Employees at HQ celebrating shark week

In our New York HQ office and our Cambridge office, our employees are given opportunities to bond on fun, casual terms. Whether its a hackathon, end of week happy hour, a "Formal Friday" where we host a fun and fancy soiree, or a "Free Your Feet Friday" where employees don office-issued slippers of their choice, we make sure our employees enjoy a relaxing and playful end to their extremely productive weeks.

In-office employees video chatting with their remote counterparts

At DigitalOcean, we strive to find creative ways of bringing our all-inclusive culture to the employees moving our company forward from the comfort of their own homes. Our "remotees" are always invited to every office outing—and are often the initiators of our planned events.  Our remotees can expect to receive regular deliveries of surprise snacks packages or movie tickets to enjoy.

    - Best remote culture of any company out there
    - Managers give you the tools to succeed and empower you to make decisions
    - Everyone is super friendly and helpful, and people truly enjoy working here
    - Minimal meetings
    - Diverse culture


    - Meeting times can get tricky with teams being so timezone distributed
    - Slack can be noisy with all the team channels and interest group channels

    Advice to Management

    - Keep killing it

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalOcean in January 2018.


    The recruiting process at Digital Ocean is very impressive. The recruiter I worked with was phenomenal. He went above and beyond to match up multiple interviews with various stakeholders to my availability (which wasn't always easy) and was great at timely follow up and feedback.

    The DO team members I met were people one would want to work with; each added their perspective to the role and the future of the company. The overall process was organized and set DO apart from other organizations.
