A bit about WORK180

  2. Work with talented engineers. We're a high performing team that builds products used by people around the world. We achieve great results by supporting each other and focusing on continuous improvement.
  3. Take on exciting and challenging problems. You’ll be involved in everything from the decision making, planning, building, and running of our products, internal systems, and processes.
  4. Join a small team at a magical time. We're still small, and we have ambitious plans for the future. You'd help steer the ship and have a say in what we make and how we build it.

The WORK180 Story

After spending ten years in the tech industry, Gemma Lloyd and Valeria Ignatieva knew there had to be a better way for women to identify workplaces that weren’t the typical “boys club” environments.

WORK180 was born in Australia in 2015. Our goal was to improve workplaces for women and connect the best employers with top talent. Four years later, we have influenced positive change beyond our dreams.

WORK180 is achieving what no other job platform has done before. Businesses who do not meet our benchmark are not allowed to advertise their jobs. Employers are lifting the bar when it comes to creating supportive workplaces for women. This includes increasing paid parental leave, closing gender pay gaps and increasing the number of women in leadership.

Remote life at WORK180

This is a picture of our engineering team - though three very valuable members are missing!

We're a 100% remote company, but we're still a tight-knit team!

Working remotely has many unique benefits and challenges, and you'll have the flexibility and support to find what works for you.

Some of the ways we stay connected:

  • Company conferences - this year, we held our first-ever global virtual conference.
  • Regular state-based catchups. Coworking, coffee, lunch, dinner, drinks. - If COVID restrictions permit
  • Introductions to people in different teams to help them catch up in person or remotely. (We use a Slack plugin called Donut to help facilitate this).
