Conversant is a leader in interaction management, empowering brands to transform ordinary customer experiences into meaningful, human experiences.

We do this with truth, proof and transparency at our core. As part of Epsilon, Conversant employs more than 2,100 associates in 17 offices worldwide.

We are an organization that is driven by data and results, but we know our associates do their best work when they have work-life harmony. Conversant offers an abundant amount of benefits, incentives and programs that help our associates achieve that. 

Our office is vibrant and fun with a variety of creative perks including: cold brew coffee Monday, bagel Friday, ice cream socials, freshly roasted local coffee, foosball, shuffleboard, trivia events, intramural sports, associate appreciation days and an associate-led band. We continue to look at bringing our employees together to from bonds that go beyond the walls of our offices. At the end of the day, we’re winning together!

Great stories deserve to be told. We believe in rewarding and celebrating associates whose accomplishments have gone above and beyond to significantly impact our business. Each quarter, Conversant recognizes associates with our Go Big Award. This award is presented to those who live and breathe our core values and exhibit the excellence to which we all aspire:

  • 1% Better Every Day: We strive for excellence and to consistently improve – even a little bit – each day to drive the company forward.
  • Automate to Innovate: Automation is key in allowing our associates to spend their energy on differentiated solutions. We’re always looking for new ways to increase throughput and quality.
  • Differentiate or Die: There’s a lot of noise in our industry. If companies don’t differentiate, it’s just a race to the bottom on price. We’re here to change the game, raise the bar and lead the market.
  • Today, Not Tomorrow: We empower associates to take ownership and exhibit leadership. The key is to prioritize what’s important, communicate to stakeholders and get after the important work.

Innovation is at the heart of our business. We embrace an innovative mindset and approach to our products, platforms and solutions. Conversant strives to push the boundaries of digital marketing and advertising via our proprietary technology, personalization platform and cutting-edge creative capabilities. We couldn’t do any of those things without an extremely talented team of individuals across all areas of the business, including engineering, data analytics, creative technology, marketing, business development and more.

From developing tools for advertisers and publishers to gain GDPR and ePrivacy Directive compliance to providing our clients with more transparency with our self-service marketing and analytics platform, Mesobase, our passion for excellence means we are constantly striving to improve – even if it’s a little bit – each day to drive the company and our community forward.
