About the Hours, Location and Culture

We anticipate that this is a 30-40 hours per week position. We want to work with a strong candidate to determine what number of hours works best for their situation.

Especially in the midst of the COVID pandemic, this position allows for remote work, and the majority of meetings with clients and our team are happening via Zoom as of the first half of 2021.

The position is located in Indianapolis. In a post-COVID situation, some travel might be required for client meetings, with a couple overnight trips taken each year. Trips usually include great food and a fun detour. 

Our team culture enjoys a flexible work environment and encourages everyone to create a daily rhythm that helps them do great work. You’re a person first, employee second. Work diligently, but make space for valuable time with family, friends, your church and community. 

Coming out of the COVID pandemic, we have office days (2-3 days/week) where everyone is in the office - this includes important face-to-face time and impromptu conversations about life and our work. Most of our team typically works from home or coffee shops the other days of the week. 

Snacks (a.k.a. "bonus food") is an unofficial core value. We work hard and love some buffoonery. Our office suite is located within a collaborative coworking community made up of people and organizations that are committed to making positive, life-changing impact.

We offer professional salaries and paid time off is provided. You’ll also receive a monthly cell phone stipend and other benefits.
