Join our team

At Mekanic, our philosophy of co-creation applies between team members as well as in our client partnerships. We all bring unique gifts to the table and enjoy an enviable degree of latitude – while also collaborating daily to unravel a branding project and uncover the right answers.

Working at Mekanic is like being a member of a special ops team. We thoroughly assess environments, observe and listen well, investigate tactfully, map possibilities, and humbly innovate our way to the best solutions. We unlock puzzles together, as a family, and with the best interest of our client partners in mind. And we are addicted to each new brand challenge that surfaces.

 

The work that we do is super important as we contribute to the livelihood of businesses, associations and their staff teams. Given this impact, we develop our own team with precision and care – engaging multi-faceted brand professionals who believe in a mission larger than themselves and their position. At Mekanic, we welcome crazy talent and bold voices – but we check our egos at the door to collaborate effectively, create efficiently and establish camaraderie. It’s not uncommon for our team members to begin with a tour-of-duty, participating part time on projects to feel out the fit and flow. Check below for positions we need to fill as we grow the Mekanic crew this year. If you are on board with our own brand’s purpose and promise, we can’t wait to hear from you.
