kWh of energy saved

When you have a natural light source, why block it? Our office has several skylights that let nature’s light bulb do its thing. We keep the lights dimmed when it’s light out, saving energy and cutting bulb waste.

Lbs. of trash recycled

We diligently recycle our metals, plastics, and glass--and we generate very little paper waste. As a digital agency, we prefer to keep our files in the cloud and our PDFs on the screen.

50737.04

Lbs. of CO2 offset

Carbon offsets cool our electricity and fuel use, and we buy renewable energy credits for the servers that power our clients' websites 24/7. These sites support wind farm construction.

1209.233

Gallons of gasoline saved

70% of our team members walk or bike to work, use public transportation or telecommute. Besides being healthier and less stressful than sitting in traffic, it cuts back on pollution and gas consumption. And honking.

Benefits and Perks


$1,000 Educational Stipend

Take a course. Attend a conference. Buy some books. You’ll be able to spend $1,000 a year on educational opportunities that make you better at what you do.

Parental Leave

We’re proud to support our new parents! Emerge offers maternity/paternity leave benefits to support this most important time in our lives.

Living in Balance

We mean it when we say we value keeping the balance of work and life in check. You’ll work hard, tackle rewarding projects, and maintain a firm grip on your own life.

Rack Up the PTO

Start with 15 paid days off (plus 10 paid holidays) in your first year. Add 5 additional days of PTO after three years.

Bring Your Pet

And by “pet,” we do mean “well-behaved canine.” (It’s best to leave your chickens and snakes at home.) Hounds make us happy, so we’ve made our office a pooch-friendly place.

Work Remotely

Reduce your commute time by working from home (or a café, or artisan ice cream parlor, or bike mechanic’s shop — wherever you concentrate best) two days each week.

Health Benefits Galore

Take advantage of our exceptional medical and dental coverage. We also offer long-term disability insurance, 401(k) investments and more.

Enjoy Coming to Work!

Our Portland HQ is in the heart of Portland’s West End neighborhood, surrounded by world class dining and all sorts of transit. We’ve got secure bike parking, sofas, shower, and yes… a meditation room.

Good Times

Happy hours, athletic events, summer parties… we know how to let our hair down and love to blend life with work!
