How we will support you

We strive to empower our team members to be self-directed and self-motivated in their work.

  • Remote First: We've always been a fully distributed company with team members all over the world.
  • Commitment to Personal Growth: Every team member has an annual budget to invest in their professional development including an annual conference budget.
  • Work/Life Balance: Flexible working hours and unlimited paid time off. We want you to thrive both in and out of the office. We trust you to use good judgment and take the time off that you need to bring your best self to work.
  • Social Events: As a fully remote company it’s important that we get some time together to socialize and get to know one another outside of the day to day projects and meetings we work on.  Therefore, we organize quarterly online social events e.g remote cooking classes, quizzes etc.
  • Work Anniversary Gifts

If you think you might thrive in this environment, we would love to hear from you.
