They’re a very international team, with your future coworkers being based in 4 different countries across Europe and Asia. However, due to the asynchronous nature of working that Goodnotes has adopted, any time difference will not impact your work-life balance. During the natural overlap of hours within the team, you will have daily standups to coordinate between designers, front-end engineers, back-end engineers and QAs to review any blockers.
