Careers

Are you ready to build a better world, one pixel at a time?

PixelSpoke is an environment for the quick-witted, good-humored, analytical, creative spirits inside each of us — and we’re always looking for the next outstanding team member. If you can laugh at yourself, think on your feet, and have a passion for building creative solutions, PixelSpoke might be a good fit for you!

Why become a 'Spoker?

We have a lot of reasons for loving our workplace, but here are a few of the highlights:

We're a Worker-Owned Cooperative

That means we’re owned and run democratically by our employees. After their first three years, all employees have the option to buy a share and become part-owner of the company.

We're a B Corp

In our last assessment, we scored the maximum points possible in the areas of employee engagement, internal employee promotions, worker empowerment, and personal development, among other areas.

We Care

PixelSpoke cares about the world we live in and is committed to using business as a force for good. We don’t just have one bottom line — we have three. People, planet, and profit drive all of our business decisions.

I worked at PixelSpoke before I moved back to California in 2011. It was the warmest work environment I’ve been in, and the whole team is whip smart. Cameron is super smart but is also one of the most generous people I have met in the business world and he has a huge heart for the world and for giving back.

Our Culture & Values

PixelSpoke is strongly committed to our six core values: Everybody Wins, Solutions Not Blame, Improve Every Day, Enjoy the Journey, Curiosity with a Purpose, and Authenticity.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At PixelSpoke, we believe that we have a responsibility toward building an inclusive economy that creates opportunities for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We’re committed to equity, and we value a diverse workforce.

As part of this commitment, we seek team members whose diverse personal and professional background gives them a unique perspective to further PixelSpoke’s work with credit unions and other organizations that serve diverse member bases and marginalized communities. People of all types, including women, people of color, people with disabilities, people of different ages, veterans, and members of the LGBTQ community are strongly encouraged to apply.

You might notice that we our positions don’t require a college degree—that’s intentional. We’re also committed to providing individuals with criminal records, including formerly incarcerated individuals, a fair chance to participate in the American economy. We understand the importance of removing unnecessary barriers that may prevent these individuals from gaining access to employment, training, education and other basic tools required for success in life.

Interested in Joining the Team?

Though we’re not currently hiring, we’re always looking for A-Players. If you’re interested in joining the team, or working for us as a freelance strategist, copywriter, or designer, we would still be happy to hear from you.

Include your resume, a link to your LinkedIn profile, or a link to your online portfolio, as well as a note about which of our core values most resonates with you.
