We are a 100% remote company and this is a 100% remote position. You work from wherever you live. Our expectation is that you have or will have a quiet, comfortable and well-connected spot from which you’ll be available to do the work. We can help you get what you need to have an effective home office. You’ll have less interaction than if you worked in an office, but less distractions too.
Our business hours are US East Coast hours – you will need to have a large overlap of hours in your workday during those hours to meet and communicate with customers. Most of our customers are based in North America. While technically possible, it is unlikely that we would work with you if all your daytime hours are all of our customer and team member nighttime hours & vice versa.
Competitive base salary.
You participate in the Ring.io Team Bonus Plan
If you plan to stay with us for the long term, you will be eligible to get stock options.
Unlimited vacation (within reason)
Work / life flexibility.
If you are based in the US, we will hire you as a W-2 employee and you’ll get 2x/mo paychecks. If you are based outside the US we will hire you as an independent contractor and we’ll pay your 1x/mo invoice.
If you live in a country without public health insurance, we will subsidize some of your health insurance costs. You pick your health insurance, we reimburse some of your insurance expenses
