The building blocks of our identity
We’re committed to building a company and culture with a lasting impact on the world.
Working without borders
From Jamaica to Poland, Taiwan to Australia, diversity is in Doist’s DNA. We believe the future of work transcends all kinds of borders.
Choosing ambition and balance
Balance without ambition is complacency. Ambition without balance isn't sustainable. Our team is proof you can have both.
Supporting well-lived lives
Our company exists to support our users’ goals. Not the other way around.
Thinking in decades, not in quarters
We opt for solutions that will get us where we want to be in the long-term. We’re running a marathon, not a sprint.
Our core values
They are few, but they are mighty. From creating processes to decision-making and recruiting, we build our five core values into nearly every single thing we do.
Others can trust that you’ll deliver on time and your teammates don’t need to worry about you keeping your word. You can easily manage your work and remain accountable with little or no direction.
You love what you do and care deeply about the quality of your work, down to the smallest details. You’re continuously learning and always pushing yourself to the limits of your ability. You’re never satisfied with the status-quo.
Your communication is clear, concise, and engaging whether you’re explaining a complex idea or providing feedback to a teammate. You keep others in the loop and never go radio silent. You’re culturally and socially aware and can appropriately navigate different types of social interactions.
Ambition & Balance
You aspire to put a dent in the universe. To do this, you set high standards for yourself and those around you. The time you spend on work isn’t measured by quantity, but by quality.
You’re able to take a bird’s eye view to pinpoint and then solve issues that have a high impact on our customers, our team, and our company. You’re committed to the health and success of both your teammates and Doist as a company.
How we work
Radical? Only for now. By using our core values to model our behavior, we show the world that a more fulfilling future of work is possible – and is already happening.
We embrace asynchronous teamwork
People have the space and trust to disconnect to focus on deep work. No one is expected to respond to messages immediately.
We trust our teammates by default
Autonomy and transparency are more effective motivators than time tracking and micromanagement.
We care about our team’s mental health
Adjusting to remote work can be hard. We respect that challenge and support people through the transition and throughout their remote career.
We embed our values in our products
Design is never neutral. We build products that embody our values and respect our users’ time and attention.
Giving back, globally
Part of being a remote company means being responsible citizens of the world. Every year we donate up to 2% of our revenue growth to support the vital work of internationally-minded organizations like:
Doctors without Borders
2019 - 2020
International Rescue Committee
2017 - 2018
Doctors without Borders
Software Freedom Conservancy
