Time away from work is important, so we’ve got generous flexible PTO, sick leave and parental leave.

Who won’t love this job 🧐

We’re small (~5people), so if you like more established companies ,this role isn’t for you. You’ll help create our company’s culture.

We’re an early-stage startup. Priorities will shift and plans are made based on experiments. And we move really fast.

Everyone on the team is extremely mission-driven, and works incredibly hard to push towards our lofty ambitions. Most people won’t be cut out for it.

You should be comfortable with a dash of chaos. This is not the kind of job where you will be told what to do every day.
