Why you should join

You'll become an important part of a collaborative, remote-first team. We strive to provide a working environment that gives you room to learn and grow. We offer flexibility in work times and locations. Vacation time is not just encouraged, but celebrated and modeled.

We believe that high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we actively seek a diverse pool of applicants, including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender non-conforming, first and second-generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.

We offer competitive compensation, and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, vision, dental, 401K, and flexible paid time off.
