INTERJECT is More than a Job
It's a Home of Possibilities
Here’s the Story…We welcome virtually anyone at Interject, but not everyone is Interject stuff. We’re ambitious, maybe a little crazy. Our goal is to improve how the world works with data, and that means everyone, from data engineers to business analysts, scientists to CPAs. We’re not messing around. So we’re building a team of equally ambitious world-changers, those with a zeal for data and the experience to back it up, with integrity and initiative, discipline and compassion. The pioneers. The top candidates tend to be compelled by the challenges involved in startups, and the opportunities that follow. If the things below speak to you, if they sound like your manifesto, then you’re the stuff of Interject.
Who Is Interject?
- Well, we’re a startup in Vancouver, WA. We hail from the front lines of business and data science, and we’ve grown to 2M in revenue from consulting and services. Now we’re on the path to productization.
- Our product is positioned to reframe how business users, data scientists, and data engineers work and interface with data. We have a growing portfolio of intellectual property backed by huge ideas, which are the keys to our momentum.
- We believe that we’re changing the world by providing a faster, more nimble data platform, one that joins business and data professionals to get quicker results.
- We’re pre-Series A funding, and all of our 20+ team members have stock options. Big comp plans take a back seat to culture here, but the future is bright for those who join early. Top leadership spots are up for grabs, if you have the stuff.
- We work toward perfecting a balance between working remotely, collaborating, and weaving life with work to experience all sources of inspiration.
- A practice of continual learning roots our culture in progress. We’re never satisfied and see mentoring our tech community and our team as top priorities. We have all the room for big hearts but none for big egos.
- We see you as the expert, and so we want to learn from, not manage, you.

WORK WHEREVER DAYS
Collaboration is what we are about, but we all still need our space to focus. For most positions, skip the commute 3 days a week and stay focused at home or at your local coffee shop.
We are looking ahead. More times than not, we are trying something new to the benefit of our clients and our growth.
We only bring on positive and helpful people that add to our culture. The journey is as important as the destination, so it’s important to team up with people that bring out the best in you.
Our paid time off policy fair and simple: work here longer, get more days off. We like to reward longevity and commitment and ensure our team has a positive work/life balance.
Holidays are fun, and we love them, that’s why we observe all official US holidays and give you time off when they occur. Don’t spend them working, go out and have fun.
We believe medical-care is a human right. This is why we have a great medical benefits program aimed to keep you in tip-top shape. The health of you and your family is important to us.
Suits are uncomfortable and rarely needed. We encourage you to wear whatever is comfy, just as long as it’s appropriate and in good taste. So go ahead, wear a t-shirt and jeans if you’d like. Just keep it clean.
In order to keep our company a well-oiled machine we need to invest in quality tools. If there is a great reason to have it, there is a great chance we will buy it.
Snacks, Drinks & Lunch
Leave your quarters at home. We do our best to keep things stocked so you can drink and snack as you create your masterpieces at work. And lunch normally finds its way to our office once a week so we can share a meal.
FUN HAPPENS TOO
We work hard at what we do and so time to play is OK too. Xbox, ping-pong or whatever may be next is here to stay.
