How We Work

As engineers, we get a big say in… well, everything. We share and celebrate our successes and value teamwork, learning, and cooperation. Our meetings are open, inclusive, and attendance is optional.

We have big ideas about where Medium is going, and we see it as more than just a platform for writing.
