Wpromote Chicago

Welcome to the Chicago office! We're located right next to the Sears tower, literally across the street. This puts us in the heart of the Windy City, about 10 minutes from a major Chicago landmark - The Bean!

We’re the second oldest office but the latest in Wpromote’s Fixer Upper series. Veterans like us get incredible views and an on-site gym! We're continuing to grow and offer some pretty awesome perks such as: Monthly Subsidized CTA/Metra fare, free use of state-of-the-art gym in the building, Office Snacks and Drinks, and Team Events like our annual office bowling event, Cubs and Sox games and many more!

Our team also loves to enjoy happy hours throughout the city (we may or may not have a spreadsheet broken out by day of the week), throw holiday-related potlucks (Christmas in July, anyone?) and host Fine Wine Fridays in the office (better brush up on your beer pong!) We also love giving back and volunteering together with non-profits around the city such as Open Books & PAWS.

Come join our team. We're excited to eat deep dish pizza with you!
