Roles for Humans
Making cool stuff requires fantastic people. We’re a fun, 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 be available to chat, we probably won’t work well with you. Be good at what you do. Know when you mess up. Have kindness toward others.
We encourage diversity and welcome people from all walks of life. Puny Human denounces and abhors any company, organization or individual that shows prejudice based on geography, age, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, neuro-differences or neuro-diversities, religion, political leaning, or pizza topping preference (unless it’s pineapple.)
We tend to prefer candidates that are local to the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. However, we have hired employees across the United States of America, and engage with great people all across the globe.
