Why work here?
We're an award winning, dynamic and growing agency built on strong values. We focus on collaboration, creativity and the customer experience. We are committed to cultivating an inclusive team and want to expand our hiring of the non-binary, BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities. So however you identify and whatever your background is, if you share our values, we want to hear from you!

We're working remotely for the time being (hanging out on Slack, and Discord when feeling fancy), and are likely to adopt some hybrid model once the pandemic is over. If we do return to an office, we promise it'll be a sweet spot with a stocked fridge and fresh decor. In person or at home, we're an environment that fosters creativity.

Pointer offers a flexible time off policy, with paid vacation & sick days. We have a comprehensive group benefit plan, that can include extended health and dental coverage. Oh and we've got great swag to deck you out from head to ankle.

If you are a creative thinker, a resourceful problem solver, and never one to shy away from a challenge, then we want to hear from you!
