A different kind of company

One of the most influential small tech companies ever

We started out as Fog Creek Software, a pioneering independent tech company that has always put people first.

Our team invented Trello, co-created Stack Overflow, and launched many other groundbreaking apps that collectively have made us one of the most influential small tech companies ever.

Built for sustainability

We care about making Glitch a meaningful platform for the long term. Our company is 20 years old—that’s ancient in internet terms. We’re independent, privately held, and transparent and open in our business model and processes.

This matters because we want you to be as invested in our long-term, sustainable success as we are.

Made in NYC, and around the world

We’re proud to be headquartered in New York City, but about half of our employees are remote.

We have a strong remote work culture where all of our meetings are online and apps and tools like Slack and Google Hangouts are the normal way we communicate.

A considered work environment

We pioneered remote-working and private offices for creative workers over a decade ago.

Our work environment has been carefully and thoughtfully designed to give each person both private and collaborative workspaces.

Our inclusion efforts aren’t just platitudes

Like most tech companies that have been around for two decades, we used to be a really homogenous place. Unlike most tech companies, we admit that we screwed up and we’re not making any excuses for it. Instead, we’re making real changes to build a more inclusive culture.

It starts from the top—we have a CEO who’s a vocal advocate for underrepresented workers in tech, and we’ve changed everything from our recruiting and ally skills training to the way we design our products, all with a goal of ensuring we’re a place that’s welcoming and supportive to everyone.

We are on the inside what we hope to inspire on the outside

It’s impossible to trust a company if you know they don’t practice what they preach.

That’s why we’re committed to zero gaps between our stated and lived values. And that’s also why our values are publicly stated for anyone to read and share and remix for their own use.

We’ve built a social platform on the internet that will never tolerate hate speech

This isn’t actually complicated.

Join our board

We're making an open call for a board member for Glitch. Learn more about the process.

What’s expected of a board member at Glitch?

In addition to the expectations and duties of any board member at a private company, Glitch has quarterly board meetings we’d expect you to attend at HQ in NYC. Don’t worry, these are scheduled far in advance and we’ll help you with any travel arrangements you need. If you’re looking for a primer on board duties, we think the first five pages here are helpful and succinct.

How will this person be compensated?

Glitch began publishing salary ranges with every job listing over a year ago because we feel it’s important for folks to know up front and take away arguably the most stressful part of a job search. Though the open board seat is certainly not a full time gig (we would anticipate a couple of hours a month), the same intent applies.

As a member of our board you’ll be compensated with substantial equity in Glitch, Inc. on a generous vesting schedule. We’ll also ask that you attend quarterly meetings in NYC, and if you’re not based in NYC we’ll pay for all travel expenses and lodging so that you can attend in person.
