Stand out from the competition 

We help you with the discovery part of finding dream jobs at dream companies. 

Some of the companies we share are still under-the-radar and have less applicants. Others with bigger budgets could be advertising on multiple job boards. It's not uncommon for some of those job ads to get thousands of applicants. 

So how do you stand out and get an interview? 

For one, follow Sahil's advice above. If you really want a dream job you need to invest more than other applicants. Use the product and send concrete/helpful suggestions to the founder via email or tweet.

Better yet, don't wait for roles to be advertised. If you really love what you read about a company's mission, values & benefits, then get on the front foot and reach out to the CEO anyway. 

Best case, you get a job from it. Worst case, you're going to be front of mind when they do ramp up hiring. 

We built a new home on the web 🔨

You can now discover new companies and read previous interviews/newsletters on our new homepage.

We are slowly and deliberately building our directory of dream companies who pass the "sniff test":  work from anywhere, async-first, no toxic meetings or endless phone calls, no bullshit.

We're gradually adding companies everyday. Reach out if you want to be included or have a recommendation for us.
Interview with Nash, Founder of Integry

  • Tell us about what you do and where your team is located.
    We're Integry, we help B2B SaaS company create, deploy and manage integrations for their users. These integrations can be rolled inside your app via our SDK or on a branded marketplace. Our integrations are designed to have great UI and UX to make sure your end-users are successful in setting them up. 

    We're a globally distributed company with folks in US, Germany, Pakistan and looking to add more countries to this list
     
  • What's a modern benefit you offer your team that isn't mainstream yet?
    Some of which come to mind:
  1. We like to say we're not just distributed in space but also in time, so you can work whenever you like to meet your agreed upon monthly objectives.
  2. We have unlimited, no-approval-needed paid vacations
  3. We provide up to 6 months of paid maternity leave 
  4. We also provide leaves in the unfortunate event a miscarriage
  5. We provide a home office renovation budget with an interior design specialist who works with your space 

Tell us about your approach to meetings vs async communication?
I like to joke that I'm on a mission to end communication, ha! Whenever I see someone ping on chat for something they can't find or something that isn't clear, I feel that's a failure mode and I'd rather most day-to-day communication not be needed. Of course, working with in your own team is different and that may require more higher bandwidth communication. But I'm willing to bet 80% of communication shouldn't take place if you've done a good job on creating a shared knowledge base. 

We default to writing things down in long form (please, no Slack for actual work, only logistics). Which is the opposite of how people usually work, the impulse is to shoot over a message. We place emphasis on self-service through our shared knowledge base and we rather that most discussion take place in-context such as design discussion on Figma, or policy discussion on the ClickUp, Coda, Notion, Google Doc etc. 

What's your favourite tool for remote collaboration?
We recently shifted to ClickUp because of its documentation+comment+task model. We look at documentations and the collaboration around it as serious work that requires serious tooling and ClickUp does a great job of making it easy to track comments on documents, as well as their status and open items.

Can you give us one prediction for the future of work?
I would love to see salaries not tied to your location. I get that you might be in San Francisco and I might be in Lahore, Pakistan but if we're both doing the same thing, why am I being penalized for my location? Hell, there's no Stanford or Google here, I might have struggled a lot more to learn the same things, if anything, I should be rewarded higher.  We're starting to approach "perfect markets" for compensation. If anyone can be hired from anywhere then competent people are going to command even higher salaries, bad employers will be dropped even faster.
