About Firstbasers

Firstbase is a community of seriously fun people.

We care about each other and value human connections. We like people proficient in written communications and use way too many emojis in our communications :-) . We're proud to be listed as a Next Billion Dollar Startup (Forbes) and actively looking for people that want to work in a rapidly growing and collaborative environment.

At work, we value a good balance of asynchronous quiet focus time and live synchronous team sessions. We are sensitive to the problems our customers are facing and committed to the impact we are creating.  

We look for like-minded people who are humble yet deeply passionate about their work.

Important Note

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

  • You're an excellent communicator, both written and verbal
  • You thrive in a quickly evolving environment and operate with a high degree of autonomy
  • 5 years of leading a high performing team, empowering employee growth and providing guidence.
