Help us empower our customers in creating fast and accessible products.
What is Calibre?
Calibre is a small, bootstrapped team building tools to help our customers ship better, faster websites and applications. While we do so, we’re continually striving to create a more humane and sustainable way to work. You won’t find hustle here.
Our team is spread across Australia. Tailor your workday to your life and productivity as long as you deliver and have few hours of overlap with us.
Have tangible impact on the product
Everyone at Calibre, no matter their role, will have a significant influence on what we ship to our customers. Being hands-on is our default.
Be excellent, not fast
We don’t rush or set arbitrary deadlines. We ship when features feel and are right for our customers. We’re here for the long-haul.
Work to live, not live to work
We are not a family. We don’t expect overtime. We have firm boundaries and work four days a week, eight hours a day tops.
There are no open roles at the moment.
