AN IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE APPLYING TO US:
All of Dhar Mann Studios' new hires will begin at the associate level, regardless of what position was applied for.

Our organization looks to hire the BEST of the best and we focus on finding candidates who are a strong cultural fit. We have a 3 month 'Discovery Period' in place that allows us to get to know each new hire better and assess their skill set. Management-level roles will be part of a different Discovery Period for each step of the ladder (but again this does not affect your pay or compensation package).
