Digital Strategy Team
What's it like to work at Adster?
Let’s face it - online marketing is a new and rapidly growing industry. Even if you’ve left school with your Marketing Degree, or Bachelor of Commerce, there is very little training if you’re interested in the field of digital marketing. Furthermore, click here if you want to know how to get a job in digital marketing!
Our experienced team helps nurture developing talent into online marketing rockstars, however, the first 90 days at Adster can be challenging and not everyone makes it (be ready to earn it, everyone else has). Those that do will tell you that 'life after 90' can be a truly rewarding experience and that work-life balance isn't something we put on our wall as a reminder, we live it every day!
In the end, we're a small agency, however, growth is NOT stagnant in our 'lil organization. If you continue to put in the work and demonstrate Adster's core values on a daily basis, there's plenty of opportunity to grow both personally & professionally within our little slice of agency heaven.
We enjoy casual attire, office snacks, monthly lunches and quarterly events, like "Feats of Strength", wich usually entails a series of mind bending, muscle tearing events like go-karting, arcade, jenga, pictionary and foosball tournaments. If you haven't heard of The Werewolves of Millers Hollow, you will soon enough.
Meeting rythmns are also a huge part of what makes Adster unique! We partake in daily huddles, weekly strategy meetings, 'Throwback Thursday' learning sessions, quarterly one-on-ones (where you set your quarterly goals for work-life balance, compensation targets & more!), quarterly hackathons, quarterly 'level 10' offsite meetings and yearly retreats!
If you love to work hard, enjoy a relaxed work atmosphere and want to work on challenging projects that are respected by your colleagues (and internationally recognized by Google Canada as a leader in our field!) - you’d fit right in!

A word on "perks" and a culture that ACTUALLY matters.
I think we’d all agree that "tech culture" or at least the appearance of tech culture is expected. Young, cool, hip, relaxed and flexible. So, if every single tech & marketing company in Alberta and across the universe promises this same working environment, how does Adster stand out?
Don’t get me wrong, we have all the prerequisite "cool" stuff, but if you’re coming to work at Adster because we have perks like free pop, an arcade and a foosball table, we have failed dismally in how we’re presenting ourselves. Our best bet is creating an environment - and a process - for figuring out what makes you uniquely you and ensuring that we’ve built a system around giving you the best support possible. More than this, I believe we've done an admirable job over the last 10 years, in allowing each team member to roll their own destiny when it comes to helping them build their dream job at Adster.
We genuinely care about improving the quality of your life through your experiences at Adster and we’re committed to backing those words up with real action. At its core, I think that’s what our culture is all about.
