Why Work With Us

Do you want to redefine media and shape the face of local? We are currently hiring talented, resourceful people who want to create real change. Come join a band of committed people who make a difference every day.

Culture

OwnLocal has a culture of ownership, humor, and mastery. Our team is small enough to allow you to see how your work affects the bottom line, and large enough to be stable. We appreciate that work schedules can be personal, but we very much value the time we spend together as a team. You’re an adult and we treat you like one. We like to experiment. We're proud to make mistakes (but more proud of our successes). We're always improving. One of our least favorite phrases is, “That’s how it’s always been done.” We encourage a inquisitive and curious spirit at OwnLocal, knowing that the only certainty is change.

Perks & Benefits

  • Yeah, we do competitive salaries, 100% paid medical / dental coverage, Free Life Insurance, and blah, blah... please.
  • The best office space in Austin, TX. Our brand new office is very purposefully located near all of the downtown staples. Think Handlebar, The Backspace, and Medici.
  • 24x7 stocked kitchen + free lunch. As if free catered daily lunch wasn’t enough, we provide all of the snacks, local beer, coffee, Topo Chico, and Redbull you’ll ever need!
  • Team fitness challenges. Free mandatory Fitbit. Track your results, compete with your team, and win cash prizes. This is not a drill.
  • Free starbucks coffee. Like coffee? So do we. Howard Schultz went to the trouble of putting a Starbucks on every corner, so why fight it? Anywhere in America, we've got you covered.
  • Free car2go anywhere in Austin, TX. We're making it even easier to get around town.
  • Unlimited vacation. 100% open vacation policy. Seriously. Take time off when you need to, and come back refreshed and ready to work. In addition, we also have quarterly company off-site meetings.
  • But wait! There’s more. We know how to have fun. Team outings, continuing education, and company events are an important part of our culture. Our team members love Harry Potter, sports, pinball, and everything in between. No matter what your thing is, you’ll have a place at OwnLocal.
