Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model. Grammarly team members in this role must be based in the United States, and, depending on business needs, they must meet in person for collaboration weeks, traveling if necessary to the hub(s) where their team is based.
This flexible approach gives team members the best of both worlds: plenty of focus time along with in-person collaboration that fosters trust and unlocks creativity.
