How to Get Hired

We asked Firespring for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Firespring lives by three core values: 1) Bring it, every day. 2) Have each other’s back. 3) Give a shit. We’re also a Certified B Corp that believes in giving back to the communities we serve and call home. If a prospective team member has the skills to do the job, an altruistic spirit and a dedication to living by our values, they’ll fit in well at Firespring.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Firespring looks for people who are savvy communicators with a keen understanding of social marketing and technology. Those who value life-long learning and possess a strong desire to collaborate with others will get our attention.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

You could find more available professional clowns in Lincoln than web application engineers. So if you understand this string of letters: PHP, MySQL, HTML, XSS, XSRF, jQuery and love working in the Silicon Prairie, we have a keyboard waiting.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Stop by our careers section on the website and see if we can hook you up with an awesome gig.
