Work from anywhere in the US or Canada; if you are in Central or South America, let’s talk. This will be a 100% remote position. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY if your working hours are in a timezone outside of the US range as our team will not be able to support those working hours (we’ve tried, it’s just too hard).

How To Apply

Make sure to select “Recruiter” from the list of options. BEFORE APPLYING, please take the time to read this job post carefully. So many people seem to apply without actually reading it.

This is a one time hourly contract position, though we are always seeking longer relationships with kick-ass people. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY if your working timezone is outside of the US range.

With your application, make sure to include the following:

  • Links to your resume and Linkedin profile
