Why join us?
Culture, culture, culture!
Building a team is just as important as building the product, a fact too often overlooked by most startups. We empower our team to do the best work of their careers through our intentionally designed culture- the operating system of the company- to support their success.
Both our product and our culture seek to eliminate negative engineering, i.e. wasted time. All Prefect team members embody our values of Learning, Empowerment, and Execution. Combined, they create the aspirational North Star for our high performance and collaborative culture.
At Prefect, growth is the sky's limit! Since we are a small team there is a lot of opportunity for professional growth within our company. Want to work on another part of the stack? Mentor a junior engineer? Learn about Kubernetes and how you can use it in your daily work? We got you! Learning is one our company values and we encourage continuous learning!
When we bring new team members into Prefect and our culture, we heavily invest in setting them up for success. This begins with a robust onboarding in which they learn about all business functions at Prefect, dive deep into our product, and meet every single team member. As a remote first company, building strong connections early is key. As part of onboarding we also send you some fun books to read!
Throughout their time at Prefect, all team members are supported by their managers, as our managers' main function is to support, build, and train their direct reports (

As part of our benefits package we offer an annual $1,000 professional education stipend, and all employees are highly encouraged to take advantage of this benefit.
It is a really exciting time to join Prefect for many reasons- one of which is company growth. We are growing like crazy!
We are a VC funded company- we raised $11.5M in Series A funding in January and in June we announced our Series B funding round of $32M led by Tiger Global. We will use the capital to further develop our platform, attract talent, and support our growing community of users.
We are working on awesome new and modern technology like Vue.js on our front end, and Python, PostgreSQL, Kubernetes and GCP across other parts of the stack. We question the status quo and don't just want to use a technology
because we have always used it.Bring your ideas to the table and help us build!
