If you think that you’ve got the right stuff for the position, get in touch.

We are looking to make a quick decision, so if you’re interested, get to typing. The response time will be fairly quick for a job application process. We may or may not get to see all applicants, but we will let you know when we make our decision. 

Send over your resumé / portfolio / work history to info@uzu-media.com. No calls or stop-bys… we’re busy, remember?!

Creativity goes a long way, of course, but don’t skip out on the substance, k? – we like a good laugh, and that’ll help to fit in here, but we also need to see the skills. This is a full-time position that requires onsite work with our team. If you don’t live in Colorado Springs, but you plan on moving here soon, let us know.
