“Substack is truly a mission-based company that cares deeply about the success of writers and creators. The entire company is dedicated to making it possible for writers to earn a living doing what they love, and the ability to build their own space online that they control without algorithms or ads. I feel so lucky and fulfilled that I get to do this work every day.”
– Christina, Partnerships
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.”
– Jack, Trust and Safety

Support to do your best work.
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.
Parental leave
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.
“If you peel back the layers of the Substack team, you’ll find people across the company trying to forge a better future for writers and readers alike. From product to partnerships to legal, teammates truly care. It’s one of the most special places that I’ve worked at.”
– Kevin, Operations
