Timing Summer 2021

Location We're a fully remote team, but we have a strong preference for folks located in US time zones.

Compensation We try to be (more than) fair and (excessively) transparent, and avoid negotiating because it creates bias and unintended disparities.

Curious about our compensation? See here for a full breakdown of our compensation bands, expectations for each level.
