Are a team player. Every member of the Iowa Wild staff wears many hats, and you love collecting hats.

YOU ARE A:
Face of the Franchise. Timely, professional, and courteous are ingrained in your being. You represent the Iowa Wild through various events in Central Iowa. There will always be a smile on your face and your body language is always inviting of conversation and connection.

Cultural Centerpiece. Your interaction with our employees, fans and community is constant. Day or night, weekday or weekend, connections matter. People see you as a supportive resource and a critical part of our team and the Iowa Wild’s culture and brand. You thrive on interactions within our community, sharing our customer benefit programs and promoting the sport of hockey. You present the best version of yourself and our brand, both on and off the ice.
