About FirstbaseHQ

All-in-one Remote Worker Provisioning

1.0 Rated

Firstbase was set up as a fully remote company from the start. We don’t have a physical office, and our small but mighty team is distributed across North America and Europe. We are makers at heart—whether it’s coding, drafting product briefs, or designing, we’re committed to creating high-quality, delightful products. Our remote nature means we value clear, effective written communication for coordinating tasks and discussions across various platforms like Slack and Linear. Decision-making is swift; we aim to advance conversations and reach conclusions quickly.

We are looking for experienced individuals who are passionate about their work’s impact, thrive in a collaborative remote environment, and are keen on solving problems end to end. If you’re driven to produce exceptional work and keen to shape the future of remote work, Firstbase might be the perfect place for you.

  • Building delightful customer facing features in our platform.
  • Building internal tools to support our Operations and Finance teams.
  • Helping to scale our integrations with other HRIS, ITSM and MDM providers.
  • Helping to improve infrastructure performance and optimize architecture for scalability.
  • Improving observability, monitoring, and alerting systems, ensuring rapid response and minimal downtime in operational incidents.

We’re committed to building a culturally diverse team and strongly encourage you to apply regardless of your location, background, race, gender, sexual orientation or any other personally defining attribute. We encourage every person who is interested to apply. We’re imperfect communicators, so think of our job postings as the starting point for discussion rather than proof that you shouldn’t apply. Take the leap – you never know, you might just be the perfect person for one of our open roles, even if you don’t match 100% of the job description.
