Our Work Style

Because we are a fully remote team, we benefit from the flexibility to work whenever, wherever, and however suits each of us best. This isn't a typical full time job in that we don't require team members to work 40 hours a week. We do track our time so that we can identify any time sinks but we don't use it for accountability. Aside from a few weekly scheduled meetings, your time is yours to use as you see fit. We will expect you to fulfill your commitments to the team within weekly/bi-weekly sprints and be considerate in how you request the time of other team members. We don't have much management overhead so you will need to be self-motivated and communicate proactively with the team to make sure you don't leave anyone hanging. It is unlikely that you will have much face-time with clients, unless that is something that excites you.
