We believe that people who make great things should get paid for the value they give to the world. Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid for their work. We strive to provide creators with insight, education and tools that make it fast and easy to run their creative business, so that creators can focus on making art. And it’s working. Last year, we paid over $150 million directly to creators.
Patreon aspires to be among the tech industry’s most inclusive work environments. To learn how we're working towards this, please click here!
We make it easy to make Patreon better. We build fast and emphasize shipping. We continuously deploy to production. We support each other while fostering ownership. We work on projects we’re passionate about, fix problems as we see them, and collaborate with the rest of the company to ship amazing things.
We work hard to maintain a bottom-up decision-making culture. We believe that hiring smart, ambitious people, and giving them strong ownership of their work, with a clear vision and great tools, leads to the best results.
