About Us

Join a High-Growth Venture

Private Alpha offers a dynamic and flexible work environment. Some of us come in during “regular” business hours, and some prefer to start later or earlier. Our employees have the freedom to work when it best suits them. We are a fully trust-based organization that does not track vacation time. We believe in ownership of work, personal responsibility, and the motivation of our people, which has proven to be a successful approach to leadership
