Who we are

We’re taking on a major problem that people are passionate about solving: efficient collaboration across teams. We connect work management tools (Trello, Asana, JIRA, Zendesk, etc.), allowing our users to stay in their favorite tool instead of changing the way they work. It’s a hard technical problem involving a lot of semantics, APIs, and synchronization.

In the 4 years we’ve been around, we’ve connected 15 tools, acquired thousands of customers, and built a rock solid team of 60 people. Join us in our mission to change how collaboration works between teams for every company in the world!

Culture

Our team is a family of humble and hungry individuals, varying in age, gender, cultures, and backgrounds. We prefer to focus more on the quality of our work, and less on things like policies or rules. We trust our team and encourage them to make independent decisions, ask questions, share ideas, and voice opinions. Everyone's voice is heard.

Here at Unito, we’re huge on transparency, honesty, and execution. We have no tolerance for politics or hiding mistakes and value flexibility, autonomy, fairness, and respect. We share achievements, all company metrics, and learn from failures together as a team.

Our team operates through areas of responsibility that give everyone ownership of a part of the business. We are inclusive and welcoming, and dedicated to building a team of high performers. We want every employee to maximize their potential, learn, and grow within the company.
