Jobs FAQ

 

I’ve written a brilliant cover letter, but whom should I address it to?

There’s a good chance multiple people will see your application, so addressing your cover letter “To whom it may concern” is fine with us.

 

How should I apply to work at Daake?

Take a look at our current listings and apply directly for the position you’re interested in. If you’re a design applicant, including a PDF or URL of your portfolio makes it a lot easier for our team to view and share your work.

 

What does your recruiting process look like?

We’re always on the lookout for great talent, and make a conscious effort to manage job listings and read incoming applications. If your work and personality seem to fit our team, you’ll make it to our interview process. This often includes multiple interviews with a variety of Daake peeps, and you should be ready to share examples of your work and passion areas to help us really get a sense of who you are.

Does cultural alignment play into your hiring process?

We fully accept the fact that we’re not a “one size fits all” culture. We carefully consider how people align with our three core values, which are outlined in The Field Guide to Life at Daake. We also get excited about people with diverse perspectives and backgrounds because they help us think differently and expand our understanding of the world. Your cover letter is the perfect place to express how you fit our culture and how you can bring value to our clients.

 

How do I avoid blending in with other applicants?

We’re pretty good at seeing through meaningless wit or gimmicks so you’re best bet is using your work to get our attention. To keep our attention, be intentional with your cover letter. The worst thing you can do is try to guess what we want to hear. If you try to fake it, you’ll never make it here.

I still have questions. Is it possible to speak with someone at Daake?
