    • Influence without authority. Effectively manage various stakeholder groups consisting of strong personalities. People want to work with you again and again.
    • You are autonomous, organize your day efficiently and optimize for low maintenance, high results (this includes researching before asking someone for specific information, coming up with solutions to issues, not just questions).
    • You have a knack for establishing connections and are eager to collaborate with internal teams in a startup's fast-paced atmosphere.
    • You have great focus on structure and detail, as well as a strong sense of self-direction and time management.

    What Makes Us Special

    • Accelerate your personal and career growth. 10x your learning and networking opportunities by being exposed to multiple companies and teams each year. We give timely, candid, and direct feedback and expect you to do the same. We run 3-month performance reviews for each person. This helps us improve the team, maintain quality of service and proactively promote people who show sustained performance at the next level.
    • Structured onboarding and support network. Who says small companies need to be chaotic? Our onboarding guide contains everything you need, and if you need more, there's our #help channel! We proactively share our learning with each other through sharing sessions and help each other resolve complex situations through rubber-ducky peer-mentoring. 
    • Levels tied to compensation. Your compensation changes when your title and level change. This is not the case with other companies (e.g. someone promotes, but they don't earn more money afterward). 
    • Paid sabbatical accrued every 3 years. You get a paid month off every 3 years, on top of your regular holiday allowance. You can also optionally take a 1-month unpaid sabbatical every 12 months.
    • [optional] 4-day workweek. Free up space and time to pursue an MBA, travel for a longer time, or just do nothing. Our default is a 5-day workweek, you can opt in and out of a 4-day workweek with at least one month's notice to minimize the impact on the team's workload. The compensation impact is 80% of the salary in years 1-2, 85% of the salary in years 3, and 90% of the salary in years 4+.
    • Remote working. We work distributed first. We recommend setting up a dedicated workspace for which you can choose to expense a MacBook, external monitor, ring light, room divider, and plants. As it can sometimes get lonely, consider that you'll need to proactively schedule in-person meetings, sports, or other activities that provide a good cutoff and help you recharge after work. 
    • Don't like the job title? Here's your chance to make it your own. We are open to modifying your title based on your suggestions.
