Who Are We/What’s the culture like? We are a small company of (33) fully remote workers. We’ve been remote since before COV-ID 19 and will remain so afterward. We are pretty laid back in the sense that we don't want people that need to be micro-managed. We just want people who want to do a great job and who are willing to work within our processes. Management always has their virtual doors open so you can share concerns and new ideas. We communicate on Slack daily and even have a water-cooler channel that is specifically for NOT work. Communication on the water-cooler channel is voluntary and usually humorous. We also have a virtual high-five channel so that everyone can share their accomplishments or congratulate another on theirs.
