About the team

Edge & Node is a globally distributed team. We work hard, but our remote-first team affords a high degree of autonomy and flexibility. Our few scheduled meetings tend to be in the morning, pacific standard time (PST). We’re mission-oriented and hold one another accountable with results rather than vanity metrics like time spent at your desk.

You can expect quarterly off-sites in different parts of the world, where we strategize as a team, brainstorm around a whiteboard, go on team outings, have spirited and varied conversations over wine, coffee, or kombucha, and get to know each other on a personal level. In addition to off-sites, you’ll have the option to travel to conferences and meetups worldwide, where you’ll get to know individual teammates on a more personal level and build relationships with our users and community.

We value diversity and bringing your whole self to work, including your weird hobbies, unique life experiences, cultural traditions, obscure music tastes, and whatever else makes you you.
