    Working for something that you truly love and believe in is incredibly rewarding. It's a new standard that's been made for me and I wouldn't want it any other way. Marco Polo makes it easy to love not only the product that we offer but also love the people that we get to work with.


    If remote work isn't for you, this would be a difficult job to do. But it's something I enjoy.

    Marco Polo

    Why is a paid Marco Polo project worth your time? Call it a chemistry check As part of the Marco Polo job interview process, we ask every candidate to participate in a sample project with members of their prospective team. It’s understandable that this step might give you pause. After all, you’ve earned your credentials and competition for tech talent is fierce, especially now. So why would we ask for more of your valuable time when so many other companies are knocking at your door? You’re human, we’re human, and authentic connection matters Asking you to collaborate on a project with us is actually not about having you prove your worth. It’s more about discovering how it would feel to work together. Is there chemistry between us? Would you enjoy your team? Would you have fun and be challenged? These are questions every job candidate deserves the opportunity to answer for themselves before accepting an offer.

    Marco Polo

    In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced businesses around the world to abruptly pivot to remote work. Many adjusted, but with costs, among them decreased engagement, loss of connection among coworkers, and loneliness. But having been fully distributed since the company set up shop in 2012, Marco Polo didn’t miss a beat. Even as we all navigated new routines, stopped working from our favorite coffee shops, cared for young kids suddenly home all day, and worried for loved ones, we maintained the cohesion and momentum necessary to successfully launch not one but two major products, Marco Polo Plus and Marco Polo Channels. “Our trust in each other sustained us and helped us grow stronger, making 2020 a year of unprecedented growth and increased connection,” Marco Polo CEO and Co-Founder Vlada Bortnik recalls in her end-of-year reflection. So what exactly makes “the remote thing” work so well for Marco Polo and by extension, nurture the company’s success? Check out our blog to learn what our team members had to say.
