What’s Native’s approach to remote work?

Native is a remote-first company, with most roles, including this one, able to be fully remote within the United States. Some roles need to be in-person at Native’s Burlington, VT office and will be designated as such when that’s the case. 

What are Native’s return-to-office plans?

Native has an office space in Burlington, VT that is available to employees. Native will not be requiring employees to report to work in person, unless their specific role requires it and is designated as such. When possible, Native’s full team comes together in-person twice per year.

What’s the interview process like?

After submitting an application, if you’re selected to move forward, you will be contacted by our team for an interview. After your initial interview, you will meet one or two times with various members of the hiring team, and finally present a case study or hiring exercise to the hiring team.
