Do you want to use your videography experience and skillset to help Harkla change more lives for those with special needs? 

We’re looking for a full time videographer to help us create more free content, paid online courses, and product videos with our current in-house content team. 

This is a hybrid work role local to Boise, Idaho. The videographer will be expected to be in the Harkla Office 2-3 times per week to record videos and podcasts with our content team. 

Please read about our company, mission, and core values below:

Harkla's Core Principles

Harkla has one mission: Help families raise happy and healthy children with special needs.

This mission is at the core of everything we do. Every decision is centered around the question of "how does this help our customers?"

We try to accomplish this through 

  • free content (YouTube, social media, podcast, etc.)
  • Online courses for therapists, parents, and educators
  • High-quality physical sensory products

The way we differentiate ourselves from our competition is by always asking, how can we be more helpful? In customer service, our blog, or post-purchase information, we want to be more helpful. 

Harkla's Core Principles:

  • Our customers are at the core of our business. We are helping families raise children with autism, ADHD, and sensory issues. Keep this in mind with every decision.
  • You are responsible for your work. Tell what you are going to do versus asking for permission. 
  • Mistakes are OK. Not extracting lessons and implementing those into future processes is not OK.
  • Lead with questions, not answers.
  • Expect dialogues & debates. We are passionate people trying to do something great.
  • 100% of all energy and resources go to our core focus.
  • We are a systems-based company. Freedom of thought comes from a foundation of discipline.
    • Freedom and responsibility within the framework of a highly developed system. 

Harkla is a highly autonomous, hard working group of people trying to change the world of special needs for the better. This is a great environment for hungry, self-starters who want the ability to learn, grow, and make a large social impact. 

This is not a great environment for people who want a comfortable, repeatable, straightforward job, and don’t want the responsibility that comes with a flexible, autonomous work position.
