Welcome to the Digicontenthub Team!
Welcome to our team! Here at Digicontenthub, our tribe is our vibe. Our mission? That you never feel like you’re working a day in your life. When Travis, Justin, and I started this company, we had two goals: to create some of the best content in the world and to create a family of the brightest young minds in the industry.
Which means you are a rock star. Out of thousands of candidates, we picked you, for your strengths and talents. You now have a job that people are literally willing to kill for—doesn’t that feel great? And the moment you walk through the doors of our co-working space/chill-lab, your new life begins.
You may notice that we never say “office”—that’s because we want you to feel at home. I mean, what is home? It’s where your family is, and, as I mentioned, we are your family now. I don’t know how you were raised, but, in our family, we share a “work hard, play hard” mentality. We respect that you’re putting in eighty hours a week, so we’re going to make sure that you never want to leave. You may have heard rumors about our turnover rate. And, between you and me, the rate is zero. It’s sort of a “Hotel California” situation. Who doesn’t love classic rock, right?
When we started this company, in Justin’s mom’s garage, with nothing but a dream and seven million dollars in seed money from Travis’s stepdad, we envisioned a space that not only strayed from tradition but curb-stomped it in an alleyway. Our aim was to build a place where you’d feel comfortable grabbing a beer or two with your bosses after landing a huge project. A place where, when the rare problem arose, you wouldn’t be told to “go to H.R.” or “file a complaint through the appropriate channels.” We’re not your dad’s digital-media-and-publishing-of-branded-content agency. We do things our way.
For example, we have an open-door policy—we encourage you to have one-on-one time with each of us, whenever you feel you need it. Just make sure to get in touch with Kendra using the OpenDoor app before contacting us directly; she’ll get you an appointment A.S.A.P.
If you’re used to more traditional and, let’s face it, boring workplaces, the change in vibe might be surprising at first. Ping-Pong and a classic Nintendo system? A fully stocked bar with Travis’s special home brew? Adderall in our first-aid kits? Crazy, we know—but we want members of our squad to feel like they can jam out when they need to unwind.
Bottom line, we want you to look forward to hanging and collabing. That’s why you won’t find yourself trudging to a cubicle where you don’t make eye contact with anyone all day. Our open-plan layout means that you’ll be sitting side by side with your colleagues, family style. And our family doesn’t keep secrets, so don’t be surprised if you find the company’s founders occasionally checking your private Slack D.M.s or e-mails. We just want to make sure that we know what you’re thinking before you do!
Of course, don’t feel like you have to be chained to a desk. Throughout the office, you’ll find work pods, if you need some privacy. And we know the realities of life as a millennial—it’s hard to find an affordable place to live close to our offices. Some of your new family members have to commute hours each day in traffic! So feel free to just curl up and catch some Zs in those pods, after you find yourself finishing a pitch deck at 11 P.M.
Unlike traditional companies, we’re proud of our youthfulness, which is why we see it as an asset that nobody on our team is over the age of thirty-five. Sucks that you weren’t here when Naomi turned thirty-six and was phased out; the send-off was unreal—she looked so peaceful. But, to be clear, we hire based on merit, meaning that age, race, and gender are not factors when we’re picking people to join our family, which just so happens to be pretty, white, and male. If you’re a new female hire, we salute you! Lean in, girl boss! (None of your actual bosses will be women, but it’s nice to joke around.)
We’re sure that your time at Digicontenthub will be dope, and we look forward to jamming out, picking your brain, and eventually giving you the peaceful send-off you deserve, surrounded by your loved ones.
