About the Company

Netlify is a platform for developers to build, deploy, and manage modern web projects. Basically, it's an easy to use backend for your static website. 

We aim to perfect a unified platform that automates code; creating highly-performant sites and web-apps. Users should be able to simply push their code and let us take care of the rest.

We have been building Netlify since 2015. About half of our 30+ member team works remotely, and we are serving over 280,000 developers who use Netlify around the globe.

Though our team is growing fast, we’ve managed to stay tight-knit while welcoming newcomers to the fold. We hail from around the globe with diverse backgrounds, and we strive to be thoughtful, caring, and collaborative in our work within and across teams. To learn more about our team and who we are click here.

We’ll be giving you the tools you need to succeed and looking to you for suggestions for improvement—not just in your daily job, but in many other aspects of building a company. We don’t want you to work too hard (burnout is real), but we also want to encourage you to grow (impostor syndrome is also real)—and we’ll help you do that!
