When creating a company account on Remote, the person who creates the account is automatically made the "company owner". When a new team member is added, they can be added either as a company admin or company viewer. This means that there are three types of user roles that are possible: company owner, company admin, and company viewer. You can have multiple company admins and viewers but there can be only one company owner.

Types of Assignments
On Remote, we have two types of assignments that a company user can be linked to. It is not compulsory for every company user to have an assignment. When a company user (owner, admin, viewer, people manager or onboarding manager) is linked to an assignment, it doesn't replace their existing permissions. For example, when a company admin is also made a billing contact, the person maintains their admin permission.
- Authorized Representative: The person with written authorization to sign legal agreements on behalf of the company including the Master Service Agreement (MSA). There can be only one authorized representative. When an authorized representative is added to Remote, they are automatically made a company admin.
- Billing Contact: The person responsible for all billing-related topics such as invoices, payments. I can assign the billing contact to more than one user. This person will also receive an email notification when a new invoice is uploaded.
