But first, a little about us

Open Collective is on a mission to help communities around the world be sustainable. On Open Collective, groups like open source projects, neighbourhood associations, mutual aid groups and more can collect and spend money transparently, invite collaboration, and help their communities thrive.

Watch this video about what we do and why we are passionate about it:

Like the movements that we support, we value openness and transparency. We strive to create inclusive, respectful and sustainable communities and we're 100% Open Source. If you want to know more about us, you can already join our Slack and check out the Open Collective Way to learn more about how we operate and what we stand for.

We are a remote-first team that loves distributed leadership and autonomy within collaboration around the world: Aix-en-Provence, Auckland, Brussels, Berlin, Guadalajara, New York, Madrid, Paris, Shropshire, Navi Mumbai, Vancouver and Wellington. This start-up culture is truly different – the culture is one of care, listening, rigor, and autonomy within collaboration. If you are used to cut-throat dynamics and all-nighters, you will be happy to find another world is possible, and it is amazing.

We are building and maintaining money management software for the commons.
