Am I a good fit?
Skills and experience are important, for sure; but not as important as character. We can teach you new skills and help you hone existing ones, but we cannot teach personality or character. The primary barometer of your longevity with InMaricopa is our core values. If they resonate – even excite – you, you’re likely a great fit for our team. If they don’t, that’s OK; it’s a lot better to find out a job is not right for you before you even apply than after you’ve been hired.
In addition to having a passion for helping people and living our core values, you are results-oriented, competitive, coachable, cheerful, helpful and not afraid to laugh. You work effectively independently and within a team, are self-motivated and take initiative.
What are the benefits of working at InMaricopa?
The important, albeit less traditional, benefits include working for the market leader in an environment that provides flexibility, freedom, fun, autonomy and stability. We have supportive ownership and myriad opportunities to learn/grow and advance your career.

The opportunity for an equity position in the company is available to the person who showcases leadership and character commensurate with our core values.
We also offer the opportunity to earn a competitive salary, bonuses, subsidized medial insurance, paid time off, sick time, holiday pay, auto and cell phone allowances and more. A short commute will also add to your quality of life.
What is a day-in-the-life of InMaricopa’s editorial director?
