Employer: Pleasant Solutions
Job Type: Part-Time
Location: EDMONTON

Job Description:

Not your everyday stylist position. Collaborate with a full in-house video production team on portfolio-worthy projects: a steady job you will look forward to.

---Position Available:---

** Part-time hair and makeup stylist for video production, with optional wardrobe styling duties.
** We are also hiring for other positions (videographer / shoot producer, graphic designer, etc.). If you know someone in any of these areas, please do them a quick and friendly favour by letting them know about this posting.


---Position Overview:---

** Permanent and steady position.
** Dates can be scheduled well in advance if you need them to be.
** Hours are generally during traditional office hours, as opposed to evenings.
** Days are typically between 5 to 8 hours long when video production is scheduled.
** Duties will include styling hair, applying stage/video makeup, and optionally assisting with wardrobe selection.
** Stylist should be an expert in using hot tools, styling products, brushes, and makeup (particularly photo-ready or on-camera specific products). You do not need to own all of this equipment already.
** Stylist will not be required to bring wardrobe, only to provide styling tips and assistance when requested.
** Stylist will not be required to provide haircuts, but we are open to that if your skills allow for it.
** Work in a respectful and safe environment with great people. You will naturally be expected to promote that environment by sanitizing tools and applicators between actors.
** Clients will consist mainly of our employees and executives, company clients, and professional actors.
** Focus on achieving noticeably remarkable, Hollywood-level, portfolio-worthy results.
** Opportunity to collaborate on projects for exciting, award-winning products and services, with world-class video editors, videographers, script writers, and motion graphics designers.
** Occasional opportunities to work with famous actors for videos and other advertisements.
** Occasional opportunities to optionally assist with movie costume designing and even special FX makeup and hair.
** Employee will be on company payroll. No issues receiving prompt payment as agreed upon, unlike the common problems found in moonlighting short-term jobs.
** Travel is rare but may be occasionally required.
** Stylist position is not in a rushed salon setting where you only perform one type of styling or where quality results aren't appreciated or aren't captured on video for the long term.



---Requirements:---

** Very skilled with both female and male hair styles.
** Very skilled with both female and male video make-up.
** Able to work in a standing position for long periods of time.
** Takes pride in work.
** No specific requirements for education or industry experience. We evaluate each applicant based on merit rather than formalities.

---About The Work Environment:---

** Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.
** Mid-sized company but retaining the speed and flexibility of a smaller company.
** We are a great environment for both outgoing people and those who are very shy and introverted (applicable to non-client facing positions).
** We strive to have every employee sitting near a window for natural light and to have plenty of plants throughout the office; we care about employee health.
** Free onsite massage therapy.
** Private nap rooms for isolated thinking time or for taking a nap if you didn’t sleep well last night.
** Atrium to enjoy the sun during lunch.
** Social events worth remembering (fencing competitions, curling, video game or board game parties, coding competitions, commando combat training, robotics club coming soon, etc).
** An example of our culture: Lunch together is in a very comfy sofa room, and even the quiet types are comfortable there.
** Unlimited access to pillage our kitchens for caffeine, sugar, healthy snacks, soups, and more :)
** Additional perks that are cost-shared like motorized sit-stand desks.
** Task focused: everyone in the company heavily uses centralized to-do lists to stay organized, prioritize, and coordinate.
** Fast paced
** Consistent work/life balance: mandatory overtime is very rare.


---About The Company:---

** Pleasant Solutions is a dynamic company headquartered in Edmonton, a large satellite office in Toronto/Vancouver, and small satellite offices across Canada and the USA (including in Calgary, Ottawa, Saskatoon, New York, Denver, Boston, etc)
** Silicon Valley kind of excitement and growth potential.
** Fast growth: One of the 200 fastest growing technology companies in North America with 955% growth over 5 years (based on growth rates in published rankings of the 2014 Profit 500 and 2013 Deloitte Technology Fast 500). Canadian Profit Guide ranked us #88 out of 500 for fast growth in Canada, announced in Sept 2015.
** Stable and well diversified.
** Full of smart and passionate people whom you can learn from.

For consulting, we build both large and small custom software for clients who need an internal system or are commercializing an idea. Our in-house products include the high-security Pleasant Password Server, an innovative tool that lets non-technical people build their own web applications using spreadsheets, an event ticketing system, and other business software.
** An innovative software producer with an aim of achieving results in creative ways.
** We develop high quality software you will take pride in. Our company name says it all.
** Socially conscious (for example, we pay for employees to sponsor hundreds of WorldVision children).
