Work At RPA



If you're one of the smartest folks in the industry and want to work with other smart folks in the industry, we'd love to talk to you.

RPA is the largest independent, privately owned full-service advertising agency in Southern California. Our mission as an agency is to unlevel the playing field. That naturally applies to our clients, but it applies to our Associates, too. We want your time at RPA to be a competitive advantage in your life and career.


We're known for our culture of collaboration, respect, opportunity, and fun. We work smart around here — crazy-makers and ego-machines need not apply. Work/Life balance matters to us.

Your Future

RPA's long-standing client relationships provide opportunities to work with award-winning, top-tier brands on campaigns that make a real difference in their business. Plus, our UPGRADE training and mentorship program is designed to give motivated Associates every opportunity to learn, grow, and become industry superstars. Over 20 percent of our 500+ Associates have been with RPA for over 10 years, which is a testament to shared loyalty and career-growth opportunities available.


Associates and their families enjoy a comprehensive benefits package, including: Profit Sharing/401(k) + matching program; major medical, dental and vision coverage, along with Life/AD&D and Long-Term Disability coverage. RPA even offers pet insurance! To allow our Associates to relax and rejuvenate, we offer generous vacation, personal and sick time off as well as 14 paid holidays per year, (which includes closing down for at least a week at the end of each year).


RPA is headquartered in Santa Monica's Media/Entertainment district, less than 10 minutes from Santa Monica's sun-drenched coastline, the famed Santa Monica Pier, and popular Third Street Promenade's shopping, movies and array of trendy restaurants. Our campus-like complex is situated in an expansive path-filled park setting, including a convenient full-service gym, dry cleaners, credit union, coffee and gift shops, and food court—just steps outside our front door.

RPA also has seven field-office locations — in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Moorestown (near Philadelphia) and Portland — each dedicated to servicing our clients located in those areas, and negotiating local media for their respective regions.

Community Involvement

RPA is actively involved with thinkLA, the nonprofit industry association driven to pushing the Los Angeles marketing, media and advertising community forward. This includes sponsoring industry community events like a Multicultural Internship Program through MAT, Career Day, Advertising Softball League, Ad U and Ad U Grad, and AdJam (RPA's winning rock band is a repeated finalist at this popular House of Blues event!).
