Mallorie Wilson

Director of Human Resources

Mallorie is a 15-year HR veteran who, after a long stint with Aflac in Indiana, moved west for the surf and sunshine—and found a compatible home with Moontide. “I was drawn to the company’s genuine warmth and collaborative mindset,” she says. “What I tell prospective hires comes from my own experience here—that at Moontide you’re a name, not a number. You’re made to feel part of a team. And you never have to worry about hitting a ceiling.” Mallorie feels right at home in the agency’s creative environment—she worked her way through university as a cosmetologist, and she’s still handy with the tools of that trade.

Join us

Moontide celebrates all of these qualities—and we like to work with people who do the same.

Los Angeles Office

We work hard, play hard and believe in giving back to the community and our employees. Click around and see what we're all about.

Moontide sees you as a whole person, and we treat you accordingly—with support, respect, dignity, and the understanding that work and life can be integrated, enjoyable and growthful. We believe in supporting healthy boundaries to make time for ourselves—time to grow and learn, and time to chill and laugh, inside the office and out. Culture

Ours is an ownership culture. We want our people to have a piece of the action, so we offer an equity investment plan as well as a 401(k) retirement plan. Employee-Owned

Time is precious. And available to you in the form of paid holidays, paid sick leave, and unlimited paid time off (take that vacay!). Our parental leave policy means new moms and dads get paid time to spend with their hatchlings. Time

A monthly wellness allowance is yours to use as you wish: for the gym, for yoga, for the golf course next door, for your surfboard fund, or that ukulele class you've been wanting to take. Wellness

All work and no play is so not our style. Moontide is a creative place, and we like to play and work creatively. We host regular happy hours, plot escapes to the beach, make bowling a team sport, invent excuses for spontaneous shuffleboard tournaments, and have more holiday get-togethers than there are actual holidays. Fun

We're proud of our pro bono work with organizations and services that can benefit from our efforts. We also regularly match our employees' donations to causes, and eagerly dive into community efforts such as food drives and beach cleanup. In this same spirit, we support each other in times of need, emotionally, physically, and fiscally. Causes

Everyone at Moontide is encouraged to be their own unique self—to pursue passions outside of work, and even to bring them inside. We support our people as artists, creators, coders, influencers, makers, and more. Passions

The Library Sessions in our El Segundo headquarters are a time to savor fresh sounds from California artists who perform acoustic sets in our intimate library. And yes, we take requests. Sessions

We're lifetime learners and as such, we are big fans of hosting expert Lunch & Learn presentations on all sorts of topics, ranging from crypto to meditation. We order tasty delivery, absorb expertise, and end with a lively Q&A. We also offer employees an allowance for books, conferences and individualized learning opportunities. Lifetime Learning

Moontide dogs are among the most popular characters around our pet-friendly El Segundo office. Our first-floor location makes egress a breeze when nature calls, or if it's just time for a stroll. Pets

We maintain a hybrid model in our El Segundo office: Work from home or work in our open, friendly office space. All work is remote for our other locations. Flexibility

We dial you in with the tools you need, whether state-of-the-art Macs or best-in-class equipment and software. With our centralized virtual phone system, your home office is a true workplace, and we add in a monthly technology allowance for the best possible connectivity. Tech

We help you navigate life at Moontide and support your career in this industry through internal mentorship—the opportunity to learn from some of our leading agents of change—and external executive coaching, to hone your leadership skills. We also work with a consultant who helps hone presentation skills. Mentorship

We provide generous medical, dental, and vision insurance. Life insurance, too. Plus maternity and paternity leave, Flexible Spending Accounts, and optional supplemental insurance that covers copays and unexpected expenses that might arise. Benefits

We offer generous compensation for referrals that lead to new-employee hires, as well as an incentive plan for successful client referrals. In fact, the majority of our client relationships originate from in-house referrals. Referrals
