What Notion is looking for in applicants

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

With support from Creative Studio’s Operations Manager, you’ll run projects end to end, from fielding requests, prioritization, driving creative and deliverables, to measuring success, debriefs, and evangelizing the team’s work. Projects will span marketing, collateral across the company, talent brand, and internal comms, working cross functionally with teams across Notion.
