Work with us?

We want to make cool stuff, and every now and then, we need help. We’re a small, self-motivated group, all over the world. Be smart about this, if you require babysitting or micro-management, we probably won’t work well with you. If you can’t stay on top of your work, or available to chat, we probably won’t work well with you.

 

Be good at what you do. Know when you mess up. Have kindness towards others.
