Work With Us

Working at Substance means being part of a close-knit, highly creative, hard-working team. We have an open, collaborative, results-only work environment. We work with some of the most amazing clients in the world like Travel Oregon, Pinehurst Resort, The North Face, Nike, Nutcase Helmets, and the Oregon Coast Visitors Association (to name just a few). Along with working with these great clients, we offer a benefits package that includes health, dental and vision benefits, 401k matching, and First Fridays Free where the first Friday of each month is a paid day off (get your work done, then go play).

Get to know us a little.

We’re a team of friendly, hard-working Portlanders who have a process-driven and proven approach to interactive projects which leads to awesome work. Join us.

Today we had our State of Substance for 2014. A huge thanks to all of our team and our clients for a fantastic year. Here's to 2015!
Our clients know us so well... thanks @keen for the holiday gift!
You know, just hanging out with Fabio like you do when in LA. #lategram
"So no one told you life was gonna be this way." Doing a little sightseeing while in L.A., and with our love of coffee, how could we pass up Central Perk? #wbtour
Happy Holidays from @pinehurstresort #substancefieldtrip
Good morning from Pinehurst Resort. #substancefieldtrip
One of the benefits of travel is getting to sample local/regional beers. Highland Brewing from Asheville, NC makes a pretty good one.
Working with travel/tourism clients means there are opportunities for travel. We're heading to the east coast for a little in-person inspiration. #substancefieldtrip

If you're at Columbia Land Trust's Wild Splendor event, you'll probably see us here! #wildsplendor
Tried to get all four flavors (the others are bacon Mac & cheese, mango salsa, and wasabi ginger) but all Fred Meyer had was cappuccino. Probably the only one worth trying.
The Shadow Burger at Club 21. #portlandburgerweek - bacon, onion ring, tomato jam - pretty darn good.
