Description

SoulPancake is actor Rainn Wilson’s media and production company that encourages people to chew on life’s big questions and figure out what it means to be human through thought-provoking online and video content and creative engagement opportunities. We like people who know how to hustle (and if you know how to do the hustle, that’s even better). We’ve decked out our office with melted crayons, chartreuse filing cabinets, and neon zipties. We create content about life, death, love, purpose, art, and the soul. If that sounds like an environment you’d enjoy, and you know how to work hard with a big smile on your face, then SoulPancake is the right place for you! We offer a fun, positive, and collaborative work environment with the opportunity for hands-on experience and opportunities for creative, meaningful work.
