Where did the name CovalentCreative come from?

The term "Covalent" is a scientific term that is defined as "a chemical bond characterized by pairs of shared electrons," and is one of the strongest bonds formed in nature. CovalentCreative is here to create strong bonds between our clients and their audiences.

The Pros of the Covalent Team

Annual Team Trips

Our team works hard to create the best experience in the industry, and we like to set aside some time for everyone to reflect on the awesome things they've done.

Monthly Bonding Events

The team coming together and getting things done is an everyday occurrence, but we also like to get together when it really counts: beating each other at bowling or belting out karaoke.

Balboa Park Views

Bike, walk, skate, or scoot down to Balboa Park at lunch; walk a block to delicious eateries; enjoy the laid-back energy of working in Hillcrest.

Sweet Paid Time Off

After crushing it for days at a time, you have to give yourself a bit of a break. Whether you're a world traveler or you want to take a few days to lounge around at home, you'll have some well-earned vacation time.

Work From Home & Flex Days

You have guests at home? You need to take a sudden trip in the middle of the week and want to make up the hours later? You're welcome to work from the comfort of your home on Saturday or in the early hours of the morning so that you're caught up when you get back.

Insane Growth Opportunities

We are a career development company for healthcare professionals, but we're also invested in developing our own team! We are dedicated to making our A-players into A+ players. We want to see our entry-level employees become directors, and we'll help them get there.

Health Insurance

Grinding through and hitting goals can take its toll on everyone. In case you get sick and need a little back up, we're here to help.

Sick Time

For those days you wake up feeling not so great, we strongly encourage you to get some bed rest. Recuperate and come back stronger than ever!

Retirement Plan

We all want to be able to happily grow old and then rest up at our sweet vacation home. We know you have to start some time, so why not now?
