Are you the first person in your circles to get the newest gadget? Do you have a hard time keeping a new product you love to yourself? If you’ve spent serious time in the pen aisle debating between medium or fine point, you’re our person. We’re looking for a product nerd, someone that loves being on the cutting edge, has an eye for good design and an appreciation for how product materials and style can influence consumer habits and the overall impact of a brand. You don’t need to know the difference between embossing and debossing (yet) but passion to learn is key. You will help lay the foundation upon which the company will continue its growth.
Big egos need not apply – we need a team player.
