The Team

We are a lean team excited and passionate about building the user-empowered metaverse. We are devoted identity zealots, and we prioritize autonomy and trust in all aspects of our operations.

We are remote first, and plan time multiple opportunities each year to travel and spend time together. We have no formal vacation policy, but mandate that all teammates take at least one week per year away from work. We believe that everyone can do their best work when they are able to take time occasionally to rest and recharge.

At Disco, you will be working on the engineering team while collaborating with design, marketing and support to ensure we are putting our users at the forefront of the development process.

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team as this directly impacts the actualisation of our vision of a self-sovereign future. Building tools for the global citizens of the future means that respect, open communication, compassion and collaboration underpin everything we do.

Everyone is viewed as an owner and we offer competitive pay & benefits regardless of gender, race & location.
