Patreon – Why Work With Us?

Patreon powers membership businesses for creators.

Finally, creators get what they deserve.

In 2013, YouTube musician Jack Conte was looking for a solution to his problem: millions of people loved his videos, but only hundreds of dollars were hitting his bank account. This didn’t add up, so he drafted up an idea and brought it to his college roommate Sam Yam. Now, Patreon is the solution to this same problem for over 100k creators.

We love creators

Patreon helps creators everywhere run their businesses and bring their fans along for the ride. Every moment spent working on this mission is a moment well spent; it’s actually changing millions of lives around the world. Our team is inspired, diligent, and proud of the culture we’ve created in order to nail this mission. Oh, and we have bizarre fun doing it.


  • Competitive Pay & Equity
    We believe in giving value for value. To get the best on board, we take care of our employees by providing competitive salaries, equity options and a 401k program.
  • Your Growth on Our Dime
    Patreon teammates are lifelong learners, so we’ll happily cover up to $3k annually for your professional development. Classes, seminars, mentorship — you name it.
  • We've Got You Covered
    Simply said, you should be happy and healthy. That’s why we offer incredible healthcare options for you and your loved ones, as well as catered healthy meals for lunch and dinner.
  • Diverse Teams Are Better Teams
    We’re absolutely dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workspace. We do that through regular workshops, monthly ERG meetings, participation in Project Include, conferences and more.
  • In-Office Creator Visits
    Creators love Patreon, and they visit (and perform at) the office regularly.
  • Sweat it out
    Yoga? Weightlifting? No matter, your gym membership or other wellness activity of your choice is on us.
  • Unlimited Vacation Leave
    Need a change of scenery/Mai Tai? Have fun! We’ll be here when you get back.
  • Wanna hang out?
    We like each other here, so we do happy hours, rec leagues, offsites, & more.
  • All the Bells & Whistles
    Commuter stipend, computer gear, and standing desks galore.

Our core behaviors

Most companies have core values. Few companies have cultures that reflect them. That’s why Patreon has core behaviors — things you can do to ensure a thriving workplace for you and your teammates.

Our core behaviors were crafted by our first two dozen employees, and have constantly evolved since then. To this day, we use them as our guiding light toward maintaining the culture we’ve built and love.
