Be Part of a Diverse, Inclusive Team

ActiveState is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion. We foster an environment where the thoughts and views of everyone are supported. This goal starts at the top with our Executive Committee and permeates throughout our great organization. Treating each other with respect and making great products that just work is what we are all about.

Collaborate from Anywhere in the World with Virtual Meet-ups and Check-ins

ActiveState supports a “work from anywhere” approach that gives Activators the freedom to pick the location they find most comfortable. We provide all the hardware and software needed to ensure Activators can be productive, wherever they work. Working in the office? In these days of COVID, we help make sure you can maintain physical distancing. Working from home? Our daily virtual huddles and Slack check-ins keep us motivated.

Drive to the Goal Line with Complete Transparency

We’re firm believers that alignment towards common goals requires complete transparency. From our ActiveState Playbook to quarterly departmental metrics and financial performance, we “open the books” to all Activators in our monthly meetings. Voice your thoughts and feedback in our daily polls, regular employee surveys or face-to-face with our open-door policy.
