Why Join?

Creo Agency is a private company headquartered in the sunshine city of Klamath Falls, Oregon. We are located halfway between San Francisco and Portland, with an hour flight to both. This enables us to keep the small-town outdoor lifestyle we love, while simultaneously tapping into the latest technology and design trends. We specialize in discovery, UX design, UI design, and development for web and mobile apps.

Culture

At Creo, our team members are valued for their skills and play an important role in the sites and apps we build. We value learning and taking on challenges. We also enjoy each other and have a fun time crafting solutions as a team. We believe that nights and weekends are for family and recreation; so we keep a fair work schedule.

Final Pitch

If you're tired of working the agency-standard 80-hours a week, and ready to take back the time you currently lose in your three-hour commute, or you're just getting out of college and want to join up with a creative group, please apply. Perhaps you'll be the next fortunate soul to join the Creo Outifit.
