- That said, the rest of the team is always ready to lend a hand or even an ear if you just need to bounce around some ideas
- Competitive compensation and equity in a rapidly-growing company. We want to hire the best people, and we re ready to pay for them. We use a standardized salary scale set at the 90th percentile of US salaries for each role regardless of where you are in the world
- 401(k) match, health insurance, and other medical benefits (US-based employees)

- Great benefits which include three weeks paid vacation (plus another week during the December holidays), sabbaticals every three years, professional development credit, paid family leave, a new laptop every three years, and more
- (Paid for) annual retreats to spend time with the team and have fun together (or a still-pretty-great virtual retreat when there s a global pandemic)

- Named one of the Best Remote Companies to Work For in 2022 by We Work Remotely, we ve been around since 2014, have the greatest customers in the world, and a team that will stop at nothing to help our creators win. If this sounds like something you re interested in, let s talk!
About the hiring process
Interested in joining our team? Great!
We ll begin reviewing applications immediately and continue to review them for the first two weeks after the date of posting. There's no benefit to applying in the first five minutes, and we'd rather you take your time. We heavily weigh the answers to our application form rather than data from LinkedIn or resumes. We then reduce the candidate pool down to a small handful who move on to a small test project.
If your application is chosen to move on to the next phase, we ll send you a small (paid) test project to be completed within 72 hours of receipt. This will be a written assignment where we ask you to respond to mock email questions, and provide feedback on a real-life conversation between a creator and an agent.
If selected after the project stage, we will run a mock live chat session with you. The goal of this phase is to give us a sense of your voice and tone in chat, and to give you a sense of what it s like to work with our customers
As the final round, you ll be interviewed over Zoom by our VP of Creator Support and Senior Product Liaison. These interviews typically last 30-45 minutes each and are structured to get a feel for your experience and how you approach work. No trust falls or riddles to worry about here
The last interview will be with Spencer, our CEO, who can answer any questions you have about the broader goals and workings of the company.
After that, we'll decide on our final candidates and ask for professional references from both a previous co-worker and a manager. We'll reach out to those references to set up a brief 10-minute call.
Finally, all going well, we'll make a written offer to the successful candidate which can be signed electronically
We re looking forward to chatting
