Working at Dagster Labs
We’re a small, well-funded, and collegial team with a proven track record of shipping open source software with global adoption, looking for creative, curious, effective, and empathetic engineers. We put a premium on respectful, clear, and complete communication.
Execute with ambition
We are a team that is intrinsically driven and executes with fierce urgency. We think big, aim high and are here to be the best at what we do. We value grit, resilience, and are able to persevere to get to the best outcome. We play to win and we do not mistake motion for progress, striving to quickly focus in on what really matters and avoid work about work.
Be a global optimizer
We optimize for the group, the company, and not just for the individual. We have a mutual responsibility to support one another to succeed and multiply our impact beyond the sum of our individual parts. We sometimes put aside the work that’s most important within our focus area to help with higher-priority work in other areas. We empower people to have sufficient context across the company to be able to work cross-functionally. We sometimes operate outside of our defined responsibility and never say that something is “not our job”. We act as owners, roll our sleeves up to pitch in, and fix problems and gaps that we see.
Respect the craft
We hold ourselves to high standards and trust each other to do the same. We do not believe that quality and velocity are at odds with each other, and taking our craft seriously means we can move fast with excellence. We we do what we say we’re going to do. We work from first principles and solve fundamental problems. We provide continuous, direct, and thoughtful feedback to one another in order to improve. When failures happen, we learn from them as an opportunity to improve our future outcomes.
Developers, developers, developers…
We started off as an OSS project - our community has been with us the entire journey and they are the reason Dagster Labs exists. The developer experience at Dagster Labs is everyone’s responsibility. We are dedicated to doing everything we can to improve their experience working with data platforms. This means that everyone is invested in our community, their success and their sentiment towards our products.
Our workplace should reflect the full diversity of interests, backgrounds, and ideas of all of our employees. We invest in creating experiences to foster meaningful connections and encourage everyone to connect genuinely with colleagues. Building is hard and we believe it will be more sustainable, and we will have more fun when we engage authentically and inject some levity into our daily interactions.
We're an early stage company with ambitious goals and high potential financial upside. In addition to generous stock options for our employees, we offer a 401k plan and an annual learning stipend for continuing education and other resources including books and subscriptions.
We have offices across the U.S. and flexible working hours. Every employee is provided a remote work stipend to cover the cost of home office equipment and anything else that makes your remote work location comfortable, productive, or successful. And if you’d rather not work from home, we’ll cover the cost of a coworking or office space if you're fully remote.
Our Health and Family
We take care of our team with comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision plans. To promote a healthy work-life balance, we offer generous PTO including unlimited sick leave and an extended holiday break. When an employee adds a new member to their family, they’re covered with 12 weeks of paid family leave (and a Dagster onesie!).
