About the work lifestyle at V R P :

At VRP, we love what we do, and we've got the perfect merger between work and luxury.

We’re extremely fortunate to be working in a super cool luxury space. And while there’s no denying that we can sometimes accomplish way more when we’re all working together in the same place, we work remotely or from home 90% of the time.

We have the luxury and freedom of being able to engage our brains and talents to accomplish high-value work, in an industry we’re extremely passionate about, and without the hundreds of distractions that come with the traditional office space.

Imagine no longer having to go through the repetitive misery of the daily commute...

Imagine being able to take your time in the morning, and never having to rush out the door without spending quality time with your family...

Imagine not having to be stuck in gridlock traffic, or feel claustrophobic next to random strangers, jam-packed like sardines in a over-stuffed bus or train with zero fresh air circulation...

Imagine never getting home late, missing dinner, or missing your kids bedtime...

Imagine no longer having to waste a Saturday or Sunday doing all the chores you couldn’t get done during the week - like taking care of the lawn, going to the store, paying or renegotiating bills, etc…

And just imagine everything else you can accomplish with the extra 1-2hrs per day that you usually spend commuting… (that’s 5-10hrs per week, and 20-40hrs per month!)

Here’s the brutal truth - the average daily commute is not only terrible for the environment, the science behind just how brutal it can be on your personal health is mounting, and it all points to the same conclusion; it’s horrible for both your physical and mental health, and it takes a HUGE yet overlooked toll on your personal relationships.

The dreaded daily commute adds a ton of stress, and is associated with an increased risk for obesity, insomnia, stress, neck and back pain, high blood pressure and other stress-related ills like heart attacks and depression, and even divorce.

Essentially, the longer the commute, the higher the risks.

Needless to say, we do our best work when we don’t have to stress out about beating the rush or worry about finding time for life.


Growth opporunity & benefits of working at V R P :

It's no secret that getting in at the earlier stages of a strong company is probably your best bet for a fast-tracked lucrative career. We are that company.

We don't hire backgrounds, we only hire top talent, and this is a chance for the right person to be an important part of building something truly special within our progressive company. But please, don’t apply unless you are an overachiever and can prove it.

1.  You always do the right thing;
You treat people with respect, regardless of their status or opinions.
You are non political and have no ego when you disagree with others.
You're known for your candor & transparency, you see dishonesty as intolerable, and you always do the right thing.

2. You must be intrinsically motivated;
You are tenacious, and inspire others with your thirst for excellence.
You care deeply about your work and find great dignity in your own accomplishments, no matter the role you’re in, and rarely need external support or recognition from your peers. 

3. You are a strong independent leader;
You perform at a higher level than most, and surpass the targets assigned to you.
You listen well instead of reacting fast, and you are articulate and and extremely clear in your speech and writing.
You have great emotional intelligence, you thrive in stressful situations, and you consistently come out on top in the face of adversity.

4. You are precise in your work;
You learn fast, implement fast, and make very few errors.
You are also very quick to spot and admit mistakes, and you’re even faster when it comes to helping fix them.
You hold great value in staying nimble, and you always find time to simplify and minimize complexity.

5. You think long term;
You have a tremendous amount of loyalty to your teammates, and you think strategically and prioritize well with an outstanding foresight of the bigger picture.
You understand that true internal growth and upward momentum is not determined by exterior recognition of your accomplishments or a change in job title, and you care most about achieving the goals and excelling within the role you are already in.

6. You are growth oriented
You extend trust to your teammates, and you proactively support and share information openly to help the team grow smarter and stronger as a whole.
You identify root causes that hinder growth, get beyond just treating short-term symptoms, and contribute effectively outside of your specialty.
You care deeply about VRP’s success and growth as a whole, and seek what is best the your team rather than what is best for yourself.


The kicker:

We look at "experience" differently. As a boutique agency at the forefront of our industry, we're doing a lot of things that haven't been done before, and "experience" doesn't necessarily prepare you for the unknown.

What we value most is your understanding of your own life experience, wether it’s from your past jobs, academic career, sports, coaching, etc… and how you think you can apply it to the position.

So, if you believe you've got what it takes, we want to hear from you!
