Company Description

As part of Publicis Groupe, CJ Affiliate is the leader in Global Affiliate Marketing.

Here’s what we believe in at CJ:

Ownership – We’re determined to make an impact – a big one – every day.

This culture has driven our tremendous growth. Every day we work with more than 400 blue chip companies in providing powerful marketing solutions that drive stronger results than ANY competitor! It takes superstars to work here, and if that’s what you are, there’s no better place to make your mark!
