Our Company Values

  • Emphasis on Trust
  • Mission-Based
  • Excellence Freaks
  • Family-First
  • The People are Everything

We believe trust is everything—with our readers, our advertisers, and our team.

We are mission-based; this means sometimes we do things that don’t make money because we believe it’s important to the city and for our readers.

We are excellence freaks. Everything we create or that has our brand on it should be relevant, remarkable, bold, stylish, and authoritative.

We are family-first, no questions asked.

We do not make or sell widgets—our people are our everything and we are dedicated to building a work environment where they can innovate, create, and thrive.

Development

We are entrepreneurial and the people who thrive take advantage of the range of opportunities and new experiences that they can get their hands on—or create for themselves with leadership’s guidance. ​

As a company, we’re committed to personal growth and creating a space for open dialogue about how to grow; we have a companywide quarterly review process that ensures that you and your manager are on the same page about your performance and goals, and the owners doors are always open. ​

Involvement

Everyone can be a leader at D and we have a number of ways to get more involved in helping shape the future of our company and our culture:​

  • Culture Club
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council
  • Weekly Team Huddles

With representatives from across the company, this employee group helps gauge the pulse of folks, plans events, happy hours, fitness and mental health activities, volunteer days, and much more. 

More than a sounding board, this group sets target goals for the company’s DEI efforts and supports managers in hiring, training, and retention initiatives to ensure that all feel a sense of belonging—and that D better reflects the city which we serve.

Lead the weekly meeting that sets us up for success—whether it’s sharing your own wins, championing the hard work of others, or revealing the latest cover story, everyone has a chance to shine in front of their peers with deserved recognition.

Benefits

  • Time Off For Adults
  • Health is Wealth

Aka we don’t have a vacation policy. We trust you to get your job done, be a team player, and take the time you need to recharge, reset, and live your life outside of work. ​

D Magazine Partners offers health insurance, vision, dental, life insurance + disability, 401k planning, and more for full-time employees and their families. No tracking of sick days or mental health time off either. ​
