The Fine Print

At Shrapnel we prefer working in-office, together. We believe working in the same space can accelerate progress, improve collaboration, and is definitely more fun. But in-office work doesn't make sense for everyone at this time, and technology makes certain remote work possible. So for certain roles we are open to discussing remote work. Please apply and we’ll decide case by case.

NEON Machine Inc and its subsidiaries are equal opportunity employers. Qualified candidates will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, mental or physical disability, and genetic information, marital status, citizenship status, military status, protected veteran status or any other category protected by law.

At Shrapnel we prefer working in-office, together. We believe working in the same space can accelerate progress, improve collaboration, and is definitely more fun. But in-office work doesn't make sense for everyone at this time, and technology makes certain remote work possible. So for certain roles and perfect candidates we are open to discussing remote work. Please apply and we’ll decide case by case. In all cases, though, you must be allowed to work in the US without a visa.

We’re following WA state’s health guidelines regarding COVID-19. We make every effort keep our office safe and our employees healthy. No one comes to work sick, not even a sniffle. Our office is big enough to stay 6-feet apart easily, but if you’re in a meeting where distance is not possible and you’re not vaccinated then we require a mask (vaccinated folks might want to wear one too, your choice). Hand sanitizer is always close by, and the nightly janitor crew sanitizes work surfaces for the next day. We believe in the benefits of vaccines, but don’t require it. For now, masks are required in the public areas of our building, whether vaccinated or not, but if you’re working alone in a room you don’t need to wear a mask.https://coronavirus.wa.gov/information-for/business/workplace-safety-guidance
