Working with us
Our people matter to us. We know everyone has a life, and we encourage you to live it to the fullest. We understand that with a start-up life comes stress, pressure and change and for that reason our employees receive 20 days (4 weeks) of leave each year.
We pay commensurate with experience and potential, and we make sure you’re looked after. We provide hyper-competitive benefits, and micro-management doesn’t exist.

Our Crew
Our team is spread across the globe, primarily in the US, Australia and the UK. Our B2B sales team hang their hats in Austin, Texas.
While we do have remote workers, this role requires hands-on collaboration so the position requires that you live in or relocate to Austin.

We are a fast-growing team with big ambitions. We need people who can help us build a solid foundation for the future. If you want to make a difference in a fast-growing team, now is the time to join.
