WHY BECOME AN OSTRONAUT?

What Do You Have to Look Forward To?

As the Director of Compliance at Ostro, you will have a unique opportunity to build, implement, mature, and lead our compliance program.

Compensation

The salary range estimate for this position is $166,250 - $220,500 USD. These numbers are based on our compensation philosophy and US national averages since, as a fully remote company, we do not adjust compensation based on location.

Ostro’s goal is to provide an inclusive and equitable work environment for current and future Ostronauts. In support of our core value of practicing radical honesty, we display our salary range for each job posting across all US locations, whether or not we are required to do so. Within that range, actual compensation is determined by several factors, including but not limited to skills, job expectations, and relevant training.

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. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. 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.
