We aspire to build the “devops operating system”: one integrated platform to orchestrate the delivery of applications to the cloud, from start to finish. We will accomplish this by giving devops enthusiasts what they want most: a programming environment which can encode their expertise into reusable software components, while remaining compatible with their existing tools. If we are successful, the devops community will enter a new golden age of explosive innovation and collaboration, with the Dagger platform and brand at its center.
We cover the cost of medical, dental and vision insurance premiums for you and your family.
We encourage professional development and growth. On a case-by-case basis, we offer funding for team members to pursue their professional goals.
We are a 100% remote-first company: we encourage asynchronous, written communication and autonomy.
5 weeks personal time off per year (PTO), we encourage everyone to take them.
We recognize your contributions to our company through your earned equity in the company.
We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, or veteran status.We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
As a team, our work is guided by the following principles:
We strive to communicate with each other, and with our community, in a way that is sincere, intentional and direct. This promotes a culture of trust, reflection and accountability.
We are responsible for each other’s well-being. We recognize that every interaction is an opportunity to help our teammates improve and achieve their goals. We cheer each other’s successes and offer comfort in difficult times. We are committed to maintaining solidarity with our teammates and community.\
The best teams, products, and businesses all have one thing in common: incremental improvement. Whether it’s fixing a small bug, improving the documentation, or making team communication a little more efficient; these details add up and make a huge difference in the long run.
Raising an issue is important but not enough. Leading the effort towards a solution is more useful. Doing is always more powerful than saying. Everyone in the team should feel empowered to take a new initiative that is aligned with our company goals and objectives. The best team members lead by example, do not wait for assignments, and help identify the highest priorities.\
We value each other’s insights, and take the time to listen. We empower each other to contribute anywhere in impactful ways - regardless of our title. This creates a culture of inclusion, belonging and well-being that is essential to doing our best work.
“Work-life balance” implies that work and life are interchangeable. They are not! We love our work, but acknowledge that it is just one part of our lives. We encourage you to organize your work around your life, not the other way around—while supporting each other in the process. Taking paid time off does not need to be justified, life happens. Dagger teammates understand this and have your back. It also means we must be proactive about our health and not hesitate to take sick days for anything health-related whenever needed.
Our partnership started with these words: “it should never feel like a job.” Over time we will experience successes and failures, competitors will come and go, the business and technology landscape will change, our strategy will evolve. Some days will be mundane, some full of excitement. But through it all, one thing must never change: we must always enjoy the process of building things together.
As a fully remote team, we prioritize asynchronous communication to assure equitable access to information and equal participation.
Company goals are shared internally, so everyone can align on them, either by taking ownership of a task or helping someone with an existing project.
We are building Dagger in the open, together with our community. All non-confidential communication related to the product development (verbal or written) is encouraged to happen on community channels. This allows everyone in the community to take an active part in improving the platform.
We organize our work day around our lifestyle. It’s important to organize the work around our life, and not the other way around. Freedom comes with accountability, so we plan our goals every week with the rest of the team and report back on what was achieved during the previous one.
Nothing is set in stone, we encourage initiative and proposals not only on the product, but also on the way we work together, how we hire, how we communicate, how we track progress, etc.
We welcome open communication, and cross collaboration between departments. Whether someone needs help, wants to validate an idea, or just wants to chat.
