Our leadership takes responsibility for creating a safe and welcoming environment built on inclusion and respect for all (our full DEI statement is here). Read more about what our employees have to say on our JobSage pagewhere we were also featured as one of Austin's most transparent companies in 2022.
CareerPlug made the decision to be a Remote First company, forever, in the summer of 2020 after working remotely for months because of COVID-19. We know the heart of our business is wherever our employees work--from our space in Austin, to a home office on Lake Michigan, to an outfitted van exploring the American West (true story!).

“My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.”
We have a fierce commitment to living out our core values at CareerPlug. It’s what shapes our culture and community, and shows up in a resolve to be inclusive, and therefore, anti-racist.
We know that racism can be intentional or unintentional, but its existence is dehumanizing to everyone it touches. Our promise is to purposefully identify, discuss, and challenge issues of systemic racism and unconscious bias and the impacts they have on our company and our people. We’ve always fostered a culture of communicating openly, but we know we can continue to do better. We will challenge ourselves to understand and correct inequities and create a “best place to work” for every employee.
We choose to participate in this conversation and affirm our identity as an anti-racist company. We hope you will join us.
