Matter works with winners

Brains, guts and gusto. The holy trinity of traits we look for in PR professionals. We’re looking for people who punch above their weight class. We covet folks who don’t put themselves before the greater good of the client or their teams.

Staff Perspectives

  • There are a lot of reasons why I love PR agency life—the variety of work, the creativity, the fast paced environment. Every day is a new challenge! What really sets Matter apart though are the amazing people who work here. I’ve never worked with a more talented, supportive and just truly genuine bunch. We collaborate and work hard for our clients, but we also have a lot of fun along the way. It’s like a family here and I love being a part of that.

  • Having been at Matter for well over a decade now, it’s remarkable just how much the culture feels like it hasn’t changed one bit. I love the people I work with every day – colleagues and clients – and we all share a passion for rolling up our sleeves, never accepting the status quo, and also laughing and celebrating together.

  • After graduating college I was searching for an agency that would help me grow as a professional in a work-hard, play-hard environment. Fortunately enough, I found that and so much more with Matter. The people I interact with on a daily basis are smart, hard-working, and just all around good people. I am constantly empowered and inspired by my colleagues to deliver high-quality results for my clients.
