Fully remote since 2017

Shorthand is an experienced remote company, with every team member working remotely, including the CEO. Founded in Brisbane but growing globally, we’re a truly international team, and have mature processes and policies to make sure everyone is successful and happy at work.

Our team comes from a range of cultures, backgrounds, and countries. We’re committed to building a diverse, safe, and enjoyable workplace for everyone on our team.

Our values

At Shorthand, we're creating a place where a group of extraordinary people — a band of geeks with art and heart — can do their life's best work, achieve a sense of fulfilment while they're doing it, and ultimately help our customers to move mountains.

Here’s how we do it.

  • We simplify

    We do the hard work of making complicated things simple for the benefit of our customers and our teammates.

  • We work as a team

    We listen first with the intent to understand, and bring critical thinking and a positive attitude to our team interactions.

  • We think — then act

    We are comfortable with rapid experimentation and careful deliberation.

  • We’re diverse

    We bring to work our individual spirit and the diversity and new ideas that come with it.

  • We make magic

    We enchant our customers with our product and in every interaction.

  • We create impact

    We take pride in the results we achieve — not by our roles, titles, or the number of hours we work.
