A little about us (your team here at Milestone)
We believe in doing great work – which is perhaps why we have long-standing relationships with some of the world’s leading brands. We are passionate about what we do. We work smart. We sweat the details. We deliver exceptional work. And we still leave at 5. (You won’t see our people here on weekends or late at night. Life is too short.). Bright, smart, talented people are critical to us, but attitude is key. Our teams are exceptional and friendly. Brilliant prima donnas probably shouldn’t apply. We are consistently growing and have added new business. It’s an exciting time. We pay competitively, we’re good to work with, and you will learn lots and do amazing things.
