  • Personal and Professional Development: We have a work culture that focuses on continuous improvement. From the day you join our team, we offer a development program to enhance your skills and abilities.

After officially starting to work together, you will undergo a training process that typically lasts for 1-4 weeks. During this period, you will complete your training by following the videos and written materials we have prepared specifically for your position. During your training, we will conduct 2-4 question-and-answer sessions to address any inquiries or clarifications you may have. During your first 2 months, you will be on a probationary period. In this period, we will work together to create a working schedule that allows you to adapt to your new role seamlessly. We conduct periodic evaluation meetings to assess your progress and performance. After the second month and depending on your progress, we will fully transition the tasks and responsibilities of your position to you.

In our remote work model, you can work from anywhere you choose, as long as you can provide the necessary working conditions (a distraction-free environment and a reliable internet connection). When you start working with us full-time, you will become an employee with benefits, not an independent contractor. We work from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM on weekdays. We dedicate weekends to ourselves and our loved ones by not working during that time.
