Benefits & Culture

Go Fish Digital offers great health care benefits (with a significant portion paid by the company), a generous 401k program, and a flexible, balanced work schedule. We're employee-friendly, and include small but fun perks like free Netflix and Spotify subscriptions, a Kindle reader, a free eBook every quarter, a free run/race entry per year, and more. With our trusting and flexible work culture comes responsibility, so you'll need to be the type of worker who is disciplined enough to get things done without someone watching over your shoulder. We are looking for someone to bring great ideas to the table, and to work above and beyond our core hours of 8:00 to 4:00 each day when needed.

Instructions for Applying

For consideration, please write a custom two-paragraph cover letter and include your salary requirements. (The two paragraph suggestion is so you don't feel obligated to write something super long.) If the website you're using to apply doesn't allow you to attach a separate cover letter, combine it with your resume into a single document. This is extremely important, as you will not be considered without it. This ensures you can follow directions and have read all the way down to here. :)

We'll read your cover letter first, so really personalize it and let it showcase your personality and strengths. This should not be a stiff, boilerplate piece of writing. Be real, be yourself, and make us want to learn more about you. Stand out from the crowd! (Hint: We eliminate any applicant who doesn't follow these cover letter instructions).
