Work Location

Our office is located in Chapel Hill, NC, in a fun co-working space. (We have several dedicated offices within.) While we are working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, we anticipate it being over one day, and will return to working in person when that time comes. While our schedules and locations can be flexible with work-from-home days, this is not a remote position — so you must be able to work on location in Chapel Hill most of the time. 

Benefits & Culture

THE rAVe Agency offers 100% paid employee healthcare from Blue Cross Blue Shield, a 401(K) program, unlimited paid time off (plus, half days every Friday) and a free gym membership to the UNC Wellness Center. You can wear whatever you want to work most days, and we have fun employee outings like lunches and nights out to see the Durham Bulls or a show at DPAC. We trust employees to get work done without constant supervision, and output/results are more important than anything else.
