About the company

We make Octopus Deploy, software that enables teams to deliver working software to production. We’ve become the “best in class” tool in our category by focusing on doing one thing and doing it very well. Founded in 2012, we now have over 25,000 happy customers around the world, and we employ 70+ wonderful people.

We’re a bootstrapped, profitable, growing business. We’re not VC-funded, and our goal is to build a company that will last forever, while enjoying the journey and doing work that we’re proud of. Our business model is all around understanding our customers, building great software, backing it up with great support and customer service, and making it incredibly easy to discover, learn and use.

Most of our team is based in Brisbane, Australia, where the company started, though we’ve spread to other parts of Australia, the US, and UK. Because our team is distributed, everyone works from home most of the week, so we’ve built a remote-first culture.

We’ve made our company handbook public, and it’s a great guide to how we think about just about everything – including career progression and compensation, our vision and what we care about, how our company is structured, feedback loops, training, remote work and more. Please take a read of our handbook, and reach out if you think there is a good fit.
