How we work
Freedom and flexibility
Spread across 17 time zones in dozens of countries, we sign into Slack and open up our work tools on the schedule that fits our lives best. We communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take ownership of our work. Just a few reasons why we’re recognized as one of the best remote-first companies to work for.
Learning on- and offline
You start your role with an immersive remote onboarding experience to learn about our product, culture, and business. Then meet your team to pick up new skills and tools. And the learning doesn’t stop there—ongoing feedback from your manager and peers is one of our five team values, and we continuously support your professional development.
Interesting problems to solve
Our product integrates 5000+ online tools to make it easy for anyone to connect apps and get more work done. Supporting and evolving our product is no easy task itself, though. Our "build the robot" value yields outsized results, and our all-hands support approach gives everyone insights into our users’ experience.
Camaraderie from afar
100% distributed doesn’t hold us back from building bonds—daily conversation in chat includes non-work topics like #fun-cooking and #fun-scifi, weekly posts to our company blog show off pictures of pets and hobbies, and twice-annually, we come together for an all-team retreat that includes activities like crafting, basketball, karaoke, and rock climbing. We make space for everyone’s flavor of fun.
The ultimate guide to remote work

One of the rarely talked about benefits of working in a remote team is that you have complete control over your workspace.

** While we support Zapiens around the world the best we can, healthcare plans are available in the UK, Canada, and United States. Retirement plans are currently available specifically in the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and United States. A regional benefits premium is added directly to the salary ranges for team members who are in countries where we do not have entities or provide company-sponsored benefits. When recommendations are made for base salary, the benefits premium has already been factored in.

**** Not all Carrot resources are available in all countries.
