We're looking for people who understand the value of teamwork, self discipline, hard work and respect for the privacy of our clients. We have fun in what we do but you must have a passion for this job.

Investigating the paranormal is hard work. It is not only about investigating, but analyzing the data you collect afterwards. This is the heavier part of it all. It also takes a scientific mind, the right tools, turning in reports on time and a passion to help people in need. Being a member of THINGS means being a team player and sharing your skills with the group. Collaboration is also important to us. We are open to collaborating with other teams that use similar or the same techniques that we do.
