Connectly is an equal opportunity employer. We’re committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and supportive workplace that is distributed around the world.

We're a remote-first company, but due to the majority of the workforce being in the western hemisphere collaboration hours are generally within the Pacific Timezone working hours range (7 hours behind UTC). We allow you to work from anywhere in the world anytime you prefer, as long as you are able to at least some workdays overlap with 9am - 1pm Pacific time where we have scheduled team meetings and close collaboration hours. (location-specific legal requirements permitting).

We're looking to cultivate a highly creative, motivating, and collaborative environment as we aim to move fast and build quickly. Talk to us if you are interested!
