We are an all-remote company, so we don't care where you live as long as you work well in a fast-paced, collaborative remote environment.
PerfectRec is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to finding the best candidates for every role and giving them the tools and guidance they need to succeed. Our all-remote structure enables us to recruit anywhere in the world, so our talent pool isn't limited to a few big cities, and our asynchronous structure allows our team to work when it's best for them. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
There are no open positions currently.
We believe in offering generous compensation and benefits tailored to our all-remote workplace.
Honesty isn't just the absence of lying; it's saying what you actually think. If an idea is bad, we say so. If we aren't certain about something, we don't pretend we are.
Solving hard problems requires raising issues, sharing evidence and thoroughly debating potential solutions. We believe respectful and constructive argument is part of the job.
We're curious about the world and skeptical of incumbents, gatekeepers and other defenders of the status quo.
We believe a fun workplace is one where people have fun working on hard problems together — not a place with semi-mandatory happy hours.
We're obsessive about learning everything we can and gathering as much relevant evidence as possible about the problems we're solving. We want to know what's wrong with everything, because that's the only way to solve everything.
Powerpoint and other presentation tools discourage actual thinking. We don't use them. Instead, we explain our assumptions and reasoning in writing, using shared documents to allow collaboration and asynchronous feedback.
We aim to build the best possible product recommendation service possible, period. We will never stop improving and our mission will never be complete.
We have a fairly unique company culture and we think it is important to share how we approach work with prospective employees. Hiring the right team is hard, and being upfront and explicit about how we think helps ensure a good mutual match.
Many workplaces are bad. We are committed to making ours good. That does not mean ping-pong tables or laundry service. That does mean a serious, deliberate approach to how we work together and solve problems. We want work to be fun, interesting, engaging, and collaborative. We are interested in efficiency but not hierarchy. We value competence over confidence. We celebrate skeptics and like people who like thinking. And we are highly supportive of everyone's personal and professional long-term goals.
A successful startup should be thoughtful and reasonable, but operate with a sense of urgency. Here are the basic principles that summarize our approach.
We are all-in on all-remote work.
Our founding team has been managing all-remote companies since long before Covid, and we've found that flexible, asynchronous work is the most efficient and humane way to operate.
At the same time, some real-time collaboration is essential. We aim to all generally be available for meetings Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pacific.
Good leadership is not an accident. Different companies have different leadership styles. Here are our principles.
What we do is important. So is what we don't do. Here are some practices we will not be adopting.
