Interested in joining us? Here’s a little bit about what it’s like to work at Alley.

Know your value(s).

Our best work arises from our three core values: quality, transparency, and accountability. Our team is committed to shipping quality work that we’re confident in, does exactly what it should, and does so in the best possible manner. We believe in communicating transparently, using an agile structure where work is made visible on a daily basis.When things change, we adapt and re-set expectations, making it clear what we’re working on and holding ourselves accountable to what we set out to do.

Remote control.

When hiring new employees, we prioritize talent over geographic location, which has created a diverse, engaged network of Alley staff all over the country (and a few folx around the world!). We give our team members the space they need to work how they work best. From co-working spaces to wifi-enabled Airstreams in the middle of the desert, we understand the best work is done when team members get to work in the setting that works best for them. We’ll even pay for it with an annual equipment and co-working budget.

Room to grow.

We have coaches, not managers. We trust our team members to get their work done when they say they will. We also value learning and professional development, and provide structured mentorship and guidance at all levels of the company.

Day in, day out.

We use Scrum to run our projects collaboratively with our clients. Our project management techniques are designed to reduce stress for clients and Alley staff alike. As a distributed company, we use tools like Slack, Zoom, Google Apps, and Jira, to effectively get our work done from the workplaces of our choice. Tying these processes and tools directly into our culture improves everyone’s relationships. Our ultimate goal is to make our clients happy — and have some fun along the way.

Radical, man.

We believe in fostering a psychologically safe environment where team members can speak honestly at all times, subscribing to the concept of Radical Candor. This means that we strive to challenge each other directly because we care deeply for each other, our work, and Alley as a whole.

In good company.

Alley is an equal opportunity employer and we encourage everyone to apply regardless of what groups they might identify with. We seek to increase diversity in the tech industry and encourage applications from women, Black people, indigenous people, people of color, 2SLGBTQIA+ people, disabled people, and other communities traditionally underrepresented in this field. We don’t believe in one-hit, DE&I wonders. We don’t believe in empty gestures of allyship. We believe in “praxis”—acting and reflecting on the world in order to change it. Check out our DEI pledge to see what we are doing at Alley to enact this change.
