Culture

We have been completely distributed since inception. Our team is currently 120+ core contributors strong, and welcomes a growing number of community members from all walks of life, scattered all around the globe. We care deeply about open source, and our organizational structure has minimal hierarchy and no fixed work hours. We believe in working with a high degree of autonomy while supporting the organization's priorities.

How we work

We are a team distributed across the world working remotely from all corners of the world. We work in small teams of 2-5 people with a very specific goal.
