While officially headquartered in NYC, all our staff is decentralized by design. Our global team has been efficiently working remotely for over a decade, coming together each day via internal chats and telepresence. As long as you have a webcam and a fast/reliable internet connection, you're all set!
Directus is a venture-backed open-source data platform with a passionate community and millions of users worldwide. Modern and completely modular, our core product is comprised of a dynamic API (REST and GraphQL) for developers, and an intuitive no-code App for non-technical users. With the ability to be installed on top of any new or existing SQL database, Directus instantly provides end-to-end data democratization through its feature-rich toolkit.
We're obsessed with meticulously honing the perfect data platform. Our product-led growth strategy keeps us focused on creating a premium offering, prioritizing innovative solutions over feature bloat, and code quality over technical debt.
Our team and ecosystem are growing at a rapid pace, but we still enjoy the benefits of being a smaller, more "tactical" team. Our organization is intentionally flat, with everyone wearing a few hats, and working with relative autonomy. If you're hands-on, excited about open-source software, and self-motivated... let's chat!
Directus is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We're committed to building a diverse team of talented individuals who bring different perspectives to the company, and who feel a sense of inclusion and belonging when they join our team.
