An overwhelming passion for addressing and solving the various crises brought on by climate change
Working in a capital R remote environment: We're Hawaii to Hong Kong. There is no home base. Calling a meeting is highly non-trivial. This usually means fantastic documentation, written communication with your teammates, and follow-through. It also means *some* morning/night meetings... a pure 10am-7pm startup schedule is not going to work unf. That said, we recognize that this is a marathon and we keep odd hours to a core minimum.
Be deeply respectful of your co-workers, all of whom come from very different backgrounds, and be highly proactive about resolving issues in an above-board manner. There is no [beer after work/in-person board game night/name your replacement] to smooth things over!
Look forward to hearing from you.
