About the company:

  • No investors, no debt. We control our own destiny and are focused on building a company that customers love.

  • Profit-sharing bonus. We set aside a pot of money at the end of each year based on profits and distribute bonuses according to a formula that uses as inputs your level within the company and the length of your tenure at the company.

  • Pension/401(k) contributions. We contribute 3% of your salary to your pension or 401(k).

About your time zone:

One of our values is that work-life balance leads to both better work and a better life, so we require that all our team members live in a time zone between Los Angeles and New York, inclusive. You can be located anywhere in the western hemisphere, though most of our team is in the USA and Canada.

Our interview process:

After you apply for this role, here's the process we'll go through to evaluate a mutual fit:

  1. Phone screen. We'll do a quick phone screen to assess a general fit.

  2. Technical interview. We'll talk shop with you to see if we're on the same page about the technical requirements for the role.

  3. Customer-facing skills interview. We'll try to get a feel for how well we think you'll work with both customers and our team.

  4. Paid trial project. We'll pay you for the opportunity to work together for 1 day.
