls spend billions each year on ads which, they hope, will get their phones to ring.

Here’s the difference: We don’t waste money on hope.

Instead, we look at how ads perform through hard data. The combined forces of our ad network, paid search solution, advanced analytics technology and team of leading data scientists provide deep insights into which channels an ad campaign hit, how many consumers were reached, who made a phone call and what, exactly, happened on that call. All this empowers advertisers to drive maximum value from their ad campaigns.

No need to cross your fingers. Marchex knows what works in advertising — and what doesn’t.

Working at Marchex means you’ll never be bored. We are collaborative, cooperative, accountable and celebratory. We are leading the industry into uncharted waters and we want people who are eager to make some waves. We work hard, we work smart and we believe in making it home in time for dinner.

    Current Employee - Temporary Campaign Manager II in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Marchex full-time (less than a year)


    Overall, there is a good work-life balance, although sometimes there will be additional projects/tasks that may require you to work overtime and/or work from home. There are always free snacks and beverages in the cafe, and often times there will be free food (pizza, sandwiches, salad) there as well. There are frequent meetings and forums that talk about topics/tools used in campaign management, so your knowledge will generally be up-to-date. In addition to daily responsibilities, you will have goals that you set at the beginning and halfway through the year, usually designed to promote your personal career growth and/or your team's functions. All teams are highly collaborative and communicating to your co-workers and senior managers is very easy.


    Originally applied for another position in the company, interviewed for a campaign manager position. The salary is low, and temporary-to-hire employees do not receive most benefits that regular employees get until they get converted, such as a dental plan and bus pass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some starting benefits for new temporary-to hire employees, such as a company bus pass.
