Our Operating Principles

We are here to build the world’s leading platform for hourly workers and enterprises enabling flexibility, choice, and upward social mobility.

Execution is Binary

We #GetShiftDone. We take immense pride in both the quality of our work and our relentless determination to deliver on our commitments. If we say we are going to do something, we do it.

Missionaries, Not Mercenaries

We before me. We believe in our mission to build a better world for workers. We understand why our work matters and take seriously how it impacts our customers and our partners. This belief permeates everything we do from the strategic to the mundane.

Inputs > Outcomes

We work really hard. Fundamentally changing how labor works is not easy. It often requires long days, late nights, and weekends to deliver on our commitments. We lean into this challenge.

Honesty Over Harmony

We share the truth even when it is painful. We do not, however, share the truth callously to hurt people’s feelings or make them look bad. We also assume positive intent. If someone is not delivering in a way that we need, we ask them and tell them before assuming the worst.

Invent & Iterate

We are inventors @ heart. We categorically reject the phrase “that is how it’s always been done”, and constantly discover new and better ways to do more with less. This means we are resourceful and often do things that don’t scale, only to create ways to scale them later. We’re builders.

Our Culture

Behind every great vision, there is a powerful team.

Our opportunity is massive, and we work hard to #GetShiftDone. We are committed to hiring and retaining the best people, and we believe in growing together to bring our mission to life. We believe in and offer training and development through an apprenticeship model, working closely with our leadership team and our operators. 

We have a flagship office in Manhattan and a distributed team across North America. We offer meaningful equity, discretionary vacation and personal & family leave, and most importantly, the opportunity to work with a rapidly growing, early-stage startup.
