What's Hard About This Job

Working Remotely - We're a remote-first company, and we never want to have an office. This is great if you like working by yourself in the quiet, but it can be terribly painful if you need the energy of coworkers nearby.

Our Cultural Values - We're an American company with an incredibly unusual culture. Even by American standards, our 7 cultural values are highly unusual. Our culture is challenging for people accustomed to corporate culture and especially difficult for people who grew up in Confucian cultures. It's a great culture for people who speak directly and have a great deal of self-confidence and ownership. If you identify as a misfit, you'll do well.

Multiple Software Systems - You're going to need to learn how to use 12 different software systems. This is great if you want to get exposed to and experienced with lots of technology, but it can be tough if you have a hard time learning technology. Secret Message - When you apply, you'll see a box that asks if you want to add anything else. Type in PINKELEPHANT in all capital letters exactly as we've shown it here. 

Leadership Expectations - Other than the company founder (who doesn't have a tech background), you will be our first technology specialist. The combination of being solely responsible for all aspects of the technology and our lack of technical prowess could be overwhelming to someone who wants to be told what to do and how to do it. You need to have a leadership mindset, or this won't work.


Cheat Code for getting a job with us:

1) Our application comprises the majority of our recruiting process. Because of that, we suggest that you give us thoughtful responses and rich stories. We typically only interview applicants who give rich and detailed answers to our questions. If you write short responses so that you can hurry up and finish the application, you will not get interviewed. 

2) Tell us stories about how your actions match your beliefs and values. For example, if I say I value health and fitness, you don't know if I'm telling you the truth or if I'm just telling you what sounds good. But, if I tell you things I've done, I can illustrate my values of health and fitness with proof. For example, I go to the gym 4 days per week, I've done 6 triathlons, including an Ironman, and I can swim 3000 meters in one hour. My examples of things I've done prove that my actions match my values system. 

3) Be vulnerable and honest. We take very detailed notes during the interview process, and we conduct extensive background checks. If the stories you tell about yourself don't match what your references say, we will not hire you. We'd rather hire a C student who is honest about being a C student than someone who is a C student but tries to pass themselves off as an A student. Remember, this is an entry-level job. We're not looking for perfect. We're looking for an excellent cultural fit.
