Join our team

We welcome crazy talent and bold voices – but we check our egos at the door to collaborate effectively, create efficiently, and establish camaraderie.

At our D.C. area branding agency, we apply the same co-creation philosophy to ourselves as we do with our clients. We all bring unique skills to the table and enjoy an enviable degree of latitude – while also collaborating daily to deliver authentic value to our clients’ communities through strategy, brand positioning, storytelling, design, and experiences.

At Mekanic, we thoroughly assess and observe our clients’ environments, investigate areas of question and curiosity, and map possibilities to innovate our way to the best branding solutions humbly. We are addicted to each new brand challenge that surfaces, and we unlock puzzles together. With team members hailing from the U.S. to Canada, Trinidad, and Spain, we bring diverse experiences, perspectives, and cultural histories to the table that shape our work and allow us to learn from one other every day.

The work that we do is important, as we contribute to the livelihood of businesses that serve communities. We develop our own team with precision and care – welcoming and investing in multi-faceted professionals who believe in a mission larger than themselves and their position.

If you are on board with Mekanic’s purpose and promise, we can’t wait to hear from you. Please introduce yourself through email at hello@mekanic.com and attach your resume and link to your online portfolio, even if we don’t display a position that exactly matches your experience.
