  • Writing support documentation and procedures, suggesting improvements to our systems and team organization.

How we work

We’re a remote team spread around the world. We enjoy this way of working and the freedom it affords all of us. We collaborate mainly using chat (Slack/Skype) and great simple tools like Trello.

We care about the people working with us and aim to build long-lasting relationships with anyone who will join the company. For this, personality fit on top of skills is key. We’re looking for smart, independent and creative people who want to build something great, take decisions independently and make an impact.
