Archive Job Description

We’re on a mission to bring together talented people and great remote jobs by making cross border hiring easy. We want to spread the privileges and benefits of great employment and help make this the norm for remote workers around the world.

We are a 100% distributed company that began its journey in 2019. We’re well-funded and are assembling the core team that will take us to the next level. We’re already a global company with team members in the UK, India, the Bahamas, Germany, the USA, Finland, Latvia, and Mexico.

Hiring people internationally is complicated – with interacting engineering, legal, financial, operations, and HR processes. We’d like to find people who think this is as interesting a challenge as we do.

We’re an inclusive and diverse workplace, and welcome applicants from marginalized groups – the world over.

A platform that makes it easy to employ remote workers around the world has never been more necessary. We are just at the beginning of the exciting, new “distributed HR” category, and the headroom for growth is staggering.
