You are a strong leader and builder, have incredible drive and are naturally curious. You are especially good at detangling complex business goals and creating a team to achieve those goals. You take initiative, communicate well to drive your teams, drive projects independently, and report up clearly to the company executives.

About Omnipresent

Remote work is one of the great equalisers of our time, allowing people to secure employment opportunities from companies around the world, no matter where they were born or where they live.

At Omnipresent, we’re cutting this complexity and providing our clients, and their remote workers, with a simplified, cost effective and legally compliant employment experience. With a network of legal entities across the world, coupled with an automation-focused tech platform, we’re building the premier global employment-as-a-service offering on the market.
