Write documentation for our API and be responsible for making sure our clients understand how the API works.

Write processes to guarantee the data in our database is accurate with the real world, minimizing human labor by using technology

Traction; we have an existing business that has bootstrapped successfully and grown using the money we’ve earned from real customers!
Healthy Team Dynamics; we’ve run remote companies for our whole careers and understand what it takes to establish healthy remote work dynamics.
Freedom; we don’t have set vacation days, and we do everything possible to set you up for success by helping you create your unique ideal working environment.

You’d Describe Yourself As:
A tenacious problem-solver; you hold your performance to a high bar and are motivated to consistently work towards stretch goals; you’re resourceful and not offset or discouraged by unforeseen challenges.
Detail oriented; you see the typos in an email even if you try not to. When testing code, often you spot bugs by simply looking at the code without making it run.
A team player; you manage priorities effectively with a keen awareness toward how your work can support the team; you naturally break down silos with proactive communication.
