What You Can Expect From August

Work-life Integration

We trust you to use your best judgment about where and when to do your work. Take a vacation when you need it, work from home while you wait for a delivery, share a beer after work with your team, have a retrospective over breakfast!

Everyone is a member of the leadership team

Because we’re self-managed, everyone gets to make big, important decisions and run a real, profit-earning business.

Build the culture and business with us

We are a young company, with lots of growth ahead of us. We are also sure that we don’t know everything yet, and we are eager to build something together.

Learn fast

Continual improvement is core to how we operate. Every team member is given the resources and full commitment of the company to accelerate their career development.

Experience the world

Our clients and partners are everywhere. If you enjoy delivering work to clients across different cultures and time zones and enjoy travel (once it's safe again), you have the chance to experience some of the most interesting places in the world.

No strings attached

We believe that healthy employee retention relies on engagement and connection to the collective purpose. We don’t believe in negative retention tactics and do not ask team members to sign non-compete or non-solicitation agreements.

Radical transparency

We are committed to sharing all information about our business internally and share as much as we can with the external world. Check out our public drive to see this in practice.

Great health benefits

100% health insurance coverage for individuals, 80% for families (NY location - other locations have comparable health benefits).
