Crush Studio is seeking a talented, creative and organized Denver-based Project Manager to join our growing team. We are an event design and production studio based in Denver, specializing in producing unique set designs, event experiences and custom corporate gifting. Our office is local but our work is national. We bring brands and events to life by designing, producing, and installing incredible event decor, signage, custom furniture and set pieces.

 We love what we do and have a lot of fun while we do it and are therefore looking for someone that fits in with our team culture! The hours can sometimes be crazy, and the workload even crazier, so we want someone that is ready to roll up their sleeves, be part of the team and kick ass with us.

Crush is currently operating on a hybrid model, with a mix of remote and in-office working depending on project needs. We typically like employees to be in the Denver studio at least three days a week, with more flexibility after work travel or for personal needs.
