Job Designation

Remote - This position has been designated Remote, meaning this role may require the employee to live and work in another location in the U.S. or abroad. An example of required remote work would be the regional leads for our Education and International teams. Jobs that can be done anywhere, may also be designated by Senior Team leads as remote. These roles will be primarily autonomous, mobile (i.e., require traveling to various locations or the field) or virtual. These jobs’ major constituencies may be at another or many locations (as opposed to at Base Camp). No remote employees can have designated desk space at Base Camp. It is important to note that the “remote” work designation is based on the job description and not manager or employee preference.

W e encourage you to apply even if your experience is not a 100% match with the position. We are looking for someone with relevant skills and experience, not a checklist that exactly matches the job description. We want to help you grow and in return, you help us grow into a stronger, more inclusive organization.
