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.

This Month's Book Club Pick


January's Book

Becoming by Michelle Obama
Goodreads

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, BECOMING is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.
