WHAT YOU HAVE:

WHERE IT ALL GOES DOWN:
This is a remote role that can be worked at from a home office space

WHEN THE MAGIC HAPPENS:
This is a Consultant role on a per script basis

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US:
We've kept our hiring bar really high - you will work with the best
Our content is growing quickly, so you'll get the opportunity to take on a lot of responsibility and grow a ton personally!

WHEN WE’LL TALK ABOUT HOW AWESOME YOU ARE:
No formal cover letters, please. Instead include a few short paragraphs in your application explaining why you’d be a good fit for this particular position.
Provide links to projects you’ve worked on
Attach a resume

AN IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE APPLYING TO US:
All of Dhar Mann Studios' new hires will begin at the associate level, regardless of what position was applied for. This approach doesn’t affect any aspect of pay: you will still get compensated during your Discovery Period according to the position you are applying for and within the rate listed for this position. Our organization looks to hire the BEST of the best and we focus on finding candidates who are a strong cultural fit. We have a 3 month 'Discovery Period' in place that allows us to get to know each new hire better and assess their skill set. Management-level roles will be part of a different Discovery Period for each step of the ladder (but again this does not affect your pay or compensation package).
