Why Work with Us (our mission)

We want to improve our corner of the world – and then, one day, the whole world. We work towards that by focusing on our values:

  • Knowledge and empathy lead to wisdom and freedom.
  • Individuals can become a cohesive, cooperative community where everyone benefits.

We run a small network of sites and blogs that support these values by providing readers with free, quality, well-researched, and factual information on various topics.

We encourage you to apply if this is the kind of team you want to work for and with.

Applicant FAQs:

When will I hear from a Protean Enterprises agent about my application?

We contact selected applicants to interview and/or join our sandbox fit-testing. We aim to connect with selected candidates for interviewing and/or sandbox fit-testing within 3 to 5 days of their application during open hiring periods.

For applicants not selected for interviewing and/or fit-testing, we aim to let you know ASAP. We cannot give individual feedback. It’s not feasible, realistic, or sustainable. (Yes, we’ve tried it before.)

It’s been 2 weeks, and I haven’t heard anything – what gives?

Our apology for that. Responding to every applicant is a new policy; we aren’t perfect. We’re working on it, so thank you for your patience.

Our general rule is that applicants who don’t hear from us within 2 weeks of an open hiring window have not been selected for interviewing and/or sandbox fit-testing.

Will you keep my application on file for future consideration?

We may keep qualified applications on file for consideration for 90 days. We may reach out to these applicants as we have openings on our team.

Is my application data safe?

We aim to keep personal data secure. We purge all applicant data from our database quarterly unless we have your written consent to keep it on file for longer.

Please see our privacy policy for information on how your application information is stored and kept secure.
