CREATING OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE FOR FREE.99👩🏽‍💻🎉

People all over the world are turning to R, Python, and other open-source programming languages, to make sense of data.

RStudio’s mission is to create free and open-source software for data science, scientific research, and technical communication. We do this to enhance the production and consumption of knowledge by everyone, regardless of economic means, and to facilitate collaboration and reproducible research, both of which are critical to the integrity and efficacy of work in science, education, government, and industry.

Visit our Shiny User Showcase to check out contributions from the Shiny app developer community here. Read about the immense impact RStudio has on the world here, and learn more about how people utilize our tools here.

RStudio also produces RStudio Team, a modular platform of commercial software products that give organizations the confidence to adopt R, Python, and other open-source data science software at scale - along with online services to make learning easier and use them over the web.

Together, RStudio’s open-source and commercial software form a virtuous cycle: The adoption of open-source data science software at scale in organizations creates demand for RStudio’s commercial software; the revenue from commercial software, in turn, enables deeper investment in the open-source software that benefits everyone.

RStudio is dedicated to using the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. We believe that corporations should be run for the benefit of all stakeholders, employees, customers, and the community at large. Consequently, we are a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) and a Certified B Corporation®. Our open-source mission is codified into our charter, and our corporate decisions must balance the interests of the community, customers, employees, and shareholders.

We utilize the non-profit B Lab®’s “Impact Assessment,” a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment. Further details are available in our annual public benefit report [here](https://www.rstudio.com/about/pbc-report and https://bcorporation.net/directory/rstudio. "r studio benefit report").

OUR FOUNDATIONAL VALUES💛

Service: A huge part of who we are is influenced by service. Be it how we lead our teams, interact with our community, and support our customers, service is ingrained in who we are and strive to be daily.

Sustainability: Sustainability is at the heart of our mission. We want our work to live long after we do and continue to positively impact the world 100+ years from now.

Respect: We vow to treat one another, our customers, and our community with respect in everything we do. And we're committed to continuously building a team environment that reinforces that goal.

Humility: We are not about egos or hierarchy. We believe great ideas can come from anyone on any team and encourage our employees to share their thoughts and perspectives in a variety of ways.

Kindness: We know that kindness isn't easy. Sometimes being kind means being committed to having tough conversations or addressing issues to help individuals or teams grow. We're not only willing to face the hard stuff but continue to evolve our skills in that work.

Focus Time: We believe that creating a working environment where we can set aside deep, uninterrupted stretches for focused work is key to building great things -- whether we are making software, writing about an important idea, or simply thinking through a thorny issue. We look to hone our abilities to focus and ensure time for what truly matters, including time away from work for our personal lives.

OUR DEFINITION OF DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION💪🏾🌈👨‍👩‍👦👨🏻‍🦽

We define and value diversity as the presence of differences within our team. We measure our diversity (based on race/ethnicity, gender, age, and other demographic factors) because our mission is to create products for anyone, anywhere, to use for free -- and it is essential that the composition of our organization reflects the diversity of our users. We are committed to building tools that work for everyone.

We believe that equity is different than equality. Simply treating everyone equally ignores the fact that we don’t all start from the same place or face the same hurdles in our path. Equity is important to us as it is a fundamental human value. Equity means that we are committed to ‘leveling the playing field,’ ensuring every team member has the same access to resources, connections, and opportunities needed to succeed. We are committed to creating a company culture and decision-making process that reflects our dedication to equity.

Inclusivity is the extent to which our team members, employees, and community members feel a sense of belonging, safety, and value within our organization. At RStudio we know it’s not enough to recruit people in; in order for everyone to do their best work and reach their full potential, they need to feel they belong when they join.

Another key to inclusivity is creating psychological safety within our organization through our values and leadership approach. We use inclusive meeting facilitation practices to try to ensure all voices are heard and give space in our 1:1s for feedback to managers. Inclusivity is where we start in creating an equitable workplace that supports and develops diverse talent.

Here at RStudio, we know that families come in all different sizes and structures and we offer healthcare based on individual households and dependents rather than marital status or other types of traditional family definitions. We offer gender-neutral paid parental leave for adoptive, foster, and birth parents. Gender-affirming healthcare is covered within our healthcare plan, as well as coverage, including mental health care, for the entire family.

We have a flexible paid time off policy, and encourage everyone on the team to take at least four weeks per year so people can take the time they need away from work to care for themselves and their loved ones. We understand that each person’s work-from-home life is different. We offer a home office allowance for employees to create a productive, comfortable, happy remote workspace. We also provide monthly co-working space stipends and an open door to our Boston office for employees in the local area, for those who seek to work outside of their homes. We understand that not everyone is able to be camera-ready at all times, so we never have a camera-on requirement for meetings.

All of our company events prioritize accessibility. As a fully remote company, all in-person events are optional for people that aren’t able to attend for any reason and we are continually working to make sure everyone can fully participate regardless of their ability to attend events in person. We value the individuality of each person on our teams and encourage them to share their feedback, questions, and concerns. This helps us build a company where everyone feels comfortable bringing their full selves to work.

