Perks & Benefits

Design your own schedule

We use a unique employment framework which allows you to take time off whenever you want, without seeking permission. You can design your schedule such that you work only 4 days a week, taking every Friday off. Or maybe some weeks you work 3 days, others you work 4 days, and others you work 5 days. Or maybe you want to work 5 days per week but only 4 hours each day. That's totally up to you, and possible with our framework. Our team loves the freedom it gives them to live and work on their own terms.

Completely async work culture

We don't do daily standups. No weekly video calls or phone calls. No managerial check-ins. In fact, we don't even use Slack, so no green-bubble indicator to micro-oppress and monitor you. We use Twist to communicate and stay in touch, which is an email/chat/knowledge-base hybrid. It makes remote work much more enjoyable, and less invasive on your personal life.

How to apply?

If the above deion sounds like you, and you're eager to work with us on the future of privacy and encryption, send an email to jobs@standardnotes.orgwith a small intro, resume, any relevant online links, and your salary requirements.
