What makes us a successful, unique and multi-faceted local media company? We are driven by our beliefs and the results of our actions are to the benefit of our communities. We believe we inspire, collaborate and earn leadership:

Inspire: We actively engage in a culture that is energizing, motivating and inspiring to our employees, the people that live in our communities and local commerce we help grow. This fosters and supports our regional ecosystem in Iowa’s Creative Corridor where we make new things happen.

Want to Work Together?

The Gazette Company has a long, rich history as Eastern Iowa’s largest media company, and we are irrevocably connected to the diverse and vibrant communities we serve. Starting over 130 years ago as a local newspaper, we have evolved and adopted every new communications medium invented – from newspapers to radio to television to the web. That tradition continues with Fusionfarm, a digital marketing and creative agency and Color Web Printers, our full service commercial printing division with state of the art digital capabilities. We look for bright, enthusiastic and caring individuals to join our company and co-create our future.

We are an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) company and we genuinely care about the health and happiness of our employees. Our benefits reflect our commitment, covering health, dental and vision insurance, offering employee stock ownership, and ample time off for rest and relaxation — even for part-timers. We find time to play at work, too, with picnics, fitness contests, chair massages and more.

As a community partner, we believe in giving back. We encourage our employees to get involved with community organizations and to give of their time and talent.