OUR CODE OF CONDUCT & SAFETY PRACTICES🔖

RStudio is committed to fostering a productive, harassment-free working experience for everyone. We expect everyone at RStudio to contribute to a welcoming, civil, safe, and tolerant environment. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Our managers are trained to report all forms of harassment to the People Ops team (or beyond if appropriate) so we can help ensure that issues are documented and addressed appropriately.

Anti-harassment training:
Beyond simply meeting our legal obligations, providing training on what constitutes harassment and what each of us can do to maintain a safe, respectful, and equitable environment is critical if we want to preserve our respectful and inclusive culture as we continue to evolve. We know that many corporate anti-harassment trainings can be awkward, embarrassing, and ineffective, which is why we are partnering with Ethena, a company that focuses on relevant, timely, evidence-based training. This training is continuous throughout employment to keep the content top of mind, versus the “let’s just check the box” approach that is taken by other companies.

Culture of learning:
At RStudio, we believe in continuously examining our assumptions and looking for ways to improve ourselves. We know mistakes happen, and it is important that our teams can be honest about their mistakes without fear of negative repercussions so we can continue to build a culture of learning. Mistakes often create awareness so that we can all learn and grow.

Representation:
We partner with organizations that focus on hiring underrepresented talent in tech (She+ Geeks Out, Tech Ladies, Remotewomen, BTP) and Startup Recruiting Bootcamp with a focus on DEIA in recruiting for recruiters and hiring managers. We strive to create a team that reflects the diversity of our users and are working towards equal representation of folks typically underrepresented in tech in our marketing materials.

Organizational justice:
Organizational justice refers to employee perceptions of fairness in the workplace. One way we approach this is through our AMAs with leadership and PeopleOps, where people can anonymously surface areas of concern and discuss them.

In our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Council meetings, we start each meeting with ‘what have you been hearing’ so we can discuss challenges Council members have identified as well as things they’ve been hearing from people in their communities or departments.

As an organization, we are working to improve our career framework and create more clarity in career ladders, so that there is high visibility into advancement to ensure fairness in employment opportunities.

Respect/Trust/Psychological safety:
Leadership seeks out and participates in workshops about creating psychologically safe workplaces for employees and encourages employees to voice concerns without fear of negative repercussions. Leaders make deliberate choices to help employees feel safe focusing without constantly needing to check in on Slack or email and to prioritize taking time to rest when needed. Employees are trusted to use their time as they see fit.

Transparency in processes:
As a business, we strive to be open about how we make decisions. We intentionally share thought processes behind things like pay philosophy, hiring approach, company vision, and challenges we may be facing as a business.

Encouragement to be yourself/whole self:
We know that each person on our team brings unique and valuable perspectives to the company, and we want everyone to be able to bring their whole selves to work. We strive to create safe spaces for people to bring their concerns to leadership in Ask Me Anything meetings with anonymous questions through sli.do and welcome feedback.

We have intentionally built a company where employees have control of their schedule so they can have the work/life balance they need in their lives. Leaders have regular conversations about how to help remove barriers to employee control of time and place to focus on the parts that matter like finding overlap with colleagues to the frequency that matters and feeling able to be fully themselves and bring their whole selves to work. We have worked to create an environment where people know that no one is watching for the little green bubble to appear on Slack or expecting employees to appear. We don't want you to be triggered when you have to take time for yourself or your life.

We offer compensation for volunteer days when people want to take a day off to contribute to their communities. We also use Millie as a way for team members to make company-matched donations to organizations doing meaningful work all over the world. Employees are able to choose where their donations go and pick platforms that are important in their lives.

General climate of kindness:
We intentionally hire thoughtful, kind, and empathetic people and are committed to addressing whatever issues we need to to ensure every team has what they need to grow and thrive.

Acceptance:
We offer gender-neutral paid parental leave for adoptive foster and birth parents. Gender-affirming healthcare is covered within our healthcare plan, and we have a flexible paid time off policy. We also encourage everyone on the team to take at least four weeks for PTO to care for themselves.

We know that not everyone can travel, and as a fully remote company, all in-person events are optional for people that aren’t able to attend for any reason and we make sure to have those who can only attend virtually feel included through other ways of connection.

For our companywide work weeks, we are actively looking for hotels that are accessibility-friendly as well as open to our request for gender-neutral bathrooms. We want all to feel seen, heard, and welcomed.

Setting a norm of empathy/respect:
Leaders and managers understand that people’s lives outside of work are essential. As an organization, we work to ensure that everyone has time in their day to take care of the things that are important to them both in and outside of work, and that non-working hours can be used for personal lives, not work.

We try only to schedule necessary meetings, including only the people that need to be there, for the amount of time required (not planning extra time by default) so that we can be sure to respect everyone’s time.

We have channels on Slack where people can share what is happening in their lives and get support from colleagues. As a fully remote company, it is important to us to have spaces where people can build community and friendships. We also host virtual happy hours, virtual holiday parties, virtual cooking nights, and other fun ways to connect.

