    • You share learnings openly.
  • You are a team player with a high level of integrity and desire to assist your team and customers.

  • Holding one to ones with the three Customer Success and Experience team members you manage 
  • Jumping on a recorded call with a customer at risk of churning to try to retain the account, sharing your learnings with product and adding relevant notes to Product Board

Perks:

  • 100% remote, 100% flexible: We trust each member of our team to work when they wish, and from a location they choose (between the PST and CET time zones). We believe in working smarter, not harder - we don't value  presenteeism. 
  • Salary: $90-$110k + variable compensation
    • Why the range? We decide salaries based on the cost of living where you're based 
  • $200 / month cash coworking stipend 
  • Generous Employee Stock Options with an attractive strike price
  • Unique culture: we’re humans first and believe that work is more fulfilling when we can show our full selves to the people we work with.

We're ambitious but realistic - we know anything worth doing takes time. We trust each member of our team to work when they wish, and from a location they choose. We believe in working smarter, not harder - we don't value presenteeism and we're not impressed by long working hours. Above all, we value the contribution of each individual and take seriously our responsibility to enable you to work on things you love. These aren't just words - they're part of everything we do, including how we design our products.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
