Interested in joining our team? We're hiring!

Red Dot is a small, integrated advertising and design agency—but we think big. And that means you can have a big impact here, too. We work in a loft-like space in historic Valley Junction within walking distance of several locally-owned restaurants. (Acai bowl, anyone?) And we’re very passionate about what we do—but we’re also passionate about our hobbies, too—so we make time for both. 

Our senior-level team is serious about our work (clients like that) without having serious egos (we like that). Did we mention we have a patio upstairs that we frequent on Fridays? ‘Cause we do.
