We’re Circle In

Having a career and being a parent are not mutually exclusive. Working parents make up a large portion of today’s workforce globally. Governments and organizations have played a crucial role in putting policies in place but we wanted to look beyond that. Our aim is to build a better world for working families by providing the support they need for their everyday juggle.

We empower our product teams to solve hard problems – customer problems and business problems – in ways that our customers love, yet work for our business. Our product team is cross-functional and durable, composed of a product manager, a product designer, a tech lead, and several engineers.

We staff our product teams with the skills necessary to come up with effective solutions that are valuable (our customers choose to buy or use), viable (the solution works within the many constraints of the business), usable (the user can figure out how to use) and feasible (our engineers have the skills and technology to implement).

Diverse Perspectives

We know that innovation thrives on product teams where diverse points of view come together to solve hard problems in ways that are just now possible.  As such, we explicitly seek people that bring diverse life experiences, diverse educational backgrounds, diverse cultures, and diverse work experiences.  Please be prepared to share with us how your perspective will bring something unique and valuable to our product teams.
