What You'll Do
Our Ideal Candidate
Compensation and Benefits
Column is built on the belief that important information should be accessible to the public. As such, we work hard to model this behavior for potential Columnists by including our base compensation in all job descriptions and making our full benefits accessible online.
Column is the first collaborative public notice platform helping publishers, governments and legal services work together to inform their communities. We are a remote-first public benefit corporation with an in-person headquarters in Miami, FL. To us, people are everything. Our current Columnists are wildly talented people from around the globe. We support and challenge each other. We address real problems that people face in their communities. We believe that we have the potential to be a generational company that will change the world as we know it. Will you join us?
There will be several rounds of interviews, including a final on-site round in Miami, FL (if you are comfortable and able to travel). You should expect to be asked about technical areas and people management, as well as a pair-coding session.
Column is a venture-backed civic technology start-up dedicated to improving the distribution of public information, starting with public notice. From 2010 to 2019, less than 1% of funding deals went to LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs. And more than 1/3 or LGBTQ+ founders choose to keep their sexual orientation hidden while fundraising.** To support LGBTQ inclusion, Column's Founder and CEO, Jake Seaton, as well as our Head of Product, Annie Shugart, host conversations where they offer tips about succeeding as an LGBTQ+ founder and/or leader.
