Kickstart is located in the Railtown neighbourhood of Vancouver. We work near designers, artists, the beloved Railtown Cafe, plus an assortment of Food Trucks. Crab Park is just a few steps away, not to mention lots of great happy hour spots. Speaking of happy hour - we have our very own Tiki Bar at the studio which is a popular destination on Fridays after work.
We like to have fun as a team, so we always have a variety of social events on the go. We value knowing the professional goals of our employees and help to reach them by offering workshops, online training and supporting the personal creative endeavours of our teammates.
If you feel like you’d be a good fit, email your CV and Portfolio/Reel to our community manager Vanessa, at email@example.com
