Working at Tales

  • Level playing field: Too often we see media distribution gated by expert gatekeepers. We believe success should be dictated by talent + hustle + data; it should not be a reflection of who you know.

  • Growth over titles: Our founders don't have fancy resumes; we're used to being the underdogs. We're an amazing team because of what we can accomplish. We will always prioritize hiring a team member with high growth potential vs. an impressive title.

  • Antifragile systems: We don't just solve the problem, we always investigate the root cause so we can make systemic improvements. Every customer service message is a valuable piece of feedback that leads to growth.

  • Trust and leadership: We believe creatives and developers can be self-managed if provided the right environment, dashboards, and tools. Come here if you miss building something with your own 2 hands. Not the place for big titles and armies of reports.

  • Bias towards action: Prove it, toss it, make it work, make it right, make it fast. There's no need to have lengthy debates on ideas that are easy to test. We'll pick faster release cycles over overengineered solutions any day.

  • Unexpected insights: We believe many of the best insights come from connecting disparate ideas together. We like well-rounded people who have interests outside of work so we can tap into inspiration from unlikely places.

Diversity and Inclusion

We gather data about the gender/age/race of the writers and characters produced on our platform so that we can ensure we are building the future we want to see. Here are the stats of the lead characters of stories on our platform: * 55% female * 50% people of color * 33% LGBT+
