Careers

What we do at Shaker matters. We help to connect people with jobs. That takes smarts and creativity. Ideas and innovation. That takes great people of many talents. And that is exactly what we have at Shaker. There’s so much we can accomplish together. Join us.

Our Philanthropy

We may live and breathe advertising, but giving back is the heart of our organization. Our legacy of philanthropy can be traced back to our founder, Joseph R. Shaker, whose generous spirit we work hard to advance each day.

SHAKER CARES

Shaker Cares comprises ongoing efforts, including monthly collections for causes, periodic charity drives and events, and more.

ST. JUDE

We have a strong connection and involvement with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as Joseph R. Shaker was a pioneering board member of ALSAC, the organization that founded St. Jude over 50 years ago. We’re proud to follow in his footsteps.
