WORK LOCATION: A HYBRID WORK EXPERIENCE

At GroupM, we believe that work is a part of life, not the other way around. To support that belief, we have recently adopted a "collaboration-led" hybrid approach to work in order to provide employees with the flexibility to do the best work of their lives no matter where they are working. This means that for roles where it makes sense, you'll spend some of your time in our incredible workspaces (when it's safe to do so) and some of your time remote. Check out this updated list of where we can hire:
  • California - LA or SF
  • Colorado - Denver
  • Florida - Miami/Fort Lauderdale
  • Georgia - Atlanta
  • Illinois - Chicago
  • Massachusetts - Boston
  • Michigan - Detroit
  • New York - New York City tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT)
  • North Carolina - Raleigh/Durham
  • Texas - Austin or Dallas/Fort Worth
  • Utah - Salt Lake City
