About OpsLevel

OpsLevel is the leading internal developer portal designed to help engineering teams build, ship, and maintain software better than ever. We believe that developer portals are the linchpin to a successful developer experience. With customers like Duolingo, Sotheby's, Keller Williams, and Hootsuite, we know that the best businesses in the world prioritize a great developer experience in order to beat the competition.

We're a fully-remote team of folks who care deeply about the daily lives of developers, with team members across North America and Europe. OpsLevelers live our company values on a daily basis and when we’re not heads-down on a project or collaborating in real-time over Zoom, we're competing in trivia over lunch or sharing the latest fur baby photo in #pets-to-make-you-live-longer.

Our culture and values are very important and ground us in how we interact as one team:

Empathy - Think of others; think of your users

Growth Mindset - Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

Intellectual Honesty - The best solution is more important than anyone's ego

Focus & Efficiency - Keep the main thing the main thing

Simplicity
