Why you might not be excited about us 👎

Priorities may shift quickly. Oftentimes, we're tackling very ambiguous problems that don't have clear-cut answers. While we make calculated bets, we have a strong culture of experimentation and we'll pivot as necessary based on what we're seeing in the data and what we're hearing from our users.
We don't have structured management (yet!). We don't have the management overhead to provide direction every step of the way and we're looking for someone that gets energized by being able to run with things.
Raw hours can make an impact on our business at our current stage. This means that we oftentimes work more than your typical 9-5 job. This won't always be the case as we scale, but it is at the present. That said, we trust each team member to create a flexible work schedule that allows them to be most productive while accommodating other priorities outside of work. We also strongly encourage time off to recharge the batteries: in addition to unlimited PTO, we've implemented a minimum 20 days vacation policy 🌴
