We are looking for a rock star Pod Owner. This job is full-time, 40 hours per week.

Regarding our interview process, we believe that formal interviews don’t reasonably reflect people’s ability to deliver, their communication and whether they are a good fit in our organization. So instead, we do more minimal interviews and hire people on a probationary basis and during that time, if either of us feel it isn’t a good fit, then we can choose to part ways. Hopefully you’ll have made some money and learned a few things to add to your CV and we’ve gotten some great code.

Below are some additional details on what we’re looking for in a candidate. We look forward to hearing from you!!
