Boelter + Lincoln is a full-service advertising agency located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward. For over 40 years, B+L has helped clients build their brands with creative, result-oriented ideas. Unlike the typical client/agency relationship, many of these partnerships have turned into long-term friendships that get stronger each year. Why? Maybe it has something to do with our roll-up-your-sleeves Midwestern work ethic. We immerse ourselves in our clients’ business — listening, collaborating and innovating; finding solutions for problems. B+L’s staff tenure is almost twice the industry standard, which tells you a lot about some solid company culture. We believe strongly in a healthy work/life balance.

Culture is key and you can’t have a winning agency without a winning culture.

Passion for work
Heart to see projects to fruition
Desire to become a pivotal piece of B+L’s continued growth and success
Flexibility and humor
A good soul
