Are you one in a Melon, too?

Careers with Melon Local are a pretty special gig. For that reason, we’re fairly picky about who we choose and vice versa. If you’re looking for a career that’s as fun as it is fulfilling, read on to find out why a job with Melon may be your next best move.

Melon Local is a great place to work for exactly four reasons:

  • Melons are not our business, insurance marketing is. We know insurance marketing better than anyone, which makes us (and, potentially, you) a subject matter expert.
  • We’re a laidback group with leaders who refuse to micromanage. We have our own jobs to do, and we trust that you’re here to do yours.
  • We’ll go ahead and say it: we’re an “essential” business. At least, the local insurance agents we serve are… so, there is always a need for the services we provide.
  • Lastly, we get results. Therefore, you’re almost always dealing with happy, satisfied clients. Not every company can make a claim like that.
