Are you a startup?
For each of the last three years we've (roughly) doubled our revenue, but we have not raised capital and don't intend to. By definition we are not a startup. We know this is a deal-breaker for some folks (and a great benefit to others!) so we want to be upfront about it.
Is Job Portraits an agency?
Yes and no. We solve particular problems, and we choose clients because their problems are the ones we can solve. This contrasts with most agencies, who focus instead on applying their skills. The real question here (in our experience), is whether we get bossed around by clients. To this point we'll note that the content we create reflects our clients' cultures; we can't get the work done without close collaboration and a heaping dose of trust.
Are the hours flexible and/or can I work remotely?
Yes and yes! We're a remote-first team. About half of us live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Other team members live in Oregon, Florida, Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. We all live by our calendars and trust each other to get our work done in a timely manner, but there aren't set hours here. Team members frequently take time off in the middle of the day and nobody bats an eye.
What will I personally do/make/create?
From our research with job candidates we know this question is top of mind for you...but we're reluctant to generalize. We'll say this: as a team, we spend about 30% of our time creating content (videos, blog posts, photographs, etc), 20% on consulting activities (conversations, deck creation, strategy documents), and 50% on everything else. Talk to us though—this really depends on the role you'll step into.
