Introduction:


In the last three years, Simple Pickup has grown from a small YouTube channel to a multi-million dollar business. Come help us take the next step.

We're building out all facets of our business right now -- from engineering to sales, from production to content. In addition to Simple Pickup, we own and operate a collective of channels specific to the young male demographic -- all of them are up and coming, and all of them have potential to dominate their respective verticals.

Up to this point, we've been able to create a sustainable business with a customer base that is overwhelmingly enthusiastic about the products we create. Our next step is to scale our business, and create tons more kick-ass content and products that will add real value to people's lives.

For our business to successfully expand, our team has to expand. This is where you come in. As an early-stage startup employee (or intern!), you'll have the amazing opportunity to shape the company culture and direction, and, in a few short years, run an entire team of your own.

If you're someone who can show passion in what you do, run on minimal sleep, and work impossibly fast, then we want you on the team.

Come grow with us.
