      What we look for:
      We're building a company from the ground up, so every single person we hire has a massive impact on our team, culture, and ability to accomplish our mission. While each individual brings their own unique skills and perspectives to Formic, we look for people who share our vision and act in alignment with our . If this sounds like you, Formic could be the place for you:

      • Fearless Optimism: You share our ambitious vision of what we can accomplish. You're aware of the challenges we will face as a startup doing new things in an old space, but you're energized by the incredible opportunity we have to drive change for our customers, and for the manufacturing industry at large.
      • Factories First: You have a strong customer focus, no matter who your customer is. You seek to make things easier and better for our customers, even if it makes your job a little harder.
      • Today, Not Tomorrow:There are always plenty of projects to tackle in a startup, but you prioritize, take accountability for work, and have a bias toward action.
      • Be Right Often:You don't do things just because that's how they've always been done. You keep looking for ways to improve, seek out feedback along the way, and back your decisions up with data.
      • Made of Rubber: Just like rubber, when you fall you bounce back up. You know there's going to be a lot of challenge and change in our work ahead but you are adaptable, resilient, and ready to thrive through it all.
      • Good Baton Passes: You work with a desire to make things easier and better for your team members. You use empathy to understand the needs and goals of others and support each other so Formic can be successful together.

        Total Rewards:
        Total rewards packages at Formic consist of salaries benchmarked against similar stage growth companies, insurance (medical, dental, vision, life, STD, LTD), and equity in Formic itself. As an early stage startup, equity is an important part of our investment in you, and your investment in Formic. When Formic succeeds, we all succeed.
        Final offer amounts are custom-crafted, based on the cash/equity ratio preference of the candidate, as well as their experience, geographical location and cost of labor, and more, and may vary from the range listed below. Ultimately we're seeking top performers who will make a difference to our business, and we're open to negotiating the compensation structure for the right candidate.
