As an early stage company, we tend to be pretty "all hands on deck" when something comes up that we need to get done\n\n# Pay and benefits\n\n- This is a fully remote, full time (40 hours per week) position. You can choose your own hours as long as you have at least 4 hours of overlap with London (from 8am - 6pm)\n- The salary is £50,000 - £60,000 (GBP) per year\n- We'll buy you a new Macbook Pro and any other tools you need to do your best work\n- 30 days of holiday a year (including local national holidays), and you're encouraged to take all of it. You're also free to take additional time off for any other reasonable reasons, for example if you're sick (of course!) but also if you need to spend an afternoon taking care of something personal.\n- Sustainable and healthy working matters to us. We care about building delightful products for our customers, not hitting arbitrary daily hour counts.\n- We are a UK based company, so if you are also based on the UK we will hire you as a full time employee.\nIf you are not based in the UK, then this position will be permanent and full time in spirit, but a contract role on paper. The reason for this is that employment outside of the UK comes with significant challenges for a small company like ours. In that case, this means that this role doesn't include certain benefits like a retirement plan/pension.\n\n# About us\n\nWe are a fairly early stage company! Currently there are two of us working on Simple Poll full time:\n\n- Charles (who is in charge of Sales, Marketing, Business Development, and Compliance)\n- Wilhelm (me!

Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful!
