We work thoughtfully

We put a lot of care into how we work, and build Slite to enable:

Written culture

Writing long form allows us to drive thoughtful discussions around key topics. Documenting our work helps us reduce meetings and create our team's collective memory.

Transparency

Our work is shared and open by default in Slite. It makes each of us more autonomous, and removes frictions that come with remote collaboration.

Async work, with real interactions

Working async provides us with more flexibility, and makes everyone owner of their time and work.

Still, we are humans at work. We believe in real life interactions, 1:1 video calls, ideation meetings are all crucial to building trusting, long lasting relationships.

Remote work

We started Slite remotely in 2017 and never looked back.

It works thanks to our strong written culture and our regular cadence of in-person meetings, about every two to four months.

Benefits of working at Slite

🙌
Great remote habits
Started in remote, selling to remote teams, we strive to be an example of great remote habits. You won't find endless stand-up and hours long meetings here. We work async and socialize in sync.
🖇
Your work set up is covered
Working from home, we take care of your chair, monitor, desk and other appliances. More of a co-working person? Pick yours! Want both? No problem.
🧘
Vacation time
We know the positive impact of good holidays in remote. All employees across the world have 35 days off, plus your local bank holidays.
🎈
We see each other 3+ times a year
Some see remote as a cold way of working. Not us. We foster strong human relationships through weekly rituals and gathering at least three times a year. Offslites allow everyone to gain ownership on what's next and build stronger human connection.
🍩
Compensation
Like any startup we'll say we offer competitive compensations. This is how we do it: we built our salary model based on location, to always be in the top 25% offers of the local tech market. Our employees should feel at ease and rewarded.
🍼
Got kids?
So does 30% of the team. We're used to it. Remote gives parents work flexibly, so they can combine great family life with ambitious work.
📚
Buy any book
Are you the type of person who's always learning? We'll give you a card to expense all the books you need. Enjoy!
