We have an opening!

We’re looking for someone who can create photo & video content for all our physical and digital platforms.

Roles & Responsibilities:

  • Plate, style, and prepare food for the camera. (Experience not necessary, we can teach you if you have taste.)
  • Shoot food, lots and lots of food.
  • Shoot all sorts of food videos: packaging, unboxing, cooking, assembly, etc.
  • Post-process your photos and videos.
  • Post them in social media.
  • Note: delivery food can be shot at home, but some photos need to be in the restaurant.

Skills & Prerequisites:

  • No fancy equipment needed. If you can shoot high quality photos and videos with your smartphone, why not?
  • Fancy equipment welcome. If you’ve got them, you’re more than welcome to use them.
  • No required degrees.
  • If you’re great at photos but lack skills in video, we may still consider you for the role. Skills can be trained.
  • You need to be creative, resourceful, and resilient.
  • It would help tremendously if you’re a fan of our brands and products.

Job Details:

  • You will frequently receive FREE delivery food at home, all paid for by Lowbrow. (A perk at first, but a curse after a month.)
  • This is a full-time position.
  • Salary range: 18–25k net, depending on skill and experience.
  • Fresh grads are more than welcome to apply.
  • Other application details are listed below.

How to Apply:

    See “Next Steps to Get Hired” below for instructions.

How We Choose People

Choosing people to work with isn’t so different from choosing your friends. You avoid superficial traits, look for shared values & interests, and find ways to nurture the relationship long-term.

Our rule of thumb is to only work with people we like and respect. That only plays out if everyone practiced kindness, self-awareness, dependability, honesty, and a genuine concern for the well-being of the team. Needless to say, we take hiring seriously.

Culture Fit

This is not about how similar our favorite TV shows are. Do we value the same things? Do we see people the same way? Do we have a shared view of the world?

Goals Fit

Are we both working towards the same destination? Does the company's path align with the personal path you want for yourself?

Skills Fit

Do you have the innate talents to get the job done? If not, do you have the tenacity and curiosity to pick it up in the shortest amount of time?

Needless to say, we place considerable weight on individual performance. To reach our goals, we need the right people in the right jobs. Our search will always try to find the best fit.

Tolerance & Rationality

Most people understand basic values that all companies look for: honesty, hardwork, generosity, etc. But we’d like to point out two more that aren’t frequently discussed.

The first is tolerance. We believe people should be given the choice of how they want to live their lives. We don’t tolerate any sort of discrimination, moral or physical: racial, social, or gender-based. We want to create a safe place to work and this means respecting people and their personal choices. (Unless those personal choices tear down others, then we’ll intervene.)

The second is rationality. We don’t bring any sort of anti-science, religious, or superstitious beliefs to the workplace. This shouldn’t actually be necessary to mention, but we get our fair share of over-zealous applicants.

Training

Plenty of young folks expect a lengthy, university-style curriculum when they work somewhere. We don’t do that.

In Lowbrow, we believe that you learn faster when you’re simply hurled into the pool. This means that you have to prefer googling things over waiting around until someone gives you answers. We like people who help themselves.

That doesn’t mean we don’t help people get better—we just don’t believe that classroom-style training is effective. We do train, but we do it through repetitive and frequent feedback. Our method is to just let you do the work, screw up, get some feedback, and try again. If you’re a quick learner, you’ll get better at it in no time.

Work Life Balance

We don’t have an office and we run a completely remote team, but that doesn’t mean we take it easy.

While everyone in our team has unlimited vacations and time-offs (which we enforce without guilt-tripping), we still maintain mandatory work hours during the weekdays to have a sense of routine.

Normally we don’t bother people on break unless there’s an emergency, or if your work requires it. We also generally avoid all-nighters and hell sprints because those come at a steep cost. It’s counterproductive to work too hard that you start hating your job.

We have several work-life principles that we follow, but here are the 3 most important ones: (1) Work as much as you can without burning yourself out, (2) Your work is measured by your contribution, not your time, (3) The people who see work as investing in themselves will naturally advance faster than those who don’t.

In short, the better you are and the harder you work, the faster your career will grow. But if you want to take it easy, that’s okay too.

Difficulty

Plenty of people apply for work at Lowbrow because they think it’s fun and easy. We want to set the record straight before you jump in: not always.

The work will be difficult. There will be no shortage of failures and criticism. And you won’t get showered with praise. (Of course we never humiliate or abuse people!)

For those who want to grow and learn, this is fertile ground.

The Team

We’re a small and young team. We’re only 6 people in the core team, with an average age of 26 if you don’t count the old(er) boss.

We come from very different backgrounds, but despite our differences, we get along very well and genuinely look out for each other’s success.

Most workplaces have some form of internal politics, and we’re proud to say that we don’t. We’ve done this methodically over the years by making it a habit to talk things out and only keeping the people who won’t let the team spiral into a toxic blackhole.

Having a team that has your back and wants the best for you feels great, and it’s something that we can say we have.

Benefits

Since we’re not a large corporation swimming in cash, we don’t offer a lot of fancy benefits. (Would be nice in the future though.) We do have the mandatory ones: SSS and Philhealth.

Aside from that, we have:

  • The freedom to work whenever and wherever you want, mostly.
  • Unlimited vacations, no lates/absences/time-offs.
  • The peace of mind of a supportive team.
  • Company-sponsored learning materials such as books and online courses.
