What staff appreciates about Umbrella
Umbrella’s leadership team has worked to build an inclusive work environment which encourages personal and professional development and rewards team members who embrace our core values. We keep our team in the loop by hosting weekly huddles and quarterly townhalls while prioritizing promoting from within. Visit the Umbrella blog to get a feel for who we are and what we are passionate about.
COVID taught us our team could, and should, be able to work from home. While we are currently 100% remote for the safety of our team, Umbrella offers a hybrid work from home/in office work week. Most team members choose to work from home 2-4 days a week when we are not fully remote or visiting client sites.

Who we are looking for:
We seek out team players who can flourish in our culture and embody the characteristics of our Core Values.
Be Humble | Umbrella team players are humble. They lack excessive ego or concerns about status. Humble people are quick to point out the contributions of others and slow to seek attention for their own. They share credit, emphasize team over self and define success collectively rather than individually. They are confident in their abilities but know and understand their limitations.
Be Hungry | Umbrella team players are hungry. They are always looking for more. More things to do. More to learn. More responsibility to take on. Hungry people almost never have to be pushed because they are self-motivated and diligent. They are constantly thinking about the next step and the next opportunity.
Be (People) Smart | Umbrella team players are smart. They have common sense about people. Smart people tend to know what is happening in a group situation and how to deal with others in the most effective way. They have good judgment and intuition around the subtleties of group dynamics and the impact of their words and actions. They can maintain professionalism while engaging in healthy conflict.
The Umbrella team is committed to exhibiting exemplary customer service skills with clients, vendors, visitors, and co-workers. Ideal candidates should aspire to excellence in both work and customer service and should show courtesy to all they encounter while representing Umbrella. We take pride in maintaining an air of professionalism in interpersonal relationships and exercising confidentiality concerning the affairs of the business.
