We're open to hiring all kinds of people, from geeks in t-shirts to fashionistas in Louboutins. What matters most is that you rock at what you do, you’re a huge fan and evangelist of the whole “creative living” concept and you do your work with a smile.

Interesting Intern (Full Time or Part Time)

If you understand at least half of what the above says and it excites you, please apply.



Salary is based on your level of awesome. We are open to remote positions if you are even more awesome than the requirements listed above. But ideally, you’d spend your days coming into our creative studio (or in lay mans terms, our “office”) in San Francisco during the time that most people describe as “normal business hours” (engineers, you can be 1-2 hours late... I get it, Call of Duty at 2am sometimes makes for a rough morning).

If you are interested, please send us your resume.

High fives if you:
- Come up with a non-traditional resume.
- Include pictures or video (Of what? We don’t really care. We just like media.)
- Tell a story about the coolest thing you ever made or the coolest product you’ve ever used.
- Explain E = mc^2
