We believe that empowered and engaged colleagues do their best work. We’ll be giving you the tools you need to succeed and looking to you for suggestions to improve not just in your daily job, but every aspect of building a company. As a distributed-first organization we want to make sure wherever our team is we find inventive ways to collaborate, debate, and learn from each other.

Distributed vs remote; recently we have intentionally pivoted away from the term remote. We feel the term distributed sums up where and how people do their best work here at Netlify. We feel, the term remote can create a sentiment of distance and limited access, while distributed creates a sense of togetherness though we may be distant from each other.
