WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS WOULD I BE WORKING ON?
Our client base ranges anywhere between mom-and-pop shops to Fortune 500 companies.

WHAT IS THE OFFICE CULTURE LIKE?
Each SlideGenius office has its own fun and unique culture, developed by the diverse teams of designers and managers that work there. At the root of each office environment lies the foundational culture that was grown at our headquarters here in San Diego. Everyone has their own space to work without feeling boxed in and we keep an open channel of communication throughout the day. You are free to make your workspace feel like home and we encourage participation and interaction with everyone in the office. The relationships the teams build in-office extend outside of regular work hours and frequently include happy hour meet-ups and team celebrations after a big project! On top of that, we are in a newly constructed office space with scooters, a stocked fridge and pantry, catered lunches, birthday celebrations, and yoga balls for those focusing on core strength.
AM I GOING TO BE ABLE TO GROW WITH THIS COMPANY?
We take great pride in cultivating growth for our designers. We offer a structured and transparent path for each member of the team. You will know where you stand at all times and your manager will highlight exactly what needs to be done in order for you to get to the place you want to be. In addition to offering growth within a given department, we also allow for inter-departmental growth if you show an aptitude in another area. And the growth doesn’t stop there, as the company itself is growing at an amazing rate, providing new and exciting opportunities for our team every day!
OKAY, SO… WHAT’S THE CATCH?
The catch is that you have to bring your ‘A’ game. We expect our designers to bring positive, creative energy into the office everyday. That way we can face any challenge that gets thrown our way, knowing that we will be able to lean on each other for support.
