GRAYBOX is home to the best in the industry. We’re a ragtag pack of elite-level digital experts that operate with empathy, professionalism and precision.
We’re seeking the Caring, the Unique and the Wise
We're always accepting resumes, and we are frequently hiring. We generally hire free-spirited, independent candidates with a background in entrepreneurship or have demonstrated success in a fast-paced, get-it-done sort of world. We've set a high bar for all employees and demand effective results for our clients. Although tech is very male-centric, we have a multicultural team of many diverse backgrounds.
We believe that everything good about GRAYBOX comes from our amazing team. Without this crew, we would fail spectacularly. As such, we take hiring very seriously and expect a lot from each of our teammates.
First, everyone is passionate – employees have a fire in their gut that propels them to be their best and do their best. You have to care about this company, our clients and their projects – and have the confidence that you can accomplish what needs doing. We can and will teach your skills, but we can’t teach you to give a damn.
Second, everyone is at the top of their craft, whatever that might be. We have a seriously diverse range of services we offer and generally only have a few people that know any one thing. You’re to be a clutch. You might have been doing design for 15 years, or you might be on the forefront of a new technology, but either way, we need your expertise. Beyond what you know today, you MUST be intellectually curious to always strive to learn new things and further hone your craft.
Third, everyone is a teacher and advisor first and foremost. We don’t care if your last job said “engineer”, ” developer” or “marketer” — at GRAYBOX you’re a consultant first. You advise other businesses on what is going to be most effective for their business and their individual strategy. Yes most of the day, you’ll be creating things respective to your craft, but at the core, we’re solving problems effectively for our client partners.
Fourth, everyone is a great communicator. We collaborate often, speak directly, and hash things out. If something is wrong, we call it out so it can be fixed. We move seamlessly between writing, calls, Slack and in-person meetings to deepen our understanding and build better products.
Finally, everyone is independent — we are confident, self-directed and totally dependable. Our most successful employees don’t need much oversight, are eager to jump in, and have a good time dealing with whatever the new problem of the day is. You’ll never be bored here, as their is literally something new almost every day. Don’t be afraid, get in there and fix it.
