A guide to our company culture.

The Vision

When I first thought about starting this company I had a vision. My vision was that one day everyone would be a content creator. That was back in 2005, and a lot has changed. YouTube. Twitter. Facebook. iPhone. iPad. Snapchat. Our world has been transformed radically in a very short period of time. From students to grandparents, billions of people are finding their voice via the Internet. The vision is becoming a reality faster than I had ever imagined.

We are the pioneers fueling the democratization of information, entertainment, marketing and commerce. Our platforms fund the American dream for the next generation of artists, poets, film makers, photographers, thought leaders, comics, actors and musicians. What you do here will impact hundreds of thousands of people directly and influence the actions of millions more.

Open Arms

At IZEA, we seek to change and further the lives of the Creators we serve.

Doing this on a daily basis requires a team that embodies, embraces, and encourages diversity and inclusion. Our IZEA team is diverse in race, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion and physical ability. We collectively benefit from having a welcoming environment for all. IZEA is committed to have each and every member of our team feel included, safe, and happy in their work life.
When you are a part of #TeamIZEA, we want to support you as you balance working fully remote with your responsibilities outside of work. We understand there might be an occasional Zoom crasher (pet, kid, or partner) and we strive to create an environment where you can bring your authentic self to work each day. In fact, we have active Slack channels dedicated to sharing funny stories/pictures of our fur babies and human babies. Our personal and professional development opportunities are intended to help you thrive and flourish into the best version of yourself. We can’t wait to see what you bring to our team!

Uncorporate

Our corporate culture is anything but corporate.

There are no offices. No real dress code. No corporate BS. We work and interact with each other like a team, all working towards the same goals. You can speak your mind with our leadership team just like you would speak your mind with a friend. From happy hour trivia, lunch time drawing games, or costume contests, there is never a shortage of laughter around here.

We are an open, fast moving and free-spirited organization… but make no mistake, we are here to gsd and achieve our goals.

IZEA Cares

Giving back is an important part of what we do. Each quarter the entire company participates in a charitable activity where we give back. In addition, we encourage individual team members to engage in their own passion project and rally the support of other IZEA team members.

IZEAUp

IZEAUp is a monthly meeting of the entire company. The leaders of each department deliver a brief update to the entire team on their current projects, accomplishments, and future plans. Afterwards, we host a virtual happy hour event to encourage engagement.

IZEA Retreat

Once we can safely return to company wide gatherings, we will aim to bring the entire team together at least twice a year for 3 to 4 days of team building, training, vision, and recognition. These events are the stuff of legend and where many of your best memories and friendships at IZEA will be forged.
