We want interns to feel like solid members of the team who are making real contributions to Localist. We're looking for students interested in all deparments at Localist, from Sales to Web Development. Have a passion in these areas?
We're in the heart of Silver Spring, Maryland, one block off the Silver Spring metro station. Our office looks over downtown Silver Spring, and across at the Discovery Communications headquarters. It's a beautiful view.
Our usual lunch haunts include SweetGreen, Panera, Subway and others. All are a few minute walk away. Other, more "planned lunch" places include Pete's New Haven Apizza and Mi Rancho. We go to these if we're getting tired of Panera (if that's even possible).
Need coffee? There's a Starbucks one block away! Going to a get-together after work? Lots of happy hours are happening nearby.
We want to make sure you're focused on making Localist better, not worrying about your rent.
We contribute 100% to health, dental and vision coverage via one of the best healthcare packages out there. Preview your benefits.
Everyone on the team is expected to be naturally motivated to do good work. An important piece of being productive is taking time off; we don't want to limit its importance.
We have a pre-tax 401(k) plan with generous company matching.
We offer the ability to contribute pre-tax to an HSA account.
Localist offers a pre-tax deduction option for commuter spending.
Life, as they say, happens. We're here to support you when times get tough.
Take a course on sites like Khan Academy, Udacity, or Coursera and we'll reimburse you on completion. If you're looking to expand your knowledge of your field, or learn more about other areas of our business, we will reimburse you for any books you buy (Kindle included).
We're 100% Apple, which means stuff "just works." We leverage cloud services whenever we can, so information is accessible wherever you are.
We measure overall team success by how much everyone learns and grows in their respective positions. Seminars, conferences and industry events help expand knowledge, and we want you there.
If you need to relieve your nanny at 4:30 every day, or you need to drop your kids off at school, we'll work with you to find a schedule that makes sense.
We feel that a job that is rewarding is more fulfilling than one that is just fun. But what if it could be both?
We stock Coke products, including Powerade and Evian water. Have as much as your heart desires.
We have a subscription to NatureBox and AmazonPantry, getting a huge monthly assortment of healthy goodie bags for everyone to enjoy.
Activities like go karting, city scavenger hunts, extravagant dinners and laser tag. Sharing some fun together helps keep lines of communication open.
Every month, we all gather to share something that we each did last month that made us proud, personally or professionally.
Our space in Silver Spring was built from the ground-up to encourage collaboration, but with opportunity for introspection. See a tour.
We have a central team calendar (powered by Localist, natch) that highlights all the cool things coming up.
Most companies use nice-sounding words to define their values. Things like "transparency," "authenticity" and "selflessness." In practice, these words are just that: words.
We attach individual actions to these words to demonstrate these values, not just say them. Everyone, including the CEO, is judged by their demonstrated values. We use them as a guideline for rewarding, promoting, or letting go.
We strike a balance between freedom and responsibility, looking at things in context, without trying to control the process.
We want every person at Localist to be someone you respect; someone you can learn from. That's what makes a great workplace.
While we don't discourage happy hours, we also don't encourage them, as we want to respect the people that have families, and not dedicate team time strictly to after-hours-booze-fests. That said, if you and your colleagues want to hit the bar after work, don't be surprised if the CEO joins!
We try to make every position intellectually fulfilling, fostering a sense of growth; we don't believe "work hard, play hard" is a culture.
We want to make every public event discoverable online, ultimately helping people connect to their communities. We will do this by building the best event management products in the world, striking a balance between the audience and the administrator.
Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to your resumé, write about who you are, what position you're interested in, and why you're interested in it. Most importantly, we'd love to hear what interests you in Localist.
