Remote work flexibility

We’ll help each team member figure out the work set up that’s best for them, including WFH equipment or a dedicated desk space in our office. We value the health and safety of our people above all else, and our in-person work options will remain contingent on local safety guidelines and recommendations.

Our interviewing philosophy

Our goal is to get to know you in a low-pressure, friendly environment — and to give you ample opportunity to learn more about us, too.

Our typical process includes these types of experiences:

  • A take-home exercise where you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your proofreading and copywriting skills.
  • Additional conversations with your potential future team members, the hiring manager, and People Operations

We personally review every application, and if we think there might be a fit, we’ll typically reach out via email within a couple weeks to start the conversation.

We will always do what we can to be flexible around your personal time commitments, deadlines, and general availability. We know that by joining our interview process, you’re trusting us with your time — so we’ll do our best to run a process for you that’s as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
