Travel helps make the world a better place to work, live, and play.
Travel opens people’s eyes to new places and cultures, which in turn makes them more open and accepting of differences. Madden focuses exclusively on travel and tourism marketing because we believe in the impact of connecting people to new places and experiences.
We know first-hand that every dollar from family vacations, weddings, group visits, and business meetings impacts local businesses and residents by creating jobs, supporting infrastructure, and elevating communities as a whole.
Our work starts at home
Madden’s family owned and operated business was established in Tucson, Arizona in 1982—producing and publishing local visitors guides. Four decades later, we’re an awarding-winning, full-service destination marketing agency with clients across the country. We’re always looking to add to our nationwide team of remote experts with talented, creative, experienced, and forward-thinking people.
We do better together
An equal opportunity employer, Madden is committed to creating a collaborative ecosystem in which all employees have an opportunity to participate in and contribute to the success of the business, and are valued for their skills, experience, and unique perspectives. With half of our leadership positions filled by women, we’re off to a good start but we know we can do better: bit.ly/MediaAllyship
People come first
We take pride in cultivating a supportive and engaging company culture with diverse talent recruitment, a casual dress code, topical book clubs, and continued education through webinars and conferences with industry leaders.
We believe that travel is for everyone and we encourage our team members to create memories and stories of their own by providing generous benefits.
With 7 paid holidays, Responsible PTO available from your first day of employment, and Madden on the Move travel incentive, we encourage all employees to get the time off that they need to balance work, travel, and their personal lives.

“Madden is one of the best companies I have ever worked for, hands down. My coworkers are fun, supportive and so creative, and the leadership team is transparent, approachable and inclusive. The cherry on top—I get to work with exciting clients.”
“I love that Madden has the experience and thought leadership that you would expect from a 40-year-old agency but the grit and passion you get with a start-up. Expect the unexpected because that's the way you make a difference.”
Destination Strategy Director
“From day one, it's been clear to me that Madden knows the value of its employees. I've enjoyed mentoring, great work-life balance, a variety of interesting technical challenges, and - most importantly — a strong emphasis placed on a fun, inclusive, mutually-supportive team culture.”
Chief Linguist & Web Developer
“Personally, nothing makes me happier than bringing someone to my hometown and having them fall in love with it. Getting to work with clients who have that same passion for where they live, and the communities they serve...it doesn't get much better than that! There are so many great stories out there, I'm so lucky to be able to tell a few of them.”
“I enjoy challenging destinations to figure out what makes them great and what they do better than anyone else around them. I run the media that pushes that story out to people dying for a reason to travel. Not everyone gets to sell fun, and travel is a product people love.”
“Madden is by far one of the best companies I’ve ever worked for. Work-life balance is key here, and it’s a pleasure to work for a company that encourages us to take vacations and fully unplug. I’m proud to say that my team and the company as a whole are filled with talented (and unapologetically nerdy) individuals who are passionate about what they do.”
