A membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid for their work.

We make it easy to make Patreon better. We build fast and emphasize shipping. We use continuous deployment to ship 30-40x / day. Our work culture is very autonomous. You self-assign to projects you are most passionate about, fix problems as you see fit, and collaborate with the rest of the company to ship your code.
We work hard to maintain a bottom-up decision-making culture. We empower our employees by providing a clear vision and tools to fulfill that vision. We believe that hiring smart, ambitious people, and giving them strong ownership of their work leads to the best results.
