Join the Team

We are looking for practical idealists who are driven to win the global PR battle for migrant communities across the globe. We value people who are optimistic, collaborative, who take ownership, embrace ambiguity, talk less do more, can learn from failure, and have the desire to make others successful.

  • Entrepreneurial: You maximize the resources around you to chart a path to the goal. You are a go-getter who knows how to push hard.
