A little about us

The Bytescale Culture

Bytescale is a company focused on simplicity.

We'd like to say we're a technology-first company, but the truth is we want to stand apart from difficult-to-use, technology-first products: whilst it takes significant technical skill to build and run a company like Bytescale, we pride ourselves on focusing more on the user, and providing a great developer experience.

Intercom's Des Traynor said it best:

There's a big difference between making a simple product, and making a product simple.

Our destiny is in our own hands.

We don't have shareholders, a board of directors with outside interests, or old VC guys in the background pulling strings. We generate revenue from customers who pay us, so we have unlimited runway to keep building the things we want to build.

The vast majority of our work gets done on GitHub, with Slack as the main communication channel. We do weekly meetings via Zoom to discuss progress and plan what's coming next.

Our values

What we aim to achieve

Be impressive

We want Bytescale to be something our users can't live without: something that nothing else comes close to.

Be helpful

Helping our customers is key: we know if they’re successful, we will be too.

Be transparent

Transparency fosters trust, and trust from our customers and teammates is paramount.

Be open

To keep our transparency values in check, we continue to ensure that large parts of the Bytescale platform remain open source.

Be ambitious

We always push the status quo: every solution must be the best solution for the problem at hand.

Be lean

Time is a scarce resource, for everyone. We try to respect it by cutting down on meetings and bureaucracy wherever possible.
