SCHEDULE

With seven Locals Love Us markets across the country, you will never be lacking for design work, but it will get especially busy the closer we get to publishing a print directory.

During the rest of the year, we are flexible on hours to accommodate family schedules and other events. What matters to us is that the work gets done, not that a seat is being kept warm.

COMPENSATION

We strive to offer a competitive wage, based on the experience of the applicant.

  • Experience in photography is also desirable, but not mandatory
  • Ability to communicate with a team to ensure that work advances through our design process

WHO WE ARE

Locals Love Us is a group of people who believe that there is a lot to love in every community, but that it’s not always easy to find. Our world of constant negative news and online attacks can cause us to lose sight of what we really love about where we live. Our passion is to sift through the noise, discover what the locals love and then let everyone know about it. We call it sharing the love.

WHY WE EXIST

We're here to deliver joy through our mission of sharing the love. We do this by caring for our culture, our people, and the communities we serve. We hire for passion and attitude, and empower people to make a difference. We look to Colossians 3:23 for inspiration, pouring our hearts into everything we do.

WHAT WE DO

It was a simple action that led to the founding of Locals Love Us. One that takes place hundreds of times every day. Someone rolls into town and asks a person who looks like they’ve been standing in the same place for decades: “where can I find a good ____?” The locals know the answer to that question no matter how you fill in the blank. And while any one person might not know, if you ask thousands of people, you’re bound to get the answer.

But who has time to ask all those people? That’s why Locals Love Us exists. You see, we don’t just ask anyone what they love the most. We ask everyone. And then we publish the list of the most loved places – everything from roofing contractors to real estate agents and restaurants – in an annual print and online directory. So when you come to town, you don’t need to ask the question. We already did.
