Having worked for companies like Google and Facebook before, I can tell you that Action Verb and Files.com has lots to offer. I have learned a ton over the last 8 months. As a team member you can ship innovative solutions, work on solving complex problems, and continue to learn from talented individuals. Furthermore, I believe it is rather rare for a company our size to be profitable, founder owned, and fully remote.— Current Files.com Employee
