Our core values
Who we are
Right now, the best jobs are limited to people in a handful of the world's wealthiest cities—yet brilliant talent is everywhere.
Back in 2019, Oyster began with a simple question: What if we could bridge this gap by making global employment easier?
We’re on a mission to create a more equal world by making it possible for companies everywhere to hire people anywhere. We believe distributing work opportunities can make a positive impact on people and their communities, local economies, and the environment.
Today, we embrace the benefits and opportunities that come with the ability to hire and work from anywhere—and we want to provide them to you too!
What Oysters are saying
Life at Oyster
Welcome to the future of work
At Oyster, being globally distributed isn’t a challenge to overcome—it’s one of our biggest strengths. As champions of asynchronous communication, we design how we work as thoughtfully as we design our product.
We are intentional. Being purposeful about the ways we communicate and work together creates a stronger virtual workplace culture. We default to asynchronous work. This means less Zoom fatigue and more independence, flexibility, and trust. Done well, it's better for all of us.
We are radically transparent. Transparency helps us grow. We value honest feedback, recognize hard work, and get any issues on the table as fast as possible.
We value clarity. We strive to be exceptionally clear and encourage overcommunication.
We’ve got you covered
Different people have different needs, which is why our benefits package isn’t “one-size-fits-all.” We want our diverse team to do their best work and live their best lives, which starts with us supporting how you work.
Let’s get to work
