What’s in it for you?

Lots of employers claim to embrace diversity and inclusivity on their websites, but don’t actually practice it – we mean it. Forge and Smith respects people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities.

We also work hard to create a safe, compassionate space where you can feel safe to bring up issues if needed, trust that you’ll be respected and heard, contribute fresh ideas and improve processes, and to get help when you’re stuck. Life happens, and we’ll also support you if you need a little time to take care of yourself or your family.

  • 100% REMOTE. No typo there.
  • Flexible work schedule.
  • Two weeks PTO/year.

  • Stat Holiday Swaps: You can opt out of specific stat holidays and take a day that has meaning to you in lieu.
  • Professional Development: We want you to master your craft! Every other Friday (not Forge Fridays) is a Pro-D day. Forge will pay for relevant courses and conferences, within reason.
