I was Good Monster's first full-time remote employee. I was really impressed (and still am) with John's ability to grow the company and team so quickly. In less than a year, we went from 0 to almost 20 remote employees plus freelancers. John has a knack for hiring the right people and identifying the talents that are the perfect fit for the team. He's created a team that is highly productive, goes above and beyond goals every month, and feels supported and encouraged to reach their highest potential. I love traveling and working at GM allows me to work from anywhere, doing what I love and spending more time with my family.

I'm one of the newest members of Good Monster and I'm so happy to be able to work with so many talented people around the world from the comfort of my home. This year has shown us that remote work has so much potential for growth, not only for this business, but for its employees as well. John is the reason our lives are connected and we have these amazing opportunities.

I've been at Good Monster for two years now, and working for a remote agency has REALLY improved my life overall! I am much happier being able to work on a schedule that is flexible. As the mother of a super busy two-year-old, it is so helpful to have a schedule that can fit around nap times and bedtimes. I'm so grateful John brought together this global team of kind, passionate and extremely talented people.The pace of growth we are seeing now at Good Monster is so exciting and I can't wait to continue to watch us grow and succeed!

John is an encourager and inspirer of good work. I really enjoy working with him. Good Monster is a company that invests in the development of its talents and is open and honest with its people and its projects. When I became a 'Monster', I found myself connecting with dedicated professionals who are proficient in all stages of the process of growing a digital brand.

John's recruiting for Good Monster is simple, effective, and with no BS. Period. He makes us feel part of the team from Day One, always recognizing our hard work and giving us the fuel to accomplish our goals as a team. I think, for sure, the best part of being a 'Monster' is being able to work remotely. To live in Brazil and work for a company in the US never even crossed my mind before. That "first contact" was a mind-blowing moment.
