About Us

At Rain the Growth Agency, we believe that all brand behaviors are important, and the way a brand sells is key to how it’s perceived. That’s why we created Transactional Brand Building, a unique approach that delivers on brand and sales objectives at the same time—with the same work.

Michelle Cardinal and Tim O’Leary have always challenged conventional wisdom. When they founded the agency in 1998, no one believed direct response and brand advertising should be in the same room—let alone the same agency. Now our clients wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our Culture

Our entire agency is fully committed to these core values.


Be Courageous

We innovate. Participate. We’re not afraid to deviate and we empower others to do the same. They zig? We zag. We have courage. To speak. To act. To try. To be. We’re brave. Because being brave is easy when everyone has your back.


Value Relationships

We care about the people we work with and the relationships we build. We’re honest, open and receptive to one another. We have mutual respect, from clients to colleagues to vendors. Then we play hard together. ‘Cause having fun at work isn’t a nice-to-have, it’s a must have. And yes, participation counts.


Commit to Excellence

We do whatever it takes, for however long it takes (even when it’s hard). We deliver above and beyond for clients, for investors and, most importantly, for ourselves. And we deliver when others say it can’t be done. We keep learning. Keep teaching. Keep improving. And we raise the bar higher than the moon.


Have A Winning Spirit

We beat the control. Beat the competition. We push ourselves to be the best. We motivate our troops and move in for the win. Because we know that with great competition comes outstanding performance.

We Care

Our team is dedicated to caring for each other and for the community. We give our employees the opportunity to complete individual and team-centric fitness goals and wellness programs, in addition to our complete menu of health insurance benefits. We also care for our community by volunteering together to various organizations each year. Recent volunteer and fundraiser events have included:

Central City Concern's Family Housing Program
West Chester Food Bank
Gaits of Harmony
Oregon Food Bank
St. Anthony Foundation


Employees enjoy a full suite of health insurance benefits (medical, dental, and vision), employer matched 401K, life insurance, subsidized parking, four weeks of paid time off (to start) plus national holidays off, and competitive market-based compensation.
