โ˜˜๏ธ Where we are and how we work: โ˜˜๏ธ

We are a distributed team all over the globe but our development team is mainly working during Western European & US east coast working hours.
We are used to async communication over Slack but also have regular weekly meetings to sync up.
Our tech stack is Ruby / Javascript / SQL / Git
We optimize new features for the long term. For us, this is not a sprint but a marathon.

Working for Lifetimely doesn’t feel like the usual office or startup gig: we are a distributed group of ten people across nine different countries ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑ ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌ ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ถ ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท with our own way of working. Some of us are nomads, some just like working remotely. We highly encourage written (long-form) communication and documenting things on Notion and generally don’t like tight fixed schedules. There is not really much management or oversight, we expect you to know how to manage yourself. We prioritize shipping and results above how or when you do the work.
Two meetings per week, one for the devs on Tuesday, another one on Thursdays for everyone. That’s it.

If you are into distributed work and prefer the lifestyle aspects or maybe live somewhere with not a lot of exciting startups, you will enjoy working with us.

Compensation for this position is between $40k-$95k and varies with experience and skillset. This is a full-time position: you will be employed through either as an employee with benefits or as a contractor depending on your preferences.
