Slite profile

We want to make teams work more thoughtfully. We started by fixing the way they shared knowledge, and built the simplest possible tool making all knowledge accessible, by default, in teams.

We started mid-2016 and since then we launched and released hundreds of iterations, have been backed by outstanding partners like YCombinator, Index or Spark, and most importantly improved the way thousands of teams work everyday.

We work remotely, perpetually challenge how we collaborate and we put great care and passion in what we do.

We’re looking for the brightest folks to join us: you who deeply care about what you do, how you work, thrive for simplicity, love Slite's mission and care about good design.

How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?

As a remote team, we’re forced to work asynchronously. But we also see it as a personal opportunity: we waste less time in meetings, we have more flexible schedules and are owners on how we work. As long as you deliver and don't let your teammates in the dark, async is a great way to collaborate for most tasks.

We also encourage our employees to take 5 weeks of PTO.

Remote First 40 Hours or Less Flexible Schedule

How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?

We work using Shape-up development process introduced by Basecamp originally. We use 6 weeks cycles and we have 2 weeks of cool-down time in between when we organize our time, do research, talk to customer and plan for the next cycle with the team. Usually this is when we also meet in person, and have some time to connect and do team building activities.

Async Communication

How do you support your team to grow and improve?

We focus on training our managers to be good coaches and be able to develop our employees through 1:1s, continuous growth conversations, and help unblock them. In case that is not enough we look for external mentors, training, or other ways to solve it.
