Do you enjoy troubleshooting technical issues and are detail-oriented? Are you able to communicate technical information simply and easily to technical and non-technical customers?
If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!
At Files.com, we believe that providing great customer support is a matter of integrity.
We won’t feel good about the product we’ve built if customers can’t figure out how to use it, if it has incomplete documentation, or if bugs don’t get resolved.
So we invest heavily in our Customer Success team with the goal of being overstaffed so that our customers get the best experience possible.
Files.com is the new name for BrickFTP, a cloud storage service that has existed since 2009 and has over 1,700 paying business customers.
(We hope to be launching the new Files.com homepage within the next month.)
Our company consists of 18 (and growing to 35 by the end of 2019) full time USA-based remote employees who work from home.
Our products and services are used by over 2,000 enterprises and SMBs, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.
We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Growing
Our success comes from building a great service that solves problems for our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.
We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated people, and create an environment in which they thrive.
We Are A Remote Company
You will work from home and have some flexibility to choose your working hours, allowing you to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to you.

Every quarter, you’ll travel to an in-person meeting with the entire team to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we’ve been to Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.
We think that these in-person meetings are vital to the success of a remote team.

Our Core Beliefs
Here are just some of our Core Beliefs:
We believe that allowing and supporting 100% remote work gives us access to great people we wouldn’t otherwise be able to hire. We tend to hire folks who are later in their careers, which means they usually have their family established somewhere. By offering remote work, we can hire the best people, no matter where they’re located.
We believe that the best way we can acquire top talent is by being an amazing place to work. Work from home, travel with the team, and surround yourself with top tier people at Action Verb. Read about everything we’ve done to make working at Action Verb great.
