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.
