Get taken care of
Focus on making creators' lives easier. A competitive salary, meaningful equity in the company, great health benefits, and the opportunity to work with amazing people in a great environment lets you do that.
Right tools for the right job
You have the opportunity to research and pick the right technology for each problem that you solve. Currently, we use Ruby, Rails, Redis, Git, MySQL, AWS, Flight, LESS as well as our own open-sourced tools.
Work and life should play well together. Need a vacation? Take as much time off as you need. Or just wait for a team offsite to the wilderness, away from computers.
