Work With Us

Welcome, and thank you for your interest

  • Hi, I’m Loren Polster, a graphic designer and front-end web developer of 13 years in the process of building a little virtual agency, bound for glory.
  • We’re looking for problem-solvers, with initiative, integrity and talent.
  • We specialize in ongoing service contracts for medium-sized SaaS companies. We offer them fast-turnarounds and a range of design and web development services. This means there’s corporate design work, but we always aim to bring a unique and upgraded excellence to that space, and to everything we do.
  • If you’re interested in building something, in having your ideas be heard and in improving yourself and others, we’d love to chat.

We Can Offer

Consistent Income

  • Weekly contractors are paid in advance each week.
  • As-needed contractors are paid for their time every two weeks.

Adaptable schedules

  • While we mostly keep a 9-5 schedule, we accommodate flexibility and unpredictability.
  • You’re paid for the hours you work.

learn, grow & Build

  • Learn from my 13 years of experience as well as from your other team members.
  • This is the ground-floor. Help build this company and have your ideas be heard.
  • We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our business and ourselves.

Balance & Positivity

  • We deliver above and beyond for our clients, while also setting boundaries so we don’t burn out on unreasonable expectations.
  • I was a freelancer for over 13 years, so I treat my team how I want to be treated.
  • We’re just nice to each other 🙂

Important Details

AGREEMENTS

  • We strive for a culture based on excellence, integrity, efficiency and improvement, and want to be sure we hire people who are enthusiastic about living those ideals as well. 
  • Here are a list of agreements based on those values we ask you to make if you work with us. Please read them before applying.

HOURLY CONTRACT WORK

  • All positions are paid hourly, either in a weekly contract or on an as-needed basis.

Fully Remote

  • We were 100% remote before the pandemic, and plan to continue after it ends.

PROCESS

  1. Apply for a position below.
  2. We’ll review and let you know either way.
  3. If it looks good, we’ll interview.
  4. If that goes well, we’ll do some test projects.
  5. If those go well, we’ll approve you as a contractor and either:
    1. Offer you a weekly retainer: 15–40 hours / week.
    2. Assign you work on an as-needed basis, and pay you every two weeks.

PLEASE DO NOT

  • Reach out on other channels — Linkedin, email, booking a consultation, etc. This will not make you stand out, it just clutters my inboxes and will disqualify your application.
