While our core team and headquarters are in Sacramento, California, we welcome remote workers from all over the country.
We've built a strong culture to foster valuable team relationships with both remote and California team members.
We host frequent trips during the year to bring the team together for extended periods of face-to-face time to build deeper relationships. Some examples of trips include our domestic excursions to San Diego, Newport Beach, and Lake Tahoe. Along with international trips to Costa Rica, Belize, and the Dominican Republic.
You will help our team deliver well-defined, sophisticated, and impactful products to our customers by working with a cross-functional team of engineers, product owners, stakeholders, marketing teams, and customer support teams.
