Here’s How You Can Potentially Work for Donald Glover
After describing his new multimedia company, Gilga, in a GQ profile, Donald Glover has opened up applications to fans.
Donald Glover wants fans on his Gilga team. On Sunday (April 9), the multihyphenate creator opened up the job portal for his new creative studio Gilga. Roles include ‘Acquisitions + Taste’ for applicants who specialize in learning the company’s “flavor and find other things like it,” along with two positions in AI services, ‘Conversational Marketing,’ ‘Concept Head’ and more.

In a promo video for the portal, Glover strolls at Gilga Farm with tangelos in-hand, telling applicants to “get to it” during the two-week job openings, before taking a bite out of a fruit and hurling at the end.
In his recent GQ profile, the artist also known as Childish Gambino explained his reasons for developing Gilga, which will release an upcoming short film created by Malia Obama, a co-writer on Swarm.
“Rich kids don’t do shit for money. They do things based on if it’s gonna make them happy. Like, that’s really what I realized this last go-around,” Glover said. “I made a lot of money, and it wasn’t that I was depressed or anything like that, but I realized it’s the people I was around that mattered. It’s the food I was able to eat. It’s the processes I was a part of that made me happy. People don’t get quality anymore and they need a filter. Gilga is a perfect filter for that shit.”
“Understanding somebody like Malia’s cachet means something,” added Fam Udeorji, creative partner at Gilga. “But we really wanted to make sure she could make what she wanted—even if it was a slow process.” He puts the Gilga mission this way: “It’s more about diversity of thought than just, like, diversity for optics. You know what I mean?”
