Working with us
Our people matter to us. We know everyone has family and friends and for that reason our employees receive 20 days (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 when it comes to benefits.
Our Crew
Our team is spread across the globe - mainly in the US and Australia. Our Marketing and Brand teams work together in Austin, Texas.
For this position we will need you to join our team in our offices in Austin, Texas. 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.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here is a reflection of the people – laid back, casual, and most of all, jovial. No workplace is ever going to be the same as home, but here there is a similar level of comfort. Folks are exceptionally welcoming and willing to help out where they can. Humor is necessary to get through the work day, and we've got that in spades here.

What projects are you most excited about?

Our content team is hard at work to continue providing a differential and expansive training offering to our customers. There is a ton of awesome new stuff in the works for our enterprise offering, Teams, and I can’t wait to continue to help businesses and enterprises in their cloud adoption journey. 2019 is going to be a big year!
