  • You’re team-oriented, willing to learn, can multitask and prioritize deliverables
  • Western time zone location is helpful though not mandatory
  • You’re comfortable working remotely and building relationships this way
  • You can work independently and manage multiple projects with minimal supervision

Why Wallop?


Wallop is building a team to become the world's leading digital agency for experiential travel, unique properties, and one-of-a-kind hospitality brands. 


We'll pay you a good salary that's commensurate with your experience. We provide a flexible schedule, extended health, dental, optional safely-distanced office in Vancouver (with snacks and coffee), a learning stipend, extended time-off during the holidays, and a great physical or digital work environment. 


This is a full-time, remote role. As Wallop has moved to remote-working, applicants do not need to be local to our Vancouver office but do need to be able to work a schedule that overlaps with our core hours (9am–5:30pm PST).
