Location & TimezoneNomad friendly
Our team collectively works across 15 timezones. Some positions require working within specific timezone ranges and others don't.
CommunicationWe use Discourse to build Discourse
We use Discourse as our primary team coordination tool to build Discourse. Discourse excels at asynchronous, distributed teamwork, so we can keep interruptions like instant messaging, calls, and meetings to a minimum.
We also have a single weekly video call to catch up and stay connected, but we try to keep meetings and calls to an absolute minimum.
Preventing burnoutFlexible schedules & sane expectations
We encourage all of our team members to take both short and long breaks from the keyboard. This means simple daily breaks for stretching and getting fresh air and also longer breaks for things vacations.
Welcoming in a new born to your family? Don't let work add to your stress! We have a super generous parental leave policy.
GatheringsYearly world meetup
As a remote team we don’t see each other much, so we come together in an all-expenses-paid week once every year, in a host city represented by someone that works at Discourse. So far we’ve been to San Francisco, Toronto, Sydney, France, India, Singapore, and Montréal!
