As a full-service digital agency, DEG, a Merkle Company fuses creativity, strategy, and technology to meet our clients’ customers in the moments that matter most. We have become one of the fastest-growing and most-respected agencies in the country because our clients demanded it.

It’s incredibly difficult to both rapidly grow a business and maintain an award-winning culture, but that’s exactly what DEG has done for nearly 20 years. DEG appeared on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies in the US nine consecutive years, has been a Kansas City Business Journal Best Place to Work nine times, was named an Ingram’s Magazine Corporate Champion for its philanthropic work, and won a Digiday WorkLife Award for its parental leave policies.

These characteristics that define DEG came together in 2019 when DEG was one of only four agencies nationally to be both an Ad Age Best Place to Work and a member of the Adweek 100 fastest-growing agencies in the same year.

A Culture of Entrepreneurship

The concept behind DEG’s management style is simple: if you have an idea for how to grow the business, and you can prove your case, we will hand you the keys to make it happen. Along with the ability to move up into new positions, our associates are also able to move side to side into new roles and teams or create an entirely new position that didn’t exist before but fills a need. This freedom is just one of the reasons why DEG has a retention rate of more than 85 percent, all while growing by more than 150 percent in the last five years.

DEG’s environment balances the professionalism that clients expect with a causal, comfortable environment that allow associates to be most effective. DEG’s headquarters features a coffee bar with free coffee and beer, a café with free soda and juice and other items for sale, a number of collaboration and single-use stations, and a theater featuring 115 inches of TV screens. Our associates are given the flexibility and balance to enjoy their lives, coupled with nearly 50 company cultural events per year to stay connected to their co-workers in a non-work setting.

Training and Benefits

Digital marketing is changing nearly every day, and as experts in the industry, it is our job to stay on top of the evolving trends, strategies, and technologies. That’s why DEG places a strong focus on continuous learning and development. We encourage our associates to stay up-to-date in whatever way they can, whether it be through webinars, conferences, industry clubs, training courses, trade publication subscriptions, etc.

In addition to a competitive salary, DEG recently updated its employee benefits. Along with the already existing 401k, flex spending accounts, discounted gym memberships, and corporate wellness programs, DEG also implemented new maternity and paternity leave, military leave, while also moving to an unlimited flexible time off system.

Community Service

DEG takes pride in ensuring a high level of social corporate responsibility. We developed the DEG Foundation and became affiliated with the national Pledge 1% initiative, where we donated more than 1,000 hours of work and more than $50,000 to tremendous Kansas City nonprofits, such as Open Options, Make-A-Wish, HopeBuilders, The Children’s Place, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and more in 2017 alone.
