Greetings from Mostly Serious (well, from this job posting from Mostly Serious)! If you saw that we were hiring an Account Manager and then you looked at this thing, then we’re most of the way through making this all work for everybody. And, more importantly, if you’re interested in working on a team that values improving our community, perpetually enhancing your skills, and making great things (all while working with local, regional, and national clients), then we’re even closer to being a perfect fit for you.

Maybe you also like snacks. And flexibility. And you don’t mind the color orange. Sound like you? Let’s keep going.

Who are we?

That’s, like, a really existential question, but we’ll give it a shot. We’re Mostly Serious, a full-service digital agency producing award-winning, community-enhancing, national-brand-showcasing, best-in-the-region strategy, research, websites, and digital marketing campaigns.

At a more fundamental level, we’re a team of 13 critical thinkers who are obsessed with producing great work. Work that makes people feel differently about how beautiful and functional websites can be. Work that helps our clients serve their communities, tell their stories, and achieve their goals. And work that pushes us to challenge ourselves, refine our skills, and get better each and every day.

What do we do?

We design and build custom, scalable websites backed by stellar platforms like Craft CMS. We help our awesome clients grow their brands through brand identity development, logo design, and strategy. We write powerhouse content that actually, really converts. We concept and execute commercials, web videos, and custom animations that cut through the noise. And we're deeply invested in understanding our clients with the kind of hard-sought truth and insights only achievable through research. We do everything that makes us worthy of the phrase "full-service" and makes each day's work more unique and challenging than the last.

From left to right: We pet our dogs and other people's dogs. We create stuff that's on-point for brand audiences and good for your soul. We stroll along Greenway Trail when the weather's nice. We collaborate together, challenge each other, and embrace honest conversations that lead to the right solution. We keep a supply of confetti and balloons on hand. We dress our office up for fun and we dress ourselves up to match.

Plus, we reject ideas and standards that don't call back to our six core values and guiding principles.
