Our Extended Team

Digital marketing transcends geography and we’ve scouted the globe to find the best talent for our clients. So while we might be an Arkansas company, as Project Manager you’ll be working with national (and sometimes international) industry experts. This diverse team comes together to share knowledge and collaborate on great accounts.

“Rock City Digital was a breath of fresh air as an employee coming from an organization where every suggestion was met with “nope, we don’t do it that way”. Every recommendation or idea I’ve offered in my past two years of employment has been genuinely and respectfully considered, and implemented more often than not. The flexibility and willingness to try something new if the old way isn’t working is reason enough to love my job, but there are so many more reasons to add to the list. RCD is a workplace where everyone truly wants to see you thrive, and leadership will pave the way to make it happen. Here, I am celebrated for being exactly who I am and the strengths I bring to the team, while encouraged to continue evolving and reaching for new heights. I never have to “watch my back” or second guess anyone’s intentions. I’ve never once been asked to work past my 40 hours. Working with clients will always have its challenges no matter where you work, but feeling genuinely peaceful, supported, and appreciated is something I’ve only felt at Rock City Digital.”

“Starting a new job can be intimidating but everyone on the team at Rock City Digital made me feel SO welcomed onto the team. After working for myself for years, I was nervous about going back into the world as an employee. But when I joined the team I was immediately celebrated for my unique perspective, experience, and ideas. Being given the autonomy and trust to make decisions and take action without fear of repercussions is something that I haven’t experienced as an employee, especially so quickly after joining the team. Everyone on the team is on the same page with our core values, and if you’re taking action with them in mind, you’re set up for success from the beginning! My favorite part of being on the team is that we are constantly trying to create a workplace that encourages growth in our careers as well as real work-life balance. We’re all seen as the amazing humans we are, not just another cog in the machine.”

Third Round Interviews will be held in person on April 23rd or April 24th at the Little Rock Tech Park. This interview will last somewhere between 1.5 – 2 hours depending on the skills assessment portion of the interview.

We believe that it’s important for you to know who you will be working closely with!

Common questions about working at RCD answered

What are your core values?

It’s important for us to find a core value fit for our team because we expect greatness from anyone who works here.

Are you remote, hybrid, or in office?

We are a fully remote team all located in Central Arkansas. We have some clients that prefer to meet in person so it’s important that our people are centrally located. We also have team meetings 3-4 times per year along with a multi-day team retreat. We believe that you can do great work at home but we also believe that it’s important to know who you’re working with too!

What is your work schedule each week?
We work Monday – Thursday 8 – 5 pm and Friday 8 – 1 pm. There is flexibility in your schedule so if you need to go to a Doctors appointment, you don’t have to take PTO but you may need to make it up somewhere in the week.
What is your PTO policy?
A new employee will get 14 days of PTO during their first year of employment and 21 days after the first full calendar year.
Are there any special perks?
We like to think we have a lot of perks here at RCD! We believe that if you work hard and produce great results, that you should have the freedom and flexibility you need to live a full life. We work a 4.5-day work week, offer an amazing PTO policy, have flexible schedules, and get to work from home. We also take off the week between Christmas & New Year’s, have medical & insurance, and retirement plans, and we are working on a profit-sharing plan as well.
