“I realized that this is what I needed to be building. A product that elevates lucid thinking; that forges meaningful connection via conversation; that makes space for and celebrates the nuance of the human experience, instead of flattening it.”
– Becca, Product
What you read matters.
So we hire people who care deeply about reading and writing.
Subscriptions are better than ads.
The business model matters – subscriptions put readers and writers in charge, and they create an incentive system that fosters great work.
We work in service of writers.
Our teams build both for and with writers, providing Substack writers with the best terms, services, tools, and programs on offer.
We believe in the free press and in free speech.
We do not believe these things can be decoupled. You can read more about our views on content moderation on our blog.
“I am thankful to work at a company with a mission that enables individuals to define their own future.”
We offer robust benefits, though many companies will offer you those. So we offer an even more unique opportunity: the chance to materially affect the financial security of independent writers around the world.
Remote work support
All employees receive a generous allowance to customize their home offices.
Comprehensive health care
Substack covers 100% of premiums for employees and their dependents, and fully funds HRA plans.
We want employees to be fully present for the new members of their family, so we offer generous parental leave.
Flexible vacation and paid time off
You’re the best person to decide when you need a day—or a week—off to travel or decompress. Our flexible vacation policy puts you in control.
Company holidays and Winter shutdown
In addition to flexible time off, we honor 12 paid holidays annually on average. And we close the office between Christmas Eve and New Year's day to recharge each year.
Phone & internet stipends
Many of our employees work from home or on the go. So we offer full time employees a monthly stipend to cover for phone and internet costs.
“Everyone I’ve met so far at Substack are passionate defenders of reading and writing. The way I see it, Substack is a way to say “yes” to writers again and again without a “no” lurking in the background.”
– Kelsa, Community
