Brave
Brave is on a mission to save privacy on the web. We’ve built a free web browser that blocks creepy ads and trackers right out of the box. As an alternative to invasive digital ad-tech surveillance, we’ve pioneered completely private ads (opt-in!) that directly reward you for your attention. Brave has over 25 million monthly active users.
In more normal times, our roughly 100-person team orbits a “main” office of about 30 in San Francisco, with smaller clusters spread around the world. Our work style combines an in-person culture in the S.F. office with remote-inclusive practices emphasizing live conversations by video call and fast and slow chat on Slack. This has made for a painless transition to fully remote work.
