We are interested in what makes you uncommon. Hiring people with different voices, different experiences, and different perspectives has expanded our thinking, enriched our culture, and made us a better company. Do you have something unique to offer us? We’re looking for a Workplace Designer at our headquarters in Portland, Oregon. Please read this ad thoroughly and please know that we do not accept resumes without the accompaniment of a cover letter. We want to get to know you a bit, so help us out
A Little About Us:
We sell and design desks, chairs and things that keep your body moving, so you can work and live more fully. We’re proud to be a unique and diverse team; a quirky collection of creatives, nerds, yogis, dancers, foodies, climbers, cyclists, and movement fanatics. We expect all team members to “come as you are” and we truly mean it. We are people who don’t fit into boxes and don’t put up with cubicles. Our “open door” policy is more of a “no door” policy. We like to talk to each other, share ideas, and collaborate, preferably over kombucha, happy hour, or a waterfront stroll. We hire people we believe in and who are equally passionate about engaging in a progressive and active workplace. We are constantly moving, learning, and evolving both personally and professionally. Ultimately, we believe life is too short not to love where you work.
