We’re a collective of thinkers and tinkerers—designers, engineers, writers, and strategists building the platform to change the way apps are built. Our work is inspired by a shared belief that app creation should be simple, accessible, and enjoyable to everyone on the planet.

We’re not your typical tech company.

We weren’t built in the Valley, or by it. We’re a developer built, design obsessed, product focused team of makers. Our culture is balanced by cross-functional product teams and fast-paced release cycles. Yet, we still have time for our families, travel, and life outside of work—as bikers, surfers, climbers, photographers, gamers and speakers.

We took a non-traditional approach to building our business. We started with open source software, which spawned a global community and enabled us to grow quicker, learn faster, and reach more people than we ever imagined.

We’re building the company we all want to work at.

A place where each of us can do our best work, and feel good about it. As Peter Drucker famously said, culture “eats strategy for breakfast,” so we do our best to maintain a healthy work environment that is conducive to business results—without compromising mental health. Here’s what working with us is like:

We’re continuous learners

We are continuous learners, with beginners' mindsets. We always assume that what we do and how we do it can be improved through learning. Often that learning comes from new teammates, technologies, and our curiousity.

We’re low drama

We acknowledge the positive and negative impact emotions have on our behavior, and use that awareness to improve our team play. The result is low drama. Much more energy goes into fighting marketplace battles than internal ones.

We’re high talent

Our teammates are best in class at what they do, and perform their role at a very high level. We think of ourselves similar to a professional sports organization—laser-focused on building a championship-winning team.

We’re transparent & authentic

We’ve built a culture around authenticity, honesty, and open communication. We think it leads to better trust. Frankly, we just prefer straightforwardness. No angles, no hidden agendas. Real talk, always.

We believe anything is possible

Building a high-growth technology company isn’t easy. It’s often a roller-coaster. One has to be clear-eyed about the challenges but also optimistic. That optimism is essential fuel needed to power through challenging stretches.

We give (and take) responsibility

Everyone at Ionic exercises good judgment in every aspect of their work and interactions with one another and customers. It lets us give everyone a lot of freedom and responsibility, and requires much less “centralized control.”

We also pay well. And offer great benefits.

  • Competitive compensation—salary, bonus, equity

  • Medical, dental, and vision; flex spending account

  • Life & disability insurance offered

  • Flexible paid time off & sick leave

  • Company-wide 401(k) plan

  • Flexible work hours & locations—local or remote

  • Work with top-of-the-line equipment

  • Madison HQ for quarterly in-person gatherings
