About Working at RG Nets

Read this and understand before you even look at the job descriptions, this is important and different.

  • RG Nets is a very small company and it is run by crazy people… arguably it’s really the leader who is truly insane, but in any case… it shows… in everything we do.
  • We have a short meeting in the morning every weekday … which we start by doing 30 push-ups while holding planks between them for 3 minutes and 30 seconds to the Moby track Flower (some call this the “Bring Sally Up Challenge”) … and yes, you did read that right, we do that every before every meeting.
  • Our corporate meetings are usually held at race tracks and often involve riding motorcycles at 150 MPH. Our corporate training events usually involve copious amounts of alcohol and firearms. This is not a joke, nor is it intended “to try make us sound like badasses.” We actually enjoy what we do and we believe that it helps promote the creative process and the business as a whole. Photographic evidence can be found on social media.
  • The rXg runs premier sites worldwide… including the busiest airports in the world, stadiums where teams you’ve heard of (and are on prime time OTA TV) play, piles of hotels and time shares in beautiful and exotic locations … and as an employee you can volunteer to help with these installs. The selfies you will take while doing this are priceless.
  • RG Nets is a high intensity environment and a meritocracy. We pay market rates to start. If you deserve a raise because you exceed our very high expectations, you will get it, on the spot. People who have worked with us for a while make far higher than market rates.
  • There are some people who enjoy disparaging us. Some of these folks are quite vocal and spew their crap all over the Internet as well as in person. We don’t care. We’ve been busy making a magnificent product and running a profitable company (no external investors) for the past 15 consecutive years. We are busy changing the world, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. We are looking for people who are thick skinned and like minded.
  • RG Nets has been a fully remote work environment for all employees since its inception. Other people are trying to figure out remote work. We’ve had it figured out for over a decade. People work when they can. People take off when they want to. We all get what we need to get done, that’s all that matters.
  • You probably ought to read-up about RG Nets before you apply, because if you do apply, you may get a call within a few minutes, yes even on a weekend or late at night… because we are always working. If we call you then you should be ready to have in depth discussions about what we do immediately.
  • You will be required to  write a cover letter and share your github to demonstrate your skill.  If you just push a button to say you are interested, it’s highly unlikely that your application will be considered. Tell us why you want to work with us.
