Please read this ad thoroughly and know 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 are proud to be a unique and inclusive team. Our workspaces are open, and we encourage our teams to find their flow by sitting, standing, stretching and moving around. Our “open door” policy is more of a “no door” policy; we like to talk to each other, share ideas, and collaborate. We invite all team members to simply, “come as you are” and we truly mean it. During this time of social distancing, the majority of the team is working remotely from home for everyone's safety. Despite the distance, we have still been able to continue to work as a connected and cohesive team.
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.
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 stronger and better company. Do you have something unique to offer us?
