Big Monocle is an award-winning creative agency founded by Amy Stellhorn in 2012 in Silicon Valley and is now headquartered in Salt Lake City. We work with everyone from Fortune 50 titans to growing startups to for-good causes and companies, crafting experiences through brand and web design.
We are a small team of core employees that are 100% invested in a vision that work should be delightful, fulfilling, and full of ease. We are looking for someone to join that team and share in that vision.
Big Monocle’s Values:
- If it’s worth our time, it’s worth our insane attention —this is how we do hard and magical things.
- We don’t believe that multi-tasking or constant attention shifting is a good way to work. We are willing to pay the price to remove distractions and get into flow.
- This is pro ball, only stars allowed — this is how we work and interact as a team.
- We own our responsibilities, don’t need ourselves or our projects managed by others, take accountability for mistakes, and self-appreciate and celebrate our successes. We are both collaborative and independent.
- You can’t pour from an empty cup —this is how we are able to show up with peace, ease, and insane attention.
- We know we do our best work when we have full-cup energy— when we have energy, curiosity, and are able to flow. Everyone fills their cup differently, through rest, adventure, hobbies, etc., but however we do it, it’s a business imperative that we do it. To this end, we’re currently operating with a 4-day workweek model.
- We steer the ship — this is how we interact with our clients and empower ourselves as the experts we are.
- We go deep in understanding the destination, the end goal, or the desired outcome for every project we take on. From there, it’s up to each of us as individuals to use our expertise and experience to get there.
- The work isn’t work, it’s play —this is our guiding attitude towards the work.
- Work doesn’t have to always be hard. It doesn’t have to be a grind. It’s not always easy, but can almost always be done with more ease, more fun, more delight. We’re not afraid to ask ourselves, our team, our clients, “Is there a better way?”
After you apply, there will be a phone screening and interview. If we choose to move forward beyond that in the application process we will reach out to you and give you a paid work sample to do with us.
