Who are we, really?

At “the dot”, you’ll find a diverse team of authentic individuals who share the goal of building the most agile, scalable and secure content management system, delighting customers and having a lot of fun doing it. We’re a curious, innovative and collaborative group that works from anywhere, having been 100% remote long before a pandemic required it. Working remotely is in our DNA, whether it’s to enjoy the beautiful views of new countries or just more “you” time outside of work.
