powertofly approved What Avaaz Has to Offer:

They will respond quickly to your application if you're the right match... and...our very own cofounder, Milena Berry, was the CTO of Avaaz for seven years (lucky them!). Milena worked remotely for Avaaz (everyone at the company does) and managed to have three children all while running their tech team from where she was most productive.

Part of why we could launch PowerToFly was because Avaaz set up the inclusive workplace that allowed Milena to remain and grow while balancing the demands of motherhood. Milena now has a fourth child (Timo!) but he was born on PowerToFly time, so that's a different story... :)

All in all, Avaaz is a great example of a company that fully embraces work-from-home and remote roles that they fill with people from across the globe. They've grown their membership in the tens of millions thanks to their truly diverse team made up of some PowerToFly members!
