Uhuru Careers

Uhuru means “freedom” in Swahili.

Work from wherever you want, and virtually whenever, with an internet connection. Create your own work schedule—we live on several different continents, so your coworkers work at different times!

As long as you complete your activities, contribute to client success, hit deadlines, and show up for meetings, then feel free to work from a cafe, while traveling across the globe, or even from the beach. Some of us have kids or pets and prefer to spend much of our digital marketing careers in our PJs. Just have one goal in mind while doing so: always leave people better than you found them. This is your job to do so for clients and our job to do for YOU in return.

What’s It Like to Work at Uhuru?

Why Uhuru

Why Uhuru: Are You
Exceptional?

We believe that diversity is a business’s greatest asset. Working with coworkers that come from all walks of life encourages people to challenge their way of thinking. And what better way to broaden our talent pool than by widening our search for passionate, hardworking individuals across the globe?

Several years ago, we made the switch to become a 100 percent remote team so that our employees could create the work-life balance they want and deserve. As one of the truly remote companies out there today, our fully distributed team can set their schedules to make time for family, travel, fitness goals, and anything else that they value in their lives.

Our Core Values
(What Matters Most to Us?)

Our core values are the rules and boundaries that define our company’s culture and personality and provide a final “should/shouldn’t” test for everyone’s behaviors and decisions in the company. In simplest terms, it’s the soul of Uhuru. Let’s break it down so you can see what the best digital marketing careers should be like:

Always Educate

Here, although you will learn a lot in your first 90 days, alone—we never stop learning. Even the most senior-level experts should keep brushing up on their skills and knowledge, as times are changing, and we want everyone to be abreast of trends, so we have the best strategies for our clients. We will provide those opportunities to you for continued education because it’s important to us.

Encourage Individual Initiatives

As much fun as you’ll have here, we recognize it’s not your whole life. We want you to have hobbies on the side. Pick up crafting, a new sport, or anything else that fulfills your non-work passions and feel the support of the team behind you all the way.

Hyper Communication & Clear Expectations

Unlike other digital marketing careers, you won’t have someone breathing down your neck in a cubicle or knocking on your office door. Yet, we still highly value collaboration. We’re fully remote, so we build enough mutual trust with you that we can be confident you will regularly keep in touch with us through our various cloud-based tools—and not leave any team member hanging.

We have daily team check-ins called Huddles, so it’s nearly impossible to feel stuck for long—and trust us, you won’t feel like your coworkers are strangers. We also encourage social chatter via our digital channels, not just talk about assignments—get to know one another like any traditional, in-person job!

Good Fit

You may be a hard worker, but if we don’t share values—or you’re not a nice person—we might not be a good match. Culture is a crucial part of how we function. It’s been proven repeatedly that any team works best when they like each other!

You might be a good fit for Uhuru if you have self-initiative, like to improve continually, hyper-communicate, like working with groups, work hard to deliver your best work and results for clients, have a positive attitude, work hard and love what you do. If you’re looking for an easy marketing job, this is not the place.

Practice What We Preach

Actions speak louder than words, especially when it comes to digital marketing careers. See these values? We stick to them. We live by them each and every day. We don’t say things unless we really mean them. This list has been tried and tested and has resulted in better outcomes for our clients and team members alike. Each is a calculated and key piece of our overall strategy for success.

Leave People Better Than We Found Them

Starting to sound familiar? This is one of our all-time favorite mottos. We want to offer considerable value to every person that virtually walks through our digital doors. We are a smaller company, and we have not been around for eons. So we need to have a greater impact than the larger agencies. And we are dedicated to making a noticeable difference in the companies we work with.

Give Them More than What They Expect

We are not ones for doing the bare minimum. Again, we believe digital marketing careers should be about delivering exceptional value. Any opportunity we see to do so, we jump to the chance. We like our clients to know that we aren’t in the game to make money—we are here to genuinely help them grow to heights they’ve never seen before.

Uhuru’s Principles

Uhuru is confident in its culture. We even have a Uhuru Culture Bible, which team members use to hold each other accountable.

We are super team-oriented. We are not a selfish clan. We see things in a “we” mentality and are proud of this mindset. Our ability to move through projects seamlessly, as a single entity, makes the quality of what we create that much stronger.

No question is a bad question. The more you ask, the more you learn. We would rather you be open, honest, and inquisitive with us than stay silent and feel lost. We are here for you, so never be afraid to speak up!

There is no room for someone to be MIA with the digital marketing careers we offer. We like to have equal weight and ownership in what we deliver for clients. This company is your baby, too, not just that of the founders’.

We’re big on respect. All ideas matter, but in the end, it’s not just about us—it’s about making the client happy. Be willing and able to appreciate different perspectives.

For digital marketing careers—or really, any job that you sincerely care about with every fiber of your being—if you learn something new, spread the knowledge. It may do the group well for others to know what you just found out, too. Plus, you’ll feel good helping your teammates grow. Once again, add value wherever possible. And lead by example! It might benefit us all, as a whole.

Even the little things count in digital marketing careers like these. You should be detail-oriented and be willing to follow our processes to a T to help ensure things keep on flowing. Our scrum framework is there to help us be—and stay—agile! We pride ourselves on getting a lot done for clients in less time due to the precise, proven procedures we’ve developed over the years.

We’re in it to win it (for our clients). Are you? Are you prepared to give your all and create your best work yet? We work hard and play hard, so if you can see yourself in that type of environment, you just might find a home at Uhuru.

Remember, we are counting on you to be a real asset to the team and be someone upon whom others can rely. Maintaining a well-functioning remote landscape requires having a team in which we can have immense confidence—and one where all members can have full faith in one another.

We always do our best at that moment. But we always expect to find a better way eventually. In essence, we know everything we are doing now is going to be replaced eventually by something else. All of our processes are already “broken.”

Keep in mind, it’s your team. It’s who you’ll spend a big part of your day with, so you’ll be getting really comfortable with them. If you can’t, it simply might not work out.

The ability to work so well as a cohesive unit has always been a significant driving force behind everything we do. You have a hand in helping to make work a great experience for all. It’s all about how you treat each other. There are even times we have taken our team’s side over a client’s if we truly believe it’s right in those circumstances.

Things should always be able to be worked out. Revisit #7 if you need a refresher of this concept. There’s no “I” in “team,” and while it’s good to stand up for yourself, be sure you’re not putting others down or leaving zero room for varying opinions. Not being agreeable will slow the work—if not making progress impossible. We are the future, so strive to move the needle forward.

We’re not sneaky—we are a transparent organization. When there’s company news, you’ll hear it. Be kept in the loop on all important happenings (goes with being honest! It’s not just your promise to us, it’s our commitment to you… see #4).
