Description & Requirements

Position Summary

Orion Worldwide is a global media company that generates value across our industry. We create value through investing with media owners in exchange for a discount on future media.

This is accomplished through Orion’s product offering: Capital, Barter, Fixed Price and Direct Response, via ID Media our sister agency.

 

Our employees, whom we call Orionites, have a work experience that combines the best of both worlds — an organization that cultivates a "small town" community ethos with all the advantages, opportunities and benefits of an organization within Interpublic Group (IPG), one of the “Big Five” advertising holding companies.

 

We look for people who possess the passion, innovative thinking and partnership skills to join our collaborative and diverse teams. No single person, or discipline, is responsible for success at Orion. Teamwork is the backbone for how we achieve our business goals and cultivate an inclusive culture in which we can all be proud. We strive for a vibrant culture of creativity, accountability, and connection – and believe we do a pretty good job!
