Our success depends on hiring the best engineers and then keeping them.
So, we’ve worked really hard to make Action Verb an ideal place to work.
At Action Verb, we practice Holacracy, which means that you don’t have a boss. Your work is executed autonomously, without micromanagement.
But Holacracy is not unstructured: you’ll have a clear understanding of your current roles and responsibilities, as well as a set of rules and processes for changing those roles and responsibilities in real time.
Even though Holacracy is a lot to learn, we have a great onboarding process and the rest of our team will guide you through your first few months. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a weeklong official Holacracy training event at our expense.
We require a unianimous agreement from all current team members before making a new hire. You should feel excited about the caliber of people you’ll be working with.
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.
Every team member gets 10 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 paid time off days intended to be used for vacations. Go have fun. Don’t work all the time.
But in the time that they are in and working, our team members work hard and accomplish a ton for the company. And our team members typically do everything they can to ensure that they hours they work are in line with the company’s needs.
We pay a starting salary of $60-70k for Support/Sales Engineers and $100k for Designers or Systems Engineers. If you currently make more than that, we are usually able to match your current salary.
After your first year with Action Verb, we will update your salary based on the value that you have been able to demonstrate for the company. We continue to update salary levels every year. It is possible to reach a pay level of double the starting salary if you come in and absolutely crush it.
We also offer an annual bonus depending on performance and a signing bonus of $2,500 for you to use to purchase a new computer.
We fully pay for your health insurance (exact plan details depend on your state of residence), and we’ll pick up the tab for 50% of your spouse or family if they wish to also join the healthcare plan. We want your family to be healthy.
Our benefits are provided through TriNet, a company who represents over 100,000 worksite employees and negotiates on our behalf with the insurance carriers to get you the best rates and widest coverage options. If you don’t like the specific healthcare plan we provide for your state, you can upgrade or downgrade to a different plan via TriNet’s portal.
We expect to add 401(k) and employee stock ownership options in the future.
Our team spends at least 12 days together face-to-face per year at four quarterly meetings that are hosted all over the country.
We try to do these meetings 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 Detroit.
