Openhouse actively seeks diversity in its staff, and we invite applications from people from a variety of backgrounds. We are searching for candidates of color, candidates in the LGBTQ community, and candidates who identify personally at any part of the incredibly rich gender spectrum. Systemic inequities in hiring have caused women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ folks, and others to apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Openhouse encourages you to break that statistic and apply, as no one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application.
