Hey there 👋 My name is Dimitry and I’m the founder of Soar. We build productized marketing services at price points startups and creators can afford. We deliver our services in a streamlined way and believe in impacting as many startups and creators as possible using well defined and transparently priced and scoped services. The services we have are a combination of “agency” style services, like managed SEO, Reputation Management, and more productized and packaged up services like * Done for you viral posts on Reddit * Quora answers * Backlinks * Analytics tag installation * & more No matter the service, we try and keep the service experience transparent and fair to our customers. It’s a core tenet and a welcome relief for a lot of the people who come to us. We’ve been growing fast during Covid. Our specialization in Reddit combined with the growth of the creator economy has really pushed us up. Now we need to improve and expand the services we deliver. **The Role**That’s where you come in.

We’d like you to help us on this mission. Here are some of the core principles of working with our team **Work-life Balance & Flexible Hours ⏰**We are a remote-first company, we believe in focusing on working with the best talent no matter where you are located. We will make it work. We respect time zones and try our best to provide flexibility in your daily work life. **PTO & Holidays 🏖**We work hard to make sure that we create a balanced environment that helps you avoid burnouts. We encourage everyone to take at least 35 days off per year. Just make sure to notify your team beforehand so we can balance the workload of your fellow teammates. **Mental & Physical Strength fund 💪**We want our team to be healthy both physically and mentally so we are happy to reimburse you if you are going to a gym or take a meditation class - you pick! **Growth & Education Allowance 📚**We want to make sure that you have the ability to grow - maybe you want to take a Udemy course, pick up some Linkedin Learning, or participate in a webinar. We encourage our team to learn new skills and better existing ones. **Fringe Benefits**While a minor benefit, it is nice to be surprised sometimes. We try to wow you every year with a small token of appreciation - a logo t-shirt or paid lunch, event tickets, or small party - we try to figure something out regardless of being remote. **Wifi Coverage 📶**As a remote company, our “office” is highly dependent on Wifi. We are happy to help you cover this expense with up $50/month towards your Wifi bill. **Competitive Compensation**Even though we are a small company, we strive to be fair about compensation. We make sure that you can live comfortably on your salary, no matter where you are. It is not easy to benchmark salaries in a remote company where our people are located all over the world but we continuously work on and improve our approach. Things we take into account when calculating the compensation are global averages per skillset, your local cost of living, your skills and experience.
