Commons questions

Is my Oceans Diver a full time employee?

Nope, they work for Oceans — but spend all their time with you. You should treat them as if they were a full time, long-term member of your team.

What hours does my Diver work?

Most of our Divers overlap with their clients for 4-5 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. We can discuss a different overlap if required!

Is this month to month?

You'll start off with a 3 month trial commitment, because that's the amount of time it takes to begin seeing real value. After that, contracts move forward on a rolling, auto-renewal basis.

How many Divers can Oceans help me hire?

If there's a ceiling, we don't know about it! Oceans can help you scale to as many as you need. Some of our clients have built out full functions consisting of 10+ Divers.

How does Oceans guarantee candidate quality?

Oceans focuses on long-term matches with top quality talent. To do so, we only hire the best. Our candidates are vetted in a 6 stage interview process, followed by a skills and personality assessment, to ensure they are a great fit with you and your team.
