I’ve been inspired by the staff commitment and I get to meet diverse people from various backgrounds which has been very enriching for me.ANA PATRICIA CARDOZA, ENGAGEMENT TEAM LEAD (MEXICO)
When I joined ORCID five years ago (2015), I had no idea what an amazing journey I was about to experience and that I was going to learn way more than I expected. ORCID was one of the early pioneers of a completely virtual office, with staff all over the world. I’ve been inspired by the staff commitment and I get to meet diverse people from various backgrounds which has been very enriching for me. ORCID hires the best people from anywhere in the world. Working at a nonprofit organization makes me feel that my work really matters, and to be a part of something that profoundly impacts society makes me love my job! ~Ana Patricia Cardozo, Engagement Team Lead (Mexico)

Flexible schedule and remote work are a great combination and give us the opportunity of having a good balance of work and life.
