    Work-Life balance. That means 8 hours of work, 5 days each week (for a total of 40 hours) because the time you spend outside of work is just as important as the time you spend working.

    Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).

    Generous paid vacation. 40 days of paid time off to use however you like (vacation, national holidays, etc.).

    Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.
