Salary and benefits

We’re bootstrapped, profitable, and committed to building a sustainable company that will grow for decades to come. We’ve built a benefits package that invests in our employee’s long-term personal and professional growth and well-being. Here’s a sample of what that includes:

  • 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 + national holidays. You’ll receive 5 weeks of paid time off + national holidays where you live.
  • Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.
  • Education stipend. You’ll have a monthly budget to buy books, courses, and other resources you need to continue learning and developing.
  • Competitive compensation.
  • And much more!
