ON BOARD EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING 

On Board Experiential is an award-winning, full-service experiential marketing agency that creates meaningful brand experiences throughout the world from our home offices and physical office locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City (or from wherever our adventures take us!) Our clients include Nike, Facebook, J.P. Morgan Chase, Instagram, Cheez-It,  Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, and Salesforce (to name a few). Cool, cool, but what’s it like to work here? Event Marketer recognized OBE as one of the best places to work in events (2019), and we couldn’t agree more. The most important part of our business is our people. They are hardworking, brave and make magic happen on the regular. But under each majestic exterior, is a human deserving of a healthy work life balance. That’s why we believe in recovery days,  happy hours (virtual, if we must), friendly (but always competitive) fitness challenges, company retreats and yearbooks, and open meetings to facilitate discussions that heal, inspire, and bring us closer. We encourage each other to bring our whole selves to work. We want to hear about your lived experiences and authentic perspectives. We want you to be unapologetically you.
