Cultural Fit at [A]

What is [A]?

[A] is the Content Intelligence Service, and we work with clients to create a Content Intelligence System. The Content Intelligence System is a holistic set of people, processes, and tools that maximize content-ROI by ensuring content is coherent, self-aware, and quantum. By creating a Content Intelligence System, we increase the effectiveness and ROI of the content assets while reducing overall costs. [A] works holistically to build all aspects of a content intelligence system in partnership with clients and agencies. This includes not just the technology architecture and implementation, but enabling companies with the organizational muscles to drive content intelligence.

[A] Team Benefits

Being an [A]gent comes with its benefits. Work from anywhere. Use the newest mac hardware. Get a highly subsidized medical, dental, and vision plan. Earn a competitive salary and commissions, and get a generous 401(k) match. Advance your career on the leading-edge of the content and technology sciences. For longtime [A]gents, participate in a profit-sharing plan. This is all a great foundation but many [A]gents find the best part of working as an [A]gent are the other [A]gents you work with and the culture at [A].

We take care of each other and we honor each other's work and contributions to the team. We work to make ourselves better and our [A] team better. We make efforts to adapt new technologies and methodologies that can help us optimize our time, and we expect you to collaborate on these efforts if you’re an expert on any of those fields. We communicate and reach out to other [A] players. We love learning. We love teaching. We write. We code. We support each other. For the right people, working at [A] feels like coming home.

Desired salary*
Are you looking to work full-time or part-time? (If this application is associated with a full-time role, the role is full-time. However, sometimes we do have opportunity for part-time work, in addition to those roles.)*
Which best describes your location?*
What is your timeline for finding and transitioning to a new role? Please check all that apply.*
Are you able to travel? (Not all roles require travel.)*
We are a virtual company, but require our [A]gents to be available for meetings and collaboration between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm Central time. Does this work for you?*
Reading the description, why do you think you may be a good fit for this role?*
At [A] we have a deep commitment to diversity. It reflects in that [A]gents have a wide variety of ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, physical geographies, religious affiliations, sexual orientations, gender identities, political associations, physical abilities, and all manner of ways of thinking about the world, the universe, and our role in it.

However, there's a lot of ways in which we're the same. We're all learners and teachers, all committed to growth for ourselves, each other and [A] as a whole. Many of us are introverts at some level, and we're all comfortable working from home offices. All at [A] are smart people with good hearts, and better in our diversity.

If you join us at [A], do you agree to embrace our diversity statement?*
This role utilizes a paid traction project as the final step of the interview process.

[A] utilizes such test, or traction, projects to not only assess skills, but more importantly to assess if there is a mutual cultural fit. This also gives you insight into [A] “behind the scenes” and helps you determine if [A] is the right place for you. Traction projects are also an excellent time to onboard with [A] tools, and learn key concepts that may be new, to see if the systems and the content at [A] all fits your style.

[A] customizes each test project to the individual candidate as well as to client and internal needs at [A]. The work you will be doing on the test project will produce important and valuable deliverables and contains areas that may be involved in your [A] position. As mentioned, this is a paid project meant to be completed in your "free" time.

If you progress through our process, would you be willing to participate in a traction project?*
