Who We’re Looking For

- Initiative. The only way to continually improve is to continually be looking and finding ways to improve. We reward initiative and look for people who offer up ideas regularly.
- Empathy. In order to be able to make the best user experience, you must have a high level of empathy. The more closely you can think like the user, the better frontend developer you will be.
- Team-focused. As we grow, and as we are remote, it is incredibly important that teamwork and team communication be at the forefront of our daily work.

- Be Scrappy: We operate with an entrepreneurial mindset, testing and iterating, and starting with small budgets to prove our theories. Every team member contributes to profits and revenue, and is responsible for optimizing organizational resources, whether it’s time, money, or energy. We love to do a lot with a little, but aren’t afraid to invest when an idea shows traction.
- Stakeholder Focus: Maintains positive and collaborative connection to key stakeholders. Understands needs, goals and objectives of all constituent groups. Works to create, monitor, and exceed key metrics and targets in support of key groups.
- Relationship Management: Trusted by staff, peers, and stakeholder groups; Balances concern for productivity and results with sensitivity for employees’ needs/problems; Approachable and friendly; Handles difficult situations constructively and tactfully.
Our company values are important to us. We’ve shared them with you as someone interested in joining our team.
INNOVATE ALWAYS. Seek out unique perspectives, diverse experiences, and disconnected dots. These are the seeds of big ideas and exceeded expectations, made even better through constant collaboration.
EMBRACE FAILURE. Learn from the inevitable failures that result from innovation, and move forward quickly with a pioneering spirit. Champion the doers, celebrate their contributions to the team, and don’t shy away from difficult conversations.
DRIVE THE MISSION FORWARD. Everything we do is through the inclusive lens of helping all business owners launch and grow, regardless of who they are or where they come from. Hold yourself to the highest standards of quality and equality in everything you do.
EVERYONE TAKES OUT THE TRASH. No task is too small for the success of our company or our owners. Always be thoughtful and practice extreme kindness toward our team, partners, and owners.
SIMPLIFY AND COMMIT. Maintain a bias toward efficiency, acting quickly and testing often. Recognize the opportunity cost of every decision, commit to deadlines, be on time, and search for simple, smart solutions.
