Working at Sun Tribe

Careers

Sure, our office is in one of the coolest buildings in downtown Charlottesville – we love the Friday summer concerts and having some of the best happy hours in town just steps away from our door. We’re also not ashamed to say that our co-directors of recruitment are the team dogs that roam our office adorably begging for treats.

But that’s not why people choose Sun Tribe.

Here’s the truth: we find talented team members, and then we invest in their success. When people come to work here, they know they’re part of a team that believes in building up – and supporting – one another. A place that matches industry-leading benefits with a real commitment to work-life balance combined with all of the opportunities that come with being part of a fast-growing company.
