At Wordbank, we’re more than just a marketing localization agency, we’re a community committed to transparency, social impact, and professional growth. We believe in fostering an environment that values collaboration, innovation, and personal development.

Values-led & People-first: Being values-led means operating to the triple-bottom-line standards of people, planet, profit. Put simply, we do business with integrity. We care. Not because it’s company policy or because caring sells, but because we’re passionate about what we do, who we are, and the difference we can make – not just to our clients, but to our staff, our resources, and our community.

We believe that our people are our greatest asset, that our culture sets us apart from most every competitor we face, and that our commitment to what we can achieve together is unrivaled in our industry.

We’re intent on standing out (and up) for what drives us. When our values (drive, connection, excellence, care, connection, creativity) come together, that’s the Wordbank difference. Our values inform our behaviours and decision-making in all that we do, and makes us who we are, striving to do, and be, our best for each other and our clients every day.

Transparent Culture of Feedback & Accountability: We believe in openness and honesty. Our transparent culture encourages open communication, feedback, and accountability at all levels to make sure everyone’s voice is heard and valued. Everyone should have the right information and context to make decisions in the best interests of the business.

Freedom & Flexibility that works for you: We are committed to providing a culture based on freedom and responsibility and we understand the importance of work-life balance. Embracing flexibility means offering remote work options, flexible hours, and tailored schedules that allow you to excel both personally and professionally. We also like to connect and engage so we ask any local Wordbankers to come into the office a minimum of 2-3 times a week.

Commitment to business as a force for good: Beyond business success, we are committed to making a positive impact on society and the environment. Through our work and initiatives, we volunteer and contribute to causes that matter, fostering a sense of purpose in everything we do. And we don’t just talk about things, we follow through with action. Our Denver office is a certified B Corporation and our London office is Investors in People: Gold, both stringent certifications that prove we’re walking the walk on our commitment.

Mentorship and development: We prioritize your growth. Join a team that values mentorship, coaching, and invests in your professional development. We want to empower you to find your path and we will support you in getting you to the next step.

We are looking for passionate people to grow the business (and themselves) with us. We care more about how you think than what you know. We work hard. We work smart. And we have fun with each other while we’re doing it.
