More about Pearachute
We are a small team of passionate problem-solvers. Our offices are in Bucktown next to the Damen Blue Line stop. Most of us work full-time but some of us are part-time, because we choose to spend more time with our children. We are venture-backed. We’ve been on Shark Tank. We work really efficiently. We all have a voice. We all care a lot about helping to make parents’ lives easier and about helping businesses thrive. We’re not all parents, but we all care about inspiring the next generation of conscious, compassionate, and creative citizens.
Our office is cheerful, energizing, and close to great restaurants.
Finally, this role is flexible. It’s full-time, but you could do part of it from home or on weekends. And nearly everyone works from home on Fridays.
We are excited to meet you!
