INTERESTED IN JOINING OUR TRIBE?

WHAT’S IT TAKE TO FIT IN?

Well, we’re a start-up – so you’ve got to be quick-witted, fast, and capable of wearing many hats. No job is too big or too small for your wise mind or your thrifty hands.

The ability to work autonomously and with your fellow tribe members is a must. You should come to the table as an independent thinker, capable of sharing your brilliant ideas and eager to listen to the ideas of others, but you should leave the table as an efficient do-er, able to take any assignment that’s thrown your way and execute it efficiently and with enthusiasm. Being organized helps. And even though our roles get mixed all the time, bonus points for always owning your role.

You should be an avid learner, continually seeking to improve your skills and learn industry trends. We’re a progressive agency, and that means knowing what’s coming next is important. We want the best and the brightest and we aren’t shy about it. Most of all – we want people who are in love with learning new skills and exceptionally talented at what they do.
