Here’s the question list you can answer any / all / none of in your cover letter if you feel inspired:

  • Tell us about yourself, why you want the job, and why Acro Media?
  • What would be your biggest challenge coming into the role?
  • Describe a time when you felt it was necessary to modify or change your actions in order to respond to the needs of another person?

Here are some things we pride ourselves on being able to offer our staff:

  • Free stuff: Juice, pop, and coffee; choose your pleasure and enjoy.
  • Slappies: Tougher to explain but once a month we get together and have a little ceremony, some food, a few brews - no altars or corporate chants involved.
  • Fun day: We aim to have fun every day; however, every year for a day we cram a bunch of fun on ourselves. Weee!
  • SPARC Events: Sometimes we have an in-house breakfast, team building events, (less corny than it sounds), competitions, or just a plain little reward for no reason. It’s a little spark in our usually normal days. Warning, we make you wear costumes. Often. 
  • Culture: We’re a certain type of people. We’re all a little different and unique in our own way but we seem to work well together. No one’s perfect and we embrace that. We take our work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Check out our site to get to know us! Feel free to dissect what and how we do what we do.
