At Doist, our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a calmer, more balanced, more fulfilling way to work and live.

We envision a future in which people can work without distractions from anywhere in the world on things that they are passionate about, and then unplug at the end of the day with the reassuring peace-of-mind that their tasks and teamwork are accounted for.

We are a multidisciplinary team that's passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people's lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and seek to change how productivity tools are made.

When you become a Doister, you're not only joining a global, remote-first company, but a team of 62 people (and counting!) who value:

  • Inclusivity, open-mindedness, and diversity
  • Taking care of ourselves and each other
  • Empowering people to live fulfilling lives
  • Making long-term decisions, even if they're harder

Our values aren't just meant to paint a nice picture—they are the core of how we think, work, and interact.

Within this role you'll also have the opportunity to collaborate in cross-functional teams to drive exciting initiatives.

  • Work-Life balance. That means 8 hours of work, 5 days each week (for a total of 40 hours) because the time you spend outside of work is just as important as the time you spend working.
  • Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).
  • Generous paid vacation + national holidays. You'll receive 5 weeks of paid time off + national holidays where you live.

  • Healthy snacks. You'll have a budget to spend on fruit, nuts, and any other healthy snacks you need to keep you energized throughout the day.
  • Annual company retreats. Although we work remotely, we still enjoy bringing the whole team together to get to know each other, bond, and have face-to-face discussions in places like Spain (2015), Iceland (2016), Greece (2017), and Chile (2018).
  • Amazing people. Being a part of the Doist team means you get to work with incredibly diverse, talented people who also enjoy having fun!
  • And much more!
