Working with us
Our people matter to us. We know everyone has family and friends and for that reason our employees receive 4 weeks of leave each year. We understand that time away from work is important and we know well-rested and well-rounded people make better decisions...and ultimately are more productive when at work!
We pay commensurate with experience and we make sure you’re looked after.
Our team is spread across the globe - mainly the US and Australia. This role will be based out of our shiny new Austin office!
We prefer hands on collaboration so this position is not available for remote workers. Unfortunately we're unable to sponsor people into the US at this time.
We are a fast-growing team with big ambitions. We need people who can help us build a solid foundation for the future. If you want to make a difference in a fast-growing team, now is the time to join.
