SmartBug is more than a digital marketing agency—we’re an intelligent inbound marketing agency of inbound strategy, design, web development, public relations, and marketing automation experts. And, we’re the highest rated agency among all of HubSpot’s partners.
Client-side marketing experience
Your success depends on more than a methodology. That’s why SmartBug hires marketing strategists with 10+ years of client-side experience. Our focus is not simply on the campaign launch, but the full campaigns and their results. In fact, we built SmartBug as a 100 percent remote employee model so we could attract the best talent from across the country. Our team comes from brands such as HubSpot, FCB, Seagate, HBO, Gartner, Deloitte & Touche, Electronic Arts, and UBM.
No interns or offshoring
You hired an agency because you wanted a trusted expert with a vested interest in your success. That’s why we don’t use interns or offshore our work. You work with SmartBug employees. No faux marketers. No black box processes. Just solid professionals that want to win for you.
Life is about creating memories. Work is about achieving amazing things. At SmartBug you can do both. Join our award-winning team of whip-smart, passionate marketers, creatives, and developers in a progressive 100% remote environment.
We offer medical, dental, vision, 401(k), FSA, short and long-term disability, PTO and paid company holidays, as well as the freedom flexibility of a remote work environment. And you get to attend the now world-famous SmartBugapalooza, our fun-in-sun annual conference.

Advice to Management
Continue to be transparent and take care of your employees. More PTO or sick days not taken out of PTO would be very helpful.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SmartBug Media (Sacramento, CA) in March 2020.
A set of calls, video calls, and an interview "task" to show competency and philosophy. Everyone was really nice and I was impressed with the thoroughness of the interview. The company contacted me letting me know they froze hiring due to COVID-19.
