A little about us

We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we’re dead serious about delivering results. Data fuels everything that we do, but we aren’t robots—we’re humans with heart, dedicated to the successes of our clients and each other.

New Engen was born digital, with a laser focus on performance marketing success: how to achieve it, measure it, and repeat it. What we’ve developed is an agile system that we tailor to every brand we work with. From gift-heavy DTC brands like 1-800-Flowers® to entertainment platforms like BET+, we work across industries to achieve profitable growth and optimal ROI. We’re pretty good at it, too.

But the secret to our success is not the system itself—it’s the super-talented people who make that system hum. With experts in planning, creative, media, analytics and more, our collective and unified skills allow us to open doors we could not have found on our own. Our robust DEIB program helps ensure that every voice is heard, and we offer generous benefits (hello, unlimited PTO! 👀❤️) so every person can live their best life.

Our hard work keeps paying off

We've been recognized as one of the best places to work in America! 🥳

Our Values

Be the Good

We act with integrity, humility, and altruism inside and outside our company. We promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in every aspect of our business. We cultivate a safe workplace where everyone feels respected, engaged, and able to reach their full potential. Bottom line: We give a shit.

Expertise

We take pride in our work, holding ourselves to a high standard of executional excellence. We continually work to expand our skills and master our craft. Our approach sets precedent and reverberates throughout our always-changing industry, inspiring adaptation among brands, platforms, and agencies.

Growth Mindset

We bias towards action, starting with “what is possible?” instead of being stuck in scarcity. We embrace challenges and welcome feedback as opportunities to improve what we do and how we do it. We find joy in the process and are fueled by our curiosity to master complex problems. We aren’t afraid to take calculated risks or operate in ambiguity, recognizing that imperfection is a part of progress.

Emphathetic Directness

We give and receive feedback with courage, openness, and empathy—internally and externally, across departments, and at all levels. We do the right thing, even when it’s hard. We aim to understand (not judge) and teach (not take over). Our feedback is empirical and focuses on behaviors and outcomes.

All In

New Engen is our company. We believe in what we are building together and put the team first in order to accomplish our shared goals. We reject apathy and cynicism and do everything we can to help each other win. Being All In is not about the hours we log, nor does it mean that we agree on every decision. Rather, it is a mentality of common purpose that guides how we engage, reach consensus and show up for our clients and teammates.
