Healthy Team Dynamics; we’ve run remote companies for our whole careers and understand what it takes to establish healthy remote work dynamics.

Freedom; we don’t have set vacation days, and we do everything possible to set you up for success by helping you create your unique ideal working environment.

Competitive salary (~$5K/mo).

A tenacious problem-solver; you hold your performance to a high bar and are motivated to consistently work towards stretch goals; you’re resourceful and not offset or discouraged by unforeseen challenges.

Detail oriented; you see the typos in an email even if you try not to. When testing code, often you spot bugs by simply looking at the code without making it run.

A team player; you manage priorities effectively with a keen awareness toward how your work can support the team; you naturally break down silos with proactive communication.

Someone who takes ownership; you like to take ownership for the projects you are leading and do whatever it takes to make sure those projects are successful.
