Commons questions

What time zones can my Diver work in?

Most of our Divers overlap with their clients for 5 hours during the day (what we call our sync time), and then there’s another 3-4 hours that’s asynchronous — meaning they can do focused work while you’re asleep.

What if I don’t think my Diver is working out?

This is a rare case, but if it does happen, we’ll work with you to evaluate what wasn’t working and then rematch you with another Diver, free of charge.

What kind of experience and education will my Diver have?

On average, our Divers have 5-10 years of professional experience. Many of our Divers are graduates and former employees from impressive institutions (i.e. University of London UK, University of Toronto, JPMorgan, E&Y, Uber Eats, and more)

How long is the contract?

We do rolling 3-month contracts at Oceans so any onboarding (or offboarding) is done smoothly.
