Work at SFG
We always need to replenish the team with people who love and know how to work like us. Our specific work does not involve long meetings or a long chain of decision-making, but should be transparent and understandable for all participants in the process. We do not have offices, and we do not have hourly or fixed wages.
How we are working?
The SFG team works exclusively remotely. We are dispersed in 5 cities of Ukraine. Most of the communication is correspondence or conversations in Slack and Telegram, live meetings are optional.
We document all projects in a Basecamp, in a short and simple form — one that will be understandable to current and new participants in the process.
We do not have a fixed monthly salary and we do not have hourly wages. We pay money only for the work performed — for the whole project or its milestones. Payments during the project are planned so that they do not occur less than once every 2 weeks. All these details are negotiated, agreed upon and fixed in the contract before the start of work.
Before you become part of the SFG team, we will do one or two projects with you — we will look at you in the work, and you at us. After that, we can provide you with as much work as you can handle.
Want to try?
Write a letter to hello@sfg.ua. Tell us who you are, where you worked, what you know and love, why you want to work with us. This should be a real letter — a short story about yourself, and not a dry listing of achievements and skills.
Attach your CV to the letter, for example, in PDF. We do not open links to resumes on job search websites.
Ask us any questions if you have. We answer all, without exception. Good luck!
