Business Automation Engineer REMOTE

Published date Posted on Indeed on Nov 25, 2021 (7 d ago)

The Axelerant Business Automation Engineer is successful when people have more time for human relationships and minimize their administrative tasks. Therefore, your role is to challenge the status quo to get things done more efficiently and iterate current automation.

In the past year, over 150 automation scripts through Zapier, Integromat, Google, Slack, Jira, and many other platforms have arisen to provide engagement feedback, salary appraisals, share KPIs, process prospective team members, and much more. Each month, we handle over 100,000 automated tasks.

A great Business Automation Engineer reaches beyond asking people what they want, looking at what they’re doing, and their underlying intentions to develop a beautiful team member experience. And recognizing that sometimes, the best automation is none, and getting better might be burdensome.

This is a remote-based position, open for well-qualified people from anywhere. Travel may occur, though much of the work occurs from your remote office at home or wherever desired. Work is often done in small teams or independently and with minimal supervision in either situation. You’ll be jointly guided by our Digital Experiences and People Management teams.

Special Considerations:

All of Axelerant's roles are considered work from anywhere. However, some jobs are regionally specific due to sales or other onsite considerations. For example, when living in Costa Rica and applying for a US sales role, we will not consider you for that job opening.

Except for regionally specific jobs, like UK/US-based account executives or Canadian-based software contributors, our salaries are paid per India-based compensation plans.

Also, we typically expect people to have a two-to-four-hour crossover with the 11 AM to 7 PM India (UTC+05:30) timezone each workday for meetings and coaching.

Equal Employment Opportunity:

Axelerant provides equal employment opportunities to all applicants regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy, citizenship status, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected status and affirmatively seek to advance the principles of equal employment opportunity.

Remote & Flexible:

All you need is a reliable Internet connection. Work from anywhere you're comfortable and choose work hours to balance your life.

International Events:

We want you to attend events related to the things you care about. Get sponsored by us to attend when you're contributing locally and beyond.

Retreats & Meetups:

With annual retreats, quarterly town halls, and monthly celebrations, we never let remote get in the way of work or fun.

Leave Policy:

52 weekends and 35 days per year of consolidated leave plus maternity, paternity, and sabbatical allowances.
