seeking intrepid owners

Spawn employee-owners are fearless. Our culture embraces change, so fearlessness is really more of a survival trait. Mind you, we also have a softer side. For example, we bring babies to work until they can crawl (as long as it’s, you know, your baby). And a playful side, including agency cocktails, Summer Fridays and fitness club memberships. 

But back to the fearless thing. You’ll find we’re as brave with our strategy, design, content, and client management as we are pumping endorphins while shredding on a mountain trail. If Spawn Ideas sounds like a place you’d like to be a part of, and have ownership in, take the leap and apply to one of our openings below.

Spawn Ideas is not your average creative internship. We’re not going to make you do a coffee run, though one of us may ask if you’d like to join us for a coastal run. Here, you’ll get real projects, not just busy work, and you’ll be working right alongside the rest of the creative team. You won’t be asked to organize supplies, instead you’ll be asked for design solutions, creative concepts and that big idea. We want you to leave this internship with a couple of pieces for your portfolio that make you proud. (That is, of course, if you ever leave. A good portion of our office started here as interns.)
