Our Work Environment
myZone works in a results-only work environment (ROWE) so you are provided flexibility in setting your own hours and optionally working from home. Additional benefits of ROWE include no tracking of sick days or vacation time. We were inspired by Dan Pink’s Ted Talk on the science of motivation, and believe that an intrinsically motivated team is the best way to solve the problems of the 21st century (ie: we don’t use carrots or sticks!).

We’re obsessed with operational efficiencies and making things better. We’re constantly pursuing personal and professional development. The world (especially in the technology industry) is changing exponentially faster every year, and our team takes pride in being flexible while responding to new opportunities.

In the video please introduce yourself and why you’re a great fit for this role.
The video should be one minute or less and should be uploaded to YouTube. If you don’t want other people to find it, mark it as unlisted. Don’t mark it as private or disallow embedding, or we won’t be able to see it.
The video should contain nothing except for you talking. No screenshots or postproduction wizardry please; we don’t want this to turn into a video making contest.
Please do not recite a script written beforehand. Just talk spontaneously as you would to a friend. People delivering memorized speeches (or worse still, text read off the screen) usually come off as robotic. Unless you’re a good enough actor to fake spontaneity, you lose more in the stilted delivery than you gain from a more polished message.
Most importantly, have fun with this (bonus points for creativity)! It is an opportunity for us to get to know you better!
Thanks for taking the time to check out this opportunity! Unfortunately, due to the number of applications that we receive, we are not able to contact everyone who applies. However, all applications are all stored in our talent database and will be considered for future opportunities.
Please apply here directly. We will not be answering direct emails. Thank you!
