Join our team!

Atlas Community Studios was founded in 2020 by a small, diverse group of creative problem-solvers and entrepreneurs looking for the opportunity to advance the economic prosperity of small and rural communities across the country. With decades of combined experience spanning both the public and private sectors, the Atlas team specializes in strategic planning, economic development, and creative placemaking.

Our hiring philosophy

Have you ever found a company you love and a job you know you would rock only to find out it has super strict arbitrary application requirements? Oftentimes, things like the number of years of experience serve no indication of one’s ability to actually do the job. Not to mention traditional hiring practices can unintentionally perpetuate discrimination and implicit biases even with the best of intentions. 

For all of the above reasons and more, our hiring process, like us, is nontraditional. We welcome all applicants, regardless of background and experience. We don’t want your resume or cover letter. We don’t care where you went to college, or even if you went to college. We don’t even want to know your name until the end of the process. 

We only want to know if you are motivated to help communities do big things, have the skills to make it happen, and will make a great teammate.