WHAT CURRENT & FUTURE TEAMMATES CAN EXPECT FROM LEADERSHIP 🤝

Health/Happiness:
Leaders do their best to live out our values in all they do. Whether that means being servant leaders and showing up for their teams, modeling taking vacations and the time needed to do good work, or delivering kind feedback, we prioritize creating the space for ourselves and our teams to thrive.

Leadership values connecting with our employees at all levels and in order to effectively do so provide space to voice concerns or questions (anonymously if needed) during our Ask Me Anything meetings, employee surveys, and open office hours. We want our employees to feel safe to share their experiences so we can continue to create a positive, inclusive, welcoming, and productive workplace culture together.

RStudio is intentionally 100% distributed; we trust our employees to do their job the best way they see fit from wherever they are in the world. We know people do their best work when they can structure their days around their lives and feel safe bringing their full selves to work. In addition to our flexible PTO policy, we have company-wide rest and relaxation breaks when we know everyone needs a break. You can find more about our R&R Holiday here: https://www.rstudio.com/r-and-r/

We also know that in-person connection is important, so we make sure to schedule-face to-face time when we can safely do so. We also understand that not everyone can travel, so we are working to make sure everyone can participate in our in-person events meaningfully, even if they cannot attend in person.

In addition to a caring, thoughtful, and inclusive approach to management, we know inclusive people-centered benefits are essential. Our benefits include gender-affirming healthcare, gender-neutral paid parental leave for birth, foster and adoptive parents, and mental health care for both employees and their families.

The financial well-being of our employees is a priority which is why we have a profit-sharing bonus, a long-term incentive plan and allow people to contribute to our 401K from day one with an employer match that starts after six months. We regularly focus on enhancing benefit offerings and know that caring for our team is one way we can create a sustainable business that is successful 100 years from now.

Career and goals:
At RStudio, we support on-the-job learning and encourage promotions from within the company. We have a learning & development budget for training, certifications, conferences, coaching, and ongoing offerings to enhance management abilities, including feedback, career development, and job design. We are creating a career framework structure so that employees can see a clear trajectory for career growth and we continue to build systems that support ongoing, meaningful feedback.

BEING ACTIONABLE & ACCESSIBLE IS AT OUR CORE🛣

Our daily actions, each recruiting conversation, each colleague conversation, and each decision leadership makes, are to ensure success in this space. Because our mission is to create products for anyone, anywhere, to use for free, it is essential that the composition of our organization reflects the diversity of our users. We will continue to strive to build more diverse and inclusive teams, especially within our leadership.

We are committed to building tools and a working environment that works for everyone. We want everyone to feel valued, in and outside our virtual walls. We work to consistently encourage others to be their authentic selves and know that they will always have a place within our community. We cherish uniqueness and hold true to our core values, one of which is inclusivity.

As a business with an open source core, we are fundamentally open and work to provide access to all. Open source software can be exclusionary, however, because of the social structure of some of these projects and the need for free time to work on open source.
We counter some of these open source narratives by paying people to work on open source software, offering paid mentorship and internship opportunities, and a developing fellowship program.

Our open source packages have Codes of Conduct and governance models, and the leadership on our packages – including the tidyverse, R Markdown, and Shiny – model inclusivity and create space for a welcoming community. We consider the work around the software - documentation, books, community, learning resources - as fundamental as the software itself for onboarding more people to work with and contribute to open source software for data science.

Our goal is data science for everyone, and we empower users, support the ecosystem and build tools to support data science from beginning to end. We develop and maintain more than 240 R packages, with more than 66,000,000 downloads in just the last month. People around the world use our software to answer the questions that are important to them and address challenges in science and society.

As a business, we strive to be transparent about how we make decisions. We intentionally share thought processes behind things like pay philosophy, hiring approach, company vision, and challenges we may be facing as a business. We encourage employees to ask questions, provide feedback, and voice any concerns they may have about our organization because we know listening to our teams will help us build a resilient, thriving, healthy organization that will still be around 100 years from now.

INTERVIEW PROCESS 📋

At RStudio, our core philosophy is that recruiting is about people and relationships. We work to create recruiting and hiring processes that are consistent, inclusive, flexible, and minimize bias to ensure that we help find the right fit for each candidate to continue growing their careers.

We try to keep the entire interview process between 3-5 interviews and minimize paired interviewers because we know, as a candidate, interviewing with more than one person at a time can be unnerving. Aside from the initial recruiter screen, we ensure all your conversations are with people you’ll be working with directly.

  1. Recruiter screen: (30 minutes, phone) During this call, we’re looking to briefly learn about your background and experience and what you're looking to do next. We will also tell you more about RStudio and answer any questions you may have.
  2. Hiring manager screen: (1 hour, Zoom) Here, we will have an in-depth conversion about the job, the day-to-day, and what the team is working towards. This is also where candidates will get to talk, in detail, about their work experience.
  3. Assignment: (Up to 2 hours, for technical roles only) This short assignment is structured to replicate what it’s like to work here. We give people the option to participate in an independent take-home assignment or a working partnership assignment via Zoom.
  4. Panel: (1 hour each, Zoom) This is where you meet the team and have 1 to 1 conversations with the people you’ll be working with.
