What to expect working at Weekday Studio:

We are a small, excited team who loves coming to work everyday on a slow paced island. We are passionate about good design and believe to our core that it makes life better. We do good work for great clients. We love Hawaii. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We believe work is an important part of life, but it’s not our entire life. We work hard, and then go surf/eat/drink/netflix. We are not your family, your family is your family and we want you to have a healthy happy one. We’re co-workers, which we think is pretty great. We enjoy helping each other out and working together.  We are highly integral, honest, fair, kind, and happy people.

Perks:

  • We’re small, which means we’re all hands on deck. The cool thing about that is there’s opportunities for you to work on any aspect you may want on a project. Love photography or styling? Set up some still life’s in our photo studio. Always wanted to design an environment? Contribute and learn on our next branded environment.
  • We live in Hawaii. Nuff said. 
  • We’re growing, which means there is opportunity to grow with us.  

Before applying: 

Are you a complainer, love causing drama, dishonest, egotistical, hate listening, enjoy the big city, looking for a corporate setting, harbor grudges, lack initiative, passive aggressive, tend to blame others for everything wrong, or are rolling your eyes at this list? Don’t apply.

Take a look at our work - does your work align with our style? Can you push us farther? In what ways can you see us improving? 
If you don’t live in Hawaii, why would you want to and could you see yourself living here long term? 

This is a 180-day contract-to-hire position with full intent to hire. Why so long? This is because some people are great in interviews, others are terrible. Either way, that’s not the skill we’re looking for. Also, Hawaii is (possibly) far from where you currently live and that’s a big move. It will take both of us time to see how we work together and if it’s a good fit.
