Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

As described above, the work in it self is permissible and the earnings from it is also permissible, as you are not directly linked to the sin. However, as a precaution it is best to avoid working for the company.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
