# Our Mission 🎯 At shuttle, we’re on a mission to revolutionise developer experience for building web apps. Everything we do is about crafting an exceptionally simple, satisfying and effective way to do cloud development. We are open source community-driven and loved by thousands of engineers. Our vision: the ultimate platform to supercharge developers’ productivity. # About shuttle 🚀 We are building the fastest backend development experience. [shuttle](https://shuttle.rs/) is an open source cloud platform for developing and deploying apps with zero infra hassle. We are replacing container technology, that almost every other cloud platform relies on, with something more lightweight and simple, resulting in the fastest deploy times ever. We are talking tens of minutes down to milliseconds. This is a game changer for developer productivity - cutting down those development cycles once and for all. We have thousands of developers in our community incl. engineers from some of the top companies and are about to launch shuttle beta. We’re backed by some of the best investors in the world, including Y Combinator, HorizonVC, Abstraction Capital, Global Founders Capital, Founders of Segment, Sendbird, Head of Product at DataDog and other successful founders and executives. # Working With Us 😎 We’re a growth mindset company.

We keep a light and fun work environment, without unnecessary stress or anxiety. Yet we hold ourselves to very high standards and keep pushing the bar up. Continuous improvement is a must if you don’t want to be left behind. Mistakes are OK, not being willing to learn from them is not OK. Collaboration is at the core of what we do and we treat each other with respect and kindness - supportive, yet firm and ready to provide accountability where needed. We’re early stage so expect many opportunities to shape the company’s future. The best ideas win. We maintain a hacker mentality - no problem is unsolvable with the right mindset. As a team, we work on hard challenges under tight constraints and are constantly pushed out of our comfort zones - if reading this excites you, let’s talk. # Perks 🎁 - Fully remote, flexible working hours and workdays - Flexible holidays and paid time off - Mental and physical health stipend - Educational and self-development budget - Support for attending and presenting at relevant conferences - Health insurance - Awesome work-from-home setup & equipment - Regular company off-sites - Weekly remote-friendly socials (games and more)
