    Other info

    You will work remotely, decide your own hours, and find self-fulfillment through results-focused work. The team members spend only 2−3% of their time in meetings — most of their time is spent researching, documenting, coding, and building. As a member of the team, you will need to be fiercely independent and self-directed.

    You will become obsessed with learning and personal growth and will need to maintain high levels of self-discipline to avoid distractions atypical to the traditional office environment. Working for a startup is intense. Tasks will be ambiguous, and it will be up to you as the owner of a project to fully understand, research, and develop your solution.

    If you’re highly motivated, versatile, smart, persistent, and a great teammate, we want to hear from you!
