This is a REMOTE position. With the freedom to work from home (or anywhere else), you also have to bring your own computer, and the position is constrained for someone working during the US Eastern Standard Time (EST) time zone.

Our values include "Determination, Effort, Perseverance," "Seek to understand," and "We're in it together." We're not afraid to fail because we are always learning, always improving. This website looks the way it is because the founder made it. And he still works a full-time corporate job and currently has $15,700 in student loans (accurate as of April 18th, 2021).
