Nerdherd Life

We Work Hard,
We Play Hard

...and we understand the intrinsic value of a great GIF.

Walking through the doors at Adpearance, you may notice something odd right away—everyone seems like they want to be here. Not only do we love what we do, but we get to do it in an environment that is encouraging and supportive. We are each other’s cheerleaders. We celebrate group victories and individual achievements.

The camaraderie and awkward jokes extend beyond the building. It’s not unusual to find Nerds hanging out together in downtown Portland. And every Friday, we pick a restaurant for Fun Lunch and head out as one big herd. It isn’t compulsory, but let’s be real, Fun Lunch is fun.

Community

We are passionate about education, and this passion extends beyond our client engagement model and into our community. We have an internship program and regularly host students wanting to learn more about the world of advertising and marketing. Members of our team also serve as marketing and business mentors in the Portland area.

Growth

We believe in rewarding hard work, strategic thinking, and ambition. Adpearance is a rapidly growing company, and even though we’ve been around the block a few times, we maintain the energy of a startup. We won’t hold you back with artificial boundaries like age or agency tenure. Individual achievement comes down to your work, your smarts, and your energy.

Team Benefits

We’re home to some of the brightest individuals in the world of digital advertising, but egos get checked at the door. Our collaborative approach to solving our clients’ business challenges means big wins for our clients, and it also means we benefit from an incredible depth of collective wisdom. We come from many different backgrounds and challenge each other in constructive ways.

August's Book

Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk
Goodreads

Twelve-year-old Crow has lived her entire life on a tiny, isolated piece of the starkly beautiful Elizabeth Islands in Massachusetts. Abandoned and set adrift on a small boat when she was just hours old, Crow's only companions are Osh, the man who rescued and raised her, and Miss Maggie, their fierce and affectionate neighbor across the sandbar. Crow has always been curious about the world around her, but it isn't until the night a mysterious fire appears across the water that the unspoken question of her own history forms in her heart. Soon, an unstoppable chain of events is triggered, leading Crow down a path of discovery and danger. Vivid and heart wrenching, Lauren Wolk's "Beyond the Bright Sea" is a gorgeously crafted and tensely paced tale that explores questions of identity, belonging, and the true meaning of family.
