We’re a proud non-profit organisation building open source technology for journalism
Ghost foi fundado em abril de 2013, após uma campanha bem sucedida do Kickstarter para criar uma nova plataforma focada exclusivamente na publicação profissional. Nossa missão é criar as melhores ferramentas de código aberto para jornalistas e escritores independentes em todo o mundo e ter um impacto real no futuro da mídia online.
Hoje, o Ghost alimenta uma incrível variedade de sites; de blogueiros individuais que estão apenas começando, para grandes equipes de escritores e editores de algumas das maiores organizações do mundo. Construímos um negócio sustentável em torno de um aplicativo de núcleo livre, financiado por uma plataforma premium como um serviço para executá-lo.
Por trás das cenas, somos apenas um grupo de humanos estranhos e divertidos que gostam de experimentar novas tecnologias. Acreditamos em criar tanta liberdade no mundo quanto possível, e tudo o que fazemos é baseado nesse princípio central.
We set Ghost up as non-profit foundation so that it would always be true to its users, rather than shareholders or investors. Our legal constitution ensures that the company can never be bought or sold, and one hundred percent of our revenue is reinvested into the product and the community.
As a public organisation we also believe in being transparent and accountable for everything we do, so we publish our live financial data for all to see.
The more people who use Ghost, the more customers we have, the more revenue we receive, the more great people we can hire to work for the foundation, the better the software gets, the more people use Ghost… and so on.
It's a virtuous cycle which means that we can keep creating open, hackable software with a vibrant future, forever.
Our virtual headquarters is in Singapore, but we're a fully remote team spread all over the world. Between us, we cover 5 continents, 7 nationalities and 6 languages. All the work we do happens online, with no office to speak of. We use great tools like Slack, Zoom and Github to collaborate efficiently, harnessing the formidable power-of-the-internet™ to get things done.
We spend our days talking to each other and developing beautiful, open source products using modern technology to power the future of online publishing.
World class team & product
Work with a group of incredible people who are unbelievably excited about the work they do and the technology they use.
Choose where you work and how you want to work. It's entirely up to you. We really just want you to be happy.
We don't count how many hours you work each day. We do insist that you take at least 2 full weeks off per year, though.
All costs covered
We'll set you up with all the latest tech gear which you need and pay for a co-working space if you'd like one.
We'll coach you to help you grow your career and cover any costs for conferences, meetups, books or memberships.
Twice a year we fly everyone to an exotic location so we can spend a week working together and grabbing a few drinks.
In addition to the full-time team, Ghost is also made possible by an incredible community of open source contributors from all over the world who graciously volunteer their time and their code to the project.
Without the open source community, nothing which we do would be possible. We are forever indebted to the people who believe in what we do and help us.
