Who we are
An eclectic crew united by intellectual curiosity and a passion for creating truly great products.
Basecamp is spread out across 43 cities in 10 countries around the world, so everyone is free to live and work in the places they thrive.
We run the gamut in geography, lifestyle and interest, but we’re united by a common set of values and goals: do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, give back, and keep learning.
Collectively, we’ve run a profitable and popular business for 23 years straight, launched a widely popular programming framework (Ruby on Rails), written best-selling books, and a whole lot more.
Who you are
Rock star? Pass. Friendly and thoughtful? Let’s talk.
In broad strokes, Managers of One thrive at Basecamp. If you consider yourself an eager learner, a conscientious worker, and a thoughtful, kind, supportive human, you might just have a home here.
What we’re not looking for are ideological clones. You hear a lot of talk from tech companies that diversity is important for making great software. 100% true, but diversity has deeper value beyond monetary. There are few better ways to expand your horizons and grow as a person than to put yourself in the company of others with different backgrounds, experiences, and identities.
What it’s like to work here
A calm, collected environment where you can do your best work.
We work hard to make sure every employee is given the freedom, tools, trust, and support to do the best work of their careers. That's why so many people who work at Basecamp stay at Basecamp.
We respect everyone's right to participate in political expression and activism, but we avoid having political debates on our internal communication systems. Basecamp as a company also does not weigh in on politics publicly, outside of topics directly related to our business. You should be at peace with both of these stances.
We value a calm company and deliberate, concerted effort. You’ll have a lot fewer meetings, a lot less email, and a lot less interruption. Turns out 8 hours are plenty of time to get work done when you don’t slice your day into tiny “work moments”.
It’ll take some getting used to if you’ve been immersed in ASAP culture, but after a while you’ll wonder how you worked any other way.
We work in small, independent teams, typically on a 6 week cycle. Everyone at Basecamp participates in Everyone On Support every few months, and twice a year we all get together in Chicago to work and play together.
