Why Join Our Team?
If you’re committed to supporting science- and data-based, very high quality, culturally sensitive, and highly individualized intervention services for kids with disabilities, and you understand that doing all that depends on helping us support the healthcare professionals that work those children, then we’d love to chat with you.
Besides believing in the mission, we also think that we offer good compensation, that we operate in a values-driven way in all that we do, and that we’ve created a culture that we’re really proud of.
What’s the compensation like?
Yes, we cover all “the basics” of a good compensation package including things like:
Highly competitive salaries, our Business Manager will make between $28 and $33 dollars an hour
Really good benefits including gold-level medical coverage, health savings accounts, dental & vision benefits, and an employer-matched retirement plan (that means that we chip in money to help make sure you’re secure when you retire)
Generous paid time off that starts with at least two weeks paid time off each year and goes up to five weeks a year (and that’s not including the paid holidays each year, including flex holiday time so that you can celebrate whatever occasions feel good to you)
Additional money to help you care for the people you love. Through our Dependent Care Benefit, our employees receive up to $600.00 each month–that’s over $7,000 a year–in tax free money to help them take care of the people that depend on them like children and other dependent family members.
Ample technology to support you in your work. Sure, everyone gets a top-of-the line MacBook Air (you even get to pick the color). But in addition to that, we’ll make sure you have whatever other technology you might need to make your work as easy as we can make it.
Highly subsidized professional development opportunities that you pick for yourself and that can include everything from participating in professional conferences, to taking a class, to earning additional credentials or certifications, or something else that you’re interested in that we may not even have thought of.
But, in addition to those things, we also want to help you work in ways that really work for you and ways that respect all the other parts of your life and who you are. To help with that we offer things like:
Flexible work schedules
Would life work easier if you worked 4 days a week instead of 5? Fine. Let’s talk about it.
Would life work easier if you started work early and ended early each day? No problem.
Flexible work locations
Would you prefer not to come into the office and instead to do some of your work at home? No problem.
Would you prefer not to work at home and instead come into our offices? Again, no problem. We maintain a very comfortable office space where you can work at a table or sit by a fire. (And we have pretty good coffee, juices, soft drinks, and snacks)
Flexible work loads
Is something happening in your life that would be made easier by temporarily reducing how much you work? Okay. We’ll do our best to figure out (and, remember, we REALLY value ridiculously good problem solving, so chances are good we’ll be able to find a solution that works for everyone)
What do We Value?
Excellence, which for us means doing things really well, in the service of doing what’s best for people through ridiculously good, fast, and functional problem solving
Connectedness, Relationships & People as evidenced through building strong personal relationships, developing trust, knowing the people around us, and doing the work of the organization collaboratively
Making a Difference, which for us means doing good for our clients, our colleagues, and our communities, and taking data to make sure we know that what we’re doing is working
Diversity, in whatever way that shows up, by including, welcoming, and actively seeking out anyone who shares these values
What’s it like to work here?
It’s really good. And, our colleagues feel the same way. We recently asked members of our staff to write down the three words that came to mind when they thought about working at ORL. We’re very proud that our staff find ORL to be a supportive, progressive, caring, high quality, passionate, data-focused, and thoughtful place to work.
Again, we’re very proud of the culture we’ve created and we take very seriously the task of continuing to cultivate it by attracting, retaining, and partnering with incredibly skilled people all dedicated to achieving common good in sometimes uncommon ways.
And we know that to do that we have to continue to cultivate and maintain a culture of excellence, inclusion, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team of colleagues. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that our staff invest in the work we all do collectively not only represents part of our culture but also allows us the very things that let us serve our clients in the high quality and individualized ways that they deserve to be served.
In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that you can bring in terms of your education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and beliefs.
We’ve partnered with All Things HR, an external HR Consulting Company, to assist with our hiring process and we’ll be working closely with All Things HR to ensure that our hiring process is inclusive.
Why do we do all of this?
Our ability to serve our clients at the high level of quality we insist on, and to create a community of smart people with diverse perspectives and overlapping (but also differing) perspectives depends completely on our ability to maintain long employment relationships with a wide range of smart, dedicated, people who are happy doing what they do.
We look forward to getting the chance to know you a bit better. If you’d like to be a part of our dynamic company, please submit your cover letter and resume.
