Why Work at SEJ?

  • Full-Time Remote. You will be working from home in your pajamas, or whatever you want to wear.
  • We manage by execution or goals. So long as you get a lot of work done, we're happy campers.
  • Complete Work/Life Balance. If you're routinely working more than 45ish hours, you're gonna get a friendly talking-to. We want you to be operating at 100% capacity, which means that you need to rest.
  • You Can Be Yourself. You don't have to put on a fake, professional face. You can just be yourself.
  • Major Opportunities for Career Growth. We are not trying to just be a small business. We promote quickly once we identify talent. It doesn't matter what your credentials are - it matters what you get done.
  • Strongly Anti-BS. Anybody in the company can (and is expected to) tell the CEO when she is wrong. There are no bureaucratic or BS rules getting in the way of getting work done.
  • No Micro-Management. Once you're trained and have demonstrated you know your stuff, we are pretty hands-off. In fact, if you need external management to stay on-task and motivated, we probably aren't the place for you.
  • Supportive Environment. We don't operate via intense stress or unreasonable top-down deadlines. Everyone wants you to be successful - internal politics are at a minimum here.
  • No Toxic People Allowed. We try very hard to screen people to be the best culture fit for our team. Imagine working with people who want to see you succeed instead of tearing you down - how nice would that be?
  • We'll Invest in Your Training. We want you and everyone to get better constantly. You'll be learning new things all the time, and are strongly encouraged to invest time every day to learn new things, improve your system/work process, and just generally try to make your life easier.
