The Position
Do you have a knack for creating incisive and funny content? Do you ravenously read both news and pop culture? Do you find yourself lying awake at night with ideas for videos? Then we have a perfect role for you.

This is a unique opportunity to create content and be the voice of The Flex Company online and in our printed magazine. This role starts as an individual contributor and a successful leader will have a path toward building and growing their own team as we scale.
