$20-30/hour based on experience with performance-based bonuses, health insurance, dental insurance, paid time off for all major US holidays, and 1 week of paid time off.

We have a great culture – people love working here because of the flexibility in schedule, laid back environment, business casual (yet professional) dress code, supportive team members, and our fantastic monthly team outings and events. Additionally, we really encourage our team members to find where they are passionate and grow their skills with the company. We try to promote from within whenever we are able.

We are working remotely during the pandemic. But, when we get the official word that it’s safe, we will be returning to the office. That is why it is imperative that the person we hire be Denver-based. This is a very collaborative position, and we need someone who is physically present. Our office is located in a vibrant, collaborative, coworking building filled with other creative and technology professionals. This space is open, yet surprisingly quiet. We don’t do cubicles or stuffy corporate offices– rather, our team meets together with our laptops and shares conference tables. The building is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The facility offers bike racks, showers, outdoor patio, kitchen, snacks, and monthly events to meet and network with other professionals.

Tree Ring Digital is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
