We've got a tale
We’re perennial makers.
Moxie Interactive was founded in April 2000 (and headquartered in someone’s home, like all great entrepreneurial beginnings).
We strive to grow multicultural talent both inside and outside of Moxie. Why? To better serve our diverse audience and help close the talent gap in our industry.
Our digital heritage and familiarity with change positions us on the edge of our industry, where the ability to adapt and mastery of technology and data are vital.
The #MoxieMaker mentality is driven by change and constant growth. It lives and breathes in our people who make and break with curiosity, purpose and moxie.
We dropped “interactive” and shortened our name to reflect our expanding range of capabilities, from creative to strategy and media to technology.
Joining the ZenithOptimedia group (and by proxy Publicis Groupe) gave us the resources of global media giants, and the ability to expand from one office location to four.
The stuff that makes us Moxie.
It's what compels us to explore uncharted territory.
It's what drives us to make and break ideas, methods, products and strategies.
It's what enables us to have brave conversations that push us beyond convention.
Individual experience. Collective results.
