A note on hiring during the COVID-19 pandemic 
Due to regulations in Philadelphia and our concern for the health and safety of our team, we will be conducting all interviews remotely for the foreseeable future. The majority of our colleagues generally work out of our Philadelphia office, but we have transitioned the entire company to remote work. If the office remains closed at the time of hiring, we have made arrangements for remote on-boarding, including shipping relevant materials and a laptop to your home. We are fortunate to have invested in meaningful work-from-home tools and processes over the years, and have been able to continue providing a secure, flexible, and safe work environment for all of our colleagues. When the stay-at-home orders are lifted, we will reopen our office, and we expect that this position will require working from the office 1-2 days per week.

Our Philadelphia headquarters is located in a brightly lit office on the 5th floor of a converted factory building in the Callowhill neighborhood, a short walk from Center City, the Reading Terminal Market, and SEPTA subway and regional rail stations. For bicyclists, we have in-house bike parking, showers, and lockers. The office itself is assembled as an open office plan with several smaller rooms for team meetings and concentration time.  
We offer pay commensurate with skills and experience. As a part-time position, our benefits package includes: 
- Retirement plan with matching percentage
- Paid sick leave
- Family and medical leave
- Flexible work schedule
- Paid maternity and paternity leave
- Paid time off for voting
