Can I work remote?
The short answer is… absolutely! The slightly longer answer is that, we have a great group of people working in our Irvine, California office and we’d love to have you working here with us too. But, we know that great people are everywhere, so if that’s not possible for you, no sweat, we want to hear from you! If you are remote, we’d love to have you come visit us a few times a year, all expenses covered.
Build and support software that makes the world a little bit better by empowering thousands of people to help millions of people get a little bit better at… just about everything: We’ve built a product that people from all walks of life are using to teach just about anything you can imagine, from personal development, to personal finance and investing, to software development, to yoga, or floral arrangement and everything in between and beyond. Whatever your interests, there are likely at least a few customers who are sharing that kind of knowledge with the world, using Kajabi. If you care about teaching, sharing, and helping others, consider your work at Kajabi a force multiplier that will touch the lives of millions of people. You’ll learn a thing or two about what it takes to create, market, and sell digital products. You might even be inspired to make a course of your own—we’d love that!
Work with an incredible group of human beings: “It’s the people.” That’s what everyone seems to say when asked what they like most about working at Kajabi. It’s what candidates say when they come and visit the office and meet the team for the first time. We spend a major portion of our lives at work, so above all we try to be good humans, to each other and to our customers.
Take ownership over an area of our product and provide technical leadership to a cross-functional product team: We’ve divided responsibility for our app across several cross-functional teams consisting of about 3 to 5 people including a product designer, QA, front-end developer, and a few backend developers. You will bring your technical expertise and leadership working directly with the product designer to shape the roadmap for the area of the product your team owns.
Join us as we enter into a new season of growth: We’ve been bootstrapped, profitable, and proud since day one. We launched in 2010 with an incredibly successful product. In 2016, we launched the third ground-up rebuild of our core product, one that we plan to shape and grow for many years to come. We have a stable and mature application with thousands of customers that count on us to continuously improve and support each and every feature. We’ve been able to build a large and successful app with a tiny team, but in this new season, we’ve divided up our application into more focused areas of responsibility.
