Event & Marketing Coordinator


WORKING AT SPYSCAPE

Our mission is to inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things. We do this by creating entertaining, educational and empowering content and experiences. We use spy stories to see the world more clearly and spy skills to see ourselves more clearly.

We are seeking individuals who demonstrate initiative, an inquisitive mind, a creative vision, an obsession for making things better, a passion for solving puzzles, the humility to laugh at yourself, the willingness to ask for help when you’re in over your head (you will be), the ability to deal (healthily) with multiple projects and tight deadlines. We want people who can't help but wake up at 3 AM thinking about improving things.

Our culture is creative, fun, supportive, open without exception, and the focus is always on customers first.

We know that positive, genuine, good-hearted people make great co-workers, so that’s the type of person we hire. Bring us your creativity, personality, customer focus and enthusiasm for education and entertainment– we can’t wait to meet you!
