Common Questions

Is there room for growth?
We continue to grow steadily, which allows for upward mobility and opportunities to earn leadership positions as they become available. There is plenty of opportunity for growth by participating in the YMC Krewe of Culture, FLY (Future Leaders of YMC Training Program) and more. At YMC, it doesn’t matter what your title is. Every person is expected to lead themselves to personal and professional growth.
What is the work life balance like?

We’re constantly evolving and trying to make work-life balance better. Progress, not perfection. Work doesn’t necessarily end at 5 pm and work may arise “off the clock” if you’re on the Strategist or Digital team. Allowing time for rest to reset and spend time enjoying life with friends and family is a priority. Compared to other agency cultures, we try our best to be respectful of boundaries.

What is the culture like?

Being a part of YMC gives you the opportunity to utilize your skills and creativity. It’s a great environment for creatives who are curious about new things and constantly seeking growth.

Why should I want to work at YMC?
Being a part of YMC gives you the opportunity to utilize your skills and creativity while working in a fun, family-like work environment. It’s a great environment for creatives who are curious about new things and constantly seeking growth.
Does YMC work with clients that are not credit unions?
Right now the answer is no. YMC has a specific niche in working with mission-focused credit unions that seek to change their communities by offering socially responsible loans and other financial products while combatting predatory lenders and “big bank” fees. While there are plenty of community banks that do great work, our focus right now is on the more than 5,000 credit unions that exist.
What's the key to succeeding at YMC?
Keep an open mind and never be afraid to ask a question. It’s not hard to make a mistake in any position at YMC, but those mistakes can be avoided when you take the time to ask the necessary questions. And when a mistake is made, we celebrate the opportunity to learn from it.
What are some YMC traditions?
As a team, we like to make sure that we make everyone on the team feel important. We like to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and promotions. We celebrate holidays/annual events such as Mardi Gras, National Wine Day, Christmas, etc. We also have a weekly meeting called “Think and Drink,” where our entire team comes together to apply creativity to help solve a client problem. Your drink of choice is welcome.
Are there remote work opportunities?
Yes! We have been a completely virtual team since 2021.

Current Openings

Let's Get Started!

Reh Harvey

Vice President of Digital Strategy

Reh Harvey, our Vice President of Digital Strategy, leads with diligence and fervor. Having previously been a member of Team YMC, he is excited to return to such an amazing culture and even more amazing people (his words)! Through his experience in the marketing world, he’s found the key to success is to stay on the cutting edge and to always keep evolving.
 
Although originally drawn to marketing for its lack of math, Reh now finds himself doing more math than he would’ve bargained for. But his self discipline and positive attitude make it easy for him to laugh and take it in stride. Hoping to one day visit Japan and enjoy some premium Sushi, Reh lives life by his creed: Be a good human. Do good work. And above all, just keep going.

Hailey Madej

Graphic Designer

As YMC’s in-house Graphic Designer, Hailey possesses an eye for detail and a drive to innovate. It’s no surprise though since being creative runs in the family! Inspired from an early age by her mom’s work as a Graphic Designer, Hailey is a seasoned expert whose talents bring vitality and accessibility to every project. As a UX/UI designer, she expertly blends the intuitive and the creative for all to enjoy.
 
In addition to the occasional freelance project, Hailey also lends her abilities to supporting art initiatives within her community, such as the Belleville Mural Project. Her favorite aspect of joining the YMC team is the friendly, uplifting culture and breadth of design tasks. When it comes to marketing, she believes in pushing boundaries and maybe breaking some rules to capture her audience’s attention. Her advice to those just starting out? “Always seek quality over quantity.”

Dexter Ochoa

Development Assistant

When it comes to blending logical thinking and creative problem solving, Dexter’s abilities are undeniable! Beginning his career as a Web Developer, he’s no stranger to the wide world of Marketing and Advertising. Calling Biñan City in the Philippines home, Dexter has a burning desire to visit the Alpine peaks and valleys of Switzerland. While that journey may be far off, he is still no stranger to international travel. While visiting Japan, he was able to enjoy his favorite delicacy: Sushi and Sashimi. He also learned unexpected facts about Japanese Yen, specifically that it has special markings for the blind to know its value!

Living life by his motto to “Do good even if the world is unfair,” Dexter would also advise his younger self, “It’s hard, but you’re doing good!” Whether he’s enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or the occasional Pale Pilsen in the evening, Dexter is eager to work with the talented professionals of YMC, and we’re just as eager to add his talent to the team as well! His marketing words of wisdom? “Be creative, and just do what you want!”

Andrew Wyche

Copywriter

Hailing from the NC state capital (that’s Raleigh if you didn’t know), Andrew is YMC’s Copywriter extraordinaire. That’s why he knows that “The verb form of ‘reconnaissance’ is ‘reconnoiter.’ The former is, strictly speaking, a noun.” Seriously, he knows his words and he’ll use those words to get bold and weird (in a good way) with his copy. Fuelled by a love for pasta, shellfish, a good single malt, or a meal consisting of all three, Andrew navigates life with a motto engraved in his heart: “Choose kindness. Always.” It is this guiding principle that has led him to explore the realm of marketing, driven by a desire to connect with people in meaningful ways. As he continues to chase his dreams, one bucket list item stands out above the rest – a pilgrimage to Scotland. With his heart set on adventure and his pen poised for creativity, Andrew’s journey is far from over.

Alex VanHaasteren

Senior Web Developer

Alex is YMC’s Senior Web Developer and, as the title suggests, she is an absolute pro! While she initially started in graphic design – working long and hard to expertly bring concepts to life – she also felt drawn to technology and applying her natural ability to problem solve. Web Development proved the perfect blend of her creative passion and technical savvy.

When Alex is out with friends – including her YMC colleagues – she’s up for Greek cuisine or some good pulled pork BBQ washed down with Diet Coke. Or an Old Fashioned, if the occasion demands. Someday, she hopes to go to Africa on a safari. Hopefully she’ll see a giraffe in the wild, because – as she’s pointed out – its neck is too short to reach the ground!

When she isn’t jamming out to T-Swift, she’s happy to impart some marketing words of wisdom, “Aim to create something unforgettable.” For day-to-day inspiration, she would remind you of two fundamental truths: You decide your happiness, and Ice cream is its own food group—not just a dessert.
