Working At Action Verb

Our Philosophy

Organizational success depends on hiring the best people and then keeping them. So, we've worked really hard to make Action Verb an ideal place to work. You can expect the following:

Modern Management Structure, inspired by Holacracy, Google, Zingerman's and Others

We run Action Verb using "avOS", a unique modern management, authority, and planning system developed by Action Verb's Founder. avOS merges the best features of Holacracy, the Management techniques from Google, and more.

As an Employee at Action Verb, you'll have a list of very specific roles, authority, accountability, and responsibilities, as well as a way for you to evolve and changing those roles and responsibilities in real time.

You'll get to participate in an in-person onboarding process and receive a lot of team support over your first few months.

Top-Tier Talent

We require a unanimous agreement from all team members before making a new hire. You should feel excited about the caliber of people you'll be working with.

Work-Life Balance

Our team members work from home and choose their own hours, allowing them to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to them. Everyone gets 10 company-wide holidays per year and 20 paid time off days intended for vacations. Go have fun. Don't work all the time.

In the time they are working, our team accomplishes a ton for the company. And they typically do everything they can to ensure the hours they work are in line with the company's needs.

Pay

We pay comptitive salaries. Check out any job opening and you will see our commitment to transparency by listing the minimum salary you can expect to be paid for that role.

After your first year with Action Verb, we'll update your salary annually based on your performance, as reviewed by your peers. Over the course of your career at Action Verb, your salary can grow by 2-3x if you are one of our highest performers.

We also provide signing bonus of $2,500 for you to purchase a new computer, desk, or anything else that would help build or refresh your home office. You'll be spending your days there, so we want you to love it.

Benefits

We fully pay base plan health insurance premiums (exact plan details depend on your state of residence), and we'll pick up the tab for 75% of your spouse or family if they wish to join your chosen plan. We want your family to be healthy.

Our benefits are currently provided through TriNet, which represents over 100,000 worksite employees and negotiates with insurance carriers on our behalf to get you the best rates and widest coverage options. If you don't like the specific healthcare plan we cover for your state, you can upgrade or downgrade to a different plan via TriNet's portal. We are currently in negotiations with carriers to bring this relationship direct and we promise that we will make that upcoming transition a smooth one.

We provide a company 401(k) plan (no match) and plan to add employee stock options in the future.

In-Person Meetings and Travel

Our team spends at least 12 days together each year at four quarterly meetings that are hosted all over the country. We try to do these gatherings in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we've been to Austin, Orlando, Minneapolis, San Diego, Las Vegas, New York City, and Chicago.

Quitting Bonus

We get it. Action Verb is unique. Some might even say weird. Working remote is hard. We love these things about our culture, but you might not be sure if you do. Or maybe you just don't trust that we really do embody the core beliefs on this webpage. To our prospects who may be on the fence about joining Action Verb, we want to make one more offer to push you over the edge and convince you to join us.

If you don't like working at Action Verb for any reason, quit within the first 90 days and receive a $7,500 quitting bonus. That should be enough to keep you and your family afloat while you decide on your next path. We hope you won't take us up on the offer, but we want you to feel good knowing that it's there.
