Working at Big Cabal Media
You’ll be joining a group of focused, hard-working, creative people who are passionate

about doing work that’s challenging and telling stories that matter.

 

We’re a digital company with a hybrid work set up. We use Slack, Google Docs, Notion and other tools to keep on top of things.

 

We typically try to arrange work between 9am and 6pm WAT, but we don’t have a stick up

our butt about hours. We care about quality and results. Our people get things done fast

and well, and we ask them to take care of themselves. Burnout isn’t fun or useful.

 

While collaborative work will be the norm and is the requirement, people who want to work

at BCM must also demonstrate initiative and the ability to work independently.
