Rise Interactive – Why Work For Us?


Rise Interactive is a digital marketing agency, specializing in media, analytics, and customer experience. The agency is a strategic partner, helping marketing leaders make smarter investment decisions, grounded in data insights.

Rise has accomplished its growth by taking a data-driven approach to marketing, maintaining a razor-sharp focus on client performance, and reinvesting the profits back into the business.  It manages enterprise-level analytics and campaigns across all channels of digital marketing, including: paid search, SEO, email, display, social, affiliate, and comparison shopping engines. 

The agency takes a unique approach to digital marketing, applying its Interactive Investment Management (IIM) philosophy to client engagements.  Similar to the concept of a portfolio manager, the approach looks at an entire investment across digital marketing channels and shifts budgets based on performance and the opportunity to maximize returns.

An award-winning agency, Rise has been recognized as a leader in the digital marketing space and has received industry recognition for explosive growth, excellence in digital marketing, and company culture. Rise was named Digital Agency of the Year by the Moxie Awards and Built in Chicago in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. It was also named to Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For list in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and to the National Best and Brightest Companies to Work For list in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

The people at Rise are driven by a passion to bring new ideas to life. Both thinkers and doers, we have a real sense of urgency to make things better. Ever investigating, often inventing, and always enthusiastic, we challenge conventions and look between the lines to find new ways to challenge old ideas. 

We are committed to delivering remarkable experiences and superior results for our clients. This is done with an energy that can be seen and felt within our walls.

Our key focus is ensuring Risers are empowered to do the best work of their careers. And, we’re always looking to our employees for feedback and new ideas on how to further create and enhance our culture and workplace to make Rise an even better place to work.

    I have been working at Rise Interactive full-time

    Pros

    *Student loan assistance
    *Free gym on site
    *Commuter benefits
    *Parental leave, both for new moms and dads

    *Energetic, diverse culture
    *Growth opportunities
    *Challenging, various tasks
    *Happy hours and other company wide social events

    Overall, being a part of Rise is an exciting adventure! The Executives are down to earth - they join you for lunch, treat you to lunch, take you out for coffee, take you out to events or will have a drink with you. Everyone is responsive and works to achieve the goal - whether it's client related or if it's your own personal development. Your brain will definitely get a workout here as well - new challenges arise frequently. This should be expected as the internet is a changing, competitive market. You're not "pigeon-holed" either. Rise Interactive is a place where you have plenty of opportunity to learn, grow and gain a lot of experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes the place can get noisy - usually celebrating a win, but other times it's challenge related and everyone is trying to solve the challenge. Communication can be an issue as well - you could find yourself asking for the needed direction that was originally neglected, causing rework.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being down to earth and utilize those who are ambitious to make Rise a memorable experience that is different from others!
