If you are a self-starter with an inquisitive mind and track record for delivering excellent results that thrill your customers and teammates, then we may have an opportunity for you... however, we are unusually selective about who we ask to join our team.

You might notice we don’t have the requirements, qualifications, and minutia of typical job descriptions. We don’t care about any of that as we do not hire based on specific buzzwords, technologies, or popular acronyms on your resume.

We are looking for specific examples from your previous experience that proves you can do the job so that when you sit back at the end of your tenure and reflect on your time at OpenSesame it is with a wide grin on your face knowing you exceeded all of the performance expectations and are leaving the business in a much better place than you found it.

Become the Best Version of Yourself

We want OpenSesame to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and the world we live in. We know that a variety of perspectives and voices strengthen our ability to deliver the spark of learning to everyone. We hold ourselves accountable to create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive communities through continuous learning, personal growth, and working to support our customers. We welcome you to bring your authentic self to our team and grow beyond your expectations.
