SEJ’s “Secret Sauce”

We’ve been honing our remote-only workplace culture and best practices for 13 years. The result is an autonomous, global team in 6 countries and 7 time zones that thrives on collaboration, purpose, and no politics. Our best feature? A team that cares about the mastery of their work, the company and our people.

We offer full benefits for US-based employees, 4 weeks of parental leave, 2 weeks vacation… and a 4 day workweek.

We’re looking for a unicorn… is it you?

Someone who can see the potential heights we have yet to reach, and has both the vision and execution chops to make it a reality. We encourage you to apply and show us what you’ve got.
