More about you

We're looking for you to bring with you a Bachelor’s Degree, preferably in business, marketing or communications/PR. You should have great attention to detail and the ability to respond quickly and adapt to changing priorities. We’re looking for excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work well with others in a collaborative team environment. Being comfortable meeting deadlines while working on multiple projects simultaneously is the key to success in this role, along with excellent customer service skills. Prior work experience in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial team environment is a plus but not required.

More about our team

Everything we do on the marketing and communications team is driven by business impact, and every project has one owner who is empowered as the key decision maker. We determine success metrics up front and restlessly drive towards them. We strive for transparency and awareness in everything we do, but we are comfortable not knowing the details on everything. We embrace our “open company, no bullshit” value and have the grit to tell it like it is. We're good listeners, especially the voice of our customer. We move really fast. We take risks and fail (which is OK!). We take away key lessons to ensure we don't repeat the same mistakes again. We play as a team. We promise you'll never be bored.
