As stewards of the Polkadot and Substrate ecosystem, Parity is laying the foundation for a better web which respects the freedom and data of individuals and empowers developers to create better services through decentralised technology. The internet is too important to billions of people for it to be at the mercy of a few powerful companies. 

Like Polkadot, Parity was built on a foundation of being decentralised and open, which trickles down to how we work. We’re a distributed organisation and have been from the beginning. Being distributed isn’t just a way of doing business—it’s a mentality that is at the core of our culture. We have a flat structure that pushes power to the edges and empowers our people to take ownership of their role, authority coupled with responsibilities.

About the team:

The web team at Parity is responsible for all the official public facing websites that showcase the Polkadot brand and sub-brands. We work hard to ensure that we follow best practices and uphold high standards when it comes to web accessibility, speed, and quality content. If you think you can help us produce award winning web work then we would love to hear from you.
