A little about us ?

Oyster is on a mission to create a more equal world by making it possible for companies everywhere to hire people anywhere.

In 2021, we grew rapidly, raising over $70 million in both Series A and Series B rounds and increasing our team size by nearly 10x. And we’re just getting started!

As a fully distributed startup, we’ve built an incredibly strong leadership team and employee base across 50+ countries (and counting!). We embrace asynchronous communication and collaborative work. We live on our platform, and we’re passionate about improving our product every day.

Hiring people internationally is complicated – engineering, legal, finance, operations, and HR processes all interact to make it happen. We’d like to find people who think this is as interesting a challenge as we do.

We're an inclusive and diverse workplace, and welcome applicants from marginalized groups – the world over.
