sandbox – Why Work For Us?

Our agency was formed out of the desire to create something special. Instead of creating a holding company, we created Sandbox, a single agency created by agency owners, partners and leaders who love the business and serving our clients.

Our experience has shown us that the single biggest hurdle to a great client experience is a lack of collaboration. At Sandbox, collaboration is the name of our game. We create better, together. With over 400 employees across seven offices in two countries, we work together to deliver excellent work to our clients.

    Tons of opportunity. Entrepreneurial . We're building something special, something different. Change is a constant. We're growing. Get in and make a difference.


    Given where we are as a growing organization it can be messy. It's difficult. It's not for everyone. But if you capitalize on those key moments good things will follow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the people, the work, the clients and the rest will fall into place.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at sandbox (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.


    I had freelanced at the company for 2 months before being hired so it was brief. Much more of an on the job interview that ended with them "buying" me from the recruiter who placed me here. Typically it's 2 rounds meeting with a handful of employees of all levels and titles.
