Our values

ENGAGES WITH COMMUNITY

Fostering community is at the core of who we are as individuals and a company.

FOSTERS PSYCHOLO-GICAL SAFETY

We want you to feel safe stepping outside your comfort zone.

CUSTOMER COMES FIRST

Everyone at Orbit interacts closely with our customers and community members. In fact, some of them feel almost like our co-workers.

CREATIVE + INNOVATIVE

We’re creating an entirely new category for communities.

FLEXIBLE WORK ARRANGEM-ENTS

Our founding team of three works across a nine-hour time difference, so flexibility is baked into the way we work at Orbit.

START-TO-FINISH OWNERSHIP

It’s not done until it’s shared.

EQ > IQ

If you want to spend every minute of your time deep in code, this probably won’t be the right place for you.

BONDED BY LOVE FOR PRODUCT

We use Orbit to build Orbit.

Presentation

Orbit's mission is to unlock the power of communities through the Orbit Model, technology, and data. Our community experience platform helps companies identify, measure, and boost their community members’ engagement, all while focusing on creating value instead of merely capturing it. We are a remote-first, fully distributed company backed by the incredible investors at a16z, Coatue, and Heavybit. We are post-series A and have over 3,000 community teams using our platform as of January 2022.

What they are looking for

They’re looking for talents who are passionate about engaging with the community, and excited about helping businesses do so on an even larger scale. They strongly believe that empathy, a love for product, and open and honest communication is key to the success of a business, and more importantly of its employees.

Diversity and inclusion is critical to how they are building the company and how they think about the world. They strongly encourage candidates from under-represented groups to apply. They actively try to identify and mitigate the cognitive biases they know that they suffer from as human beings.

Good to know

They have completed their series A funding and are on a high-growth path, with 40 employees as of March 2022. Their company is distributed with team members today in France, UK, and USA. All roles are remote-first. They value candor, kindness, diversity, persistence, and curiosity. They think space puns are out of this world.

At Orbit, they talk a lot about value capture versus value creation, with the goal being to encourage the latter. Patrick created the podcast Developer Love, to unpack how to build successful developer communities.
