We ended 2021 with our first team offsite in Dubai, and celebrated the latest announcements!
Applying our values is what helps us thrive, enjoy what we do, and ship our best work.
We get things done and have a bias towards action. We run a marathon and not a sprint. Though it's still a race.
We keep things simple and prefer pragmatic solutions over complicated abstractions. We cut away cargo cult.
We communicate early and often. We don’t have secrets but respect privacy and are honest if things went bad.
All of us own a piece of Raycast and we trust each other to do what they think is best for the company.
We don’t settle on mediocrity and choose quality over quantity. Even if the solutions are harder.
We come from different backgrounds and reflect our diverse community. We treat each other as we want to be treated.

Our team is spread across 9 countries, 3 timezones, 2 continents, and we believe working fast, simple, and transparent, leads to a higher quality level of work, where we trust and respect our colleagues.
Despite being fully-remote, we’ve still found time to meet up in our yearly retreats, such as Dubai 2021 (left), and bond over food, drink, and activities like golf and quad-biking.
It’s important that you enjoy your job, and love your life outside of work.
We have one meeting with the entire team per week – that’s it. We work autonomously, communicate asynchronously and collaborate ad-hoc. Every week, we demo what we’ve accomplished.
Some of our most-loved features, such as Floating Notes, and tools like Ray.so have come from hackdays. That’s why Fridays are for hacking.
Take a step away from your team work for a day, and build whatever you like. Hack on a new extension, explore new design system components, or tidy up Notion. It’s up to you!
Our aim is to continue making the best product we can. We bias to action and shipped 37 releases in 2021, including big features such as our Extensions API and hundreds of bug fixes and improvements.
We surround ourselves with the best work tools available. Figma, Linear, Notion, Cron, you name it. This environment sets the standard for our software.
Once a year we bring the entire team together. In 2021, we rented a villa in Dubai where we launched our Extensions API, drove quad bikes in the desert and competed in top golf. In 2022, we went to Mykonos where we cooked traditional Greek food, sailed around the island and enjoyed the beaches together. We can’t wait to see where it takes us next.
All of us use Raycast every single day. We have internal extensions to write weekly updates, ship releases and more. It makes a huge difference if you build something that you actually use. Many features came out of our daily problems.
We are a fully distributed company with 16 people, 3 dogs and 5 cats in 9 countries. Everybody works on the schedule that fits them best. It allows us to structure our work around our lives and not the other way around.
Want to work in a warm city during the winter? Go for it. If you’re at lunch or you’re taking your dog for a walk during the day, set your Slack status so the rest of your team knows about it.
Many of us left companies because bureaucracy killed product development. We are here to build a great product with like-minded people. Everything else doesn’t matter.
It isn’t all work and no play. We get together regularly to play games, make pancakes or other virtual activities. Our #watercooler Slack channel is jammed with photos outside of work and weekend plans.
Design is at the heart of the product and team. Every pixel and every detail matters.
From icons, to the UI in both dark and light mode, illustrations, social media content, it all belongs to the same story.
Get direct feedback from passionate users, who actively contribute to the product with 600+ script commands and 1500+ extensions, and work with the community to make Raycast even better.
We put people first and want to empower everybody at Raycast to do your best work.
We pay you a location independent rate
We don't treat "act like an owner" as a phrase
We value going the extra mile
We provide 3 months paid time off
We recommend at least 25 days
Order your own equipment to onboard
Use it on whatever makes you productive

Chat with a founder to get to know what it takes to work at Raycast.
Come prepared to the meeting. It's a way for both sides to get to know each other. Good candidates prepare questions, used our app and articulate what they look for in their next role.
You will meet a team member that you'll work with together later. They will brief you on a take-home task.
This step is the moment to shine. We open a Slack chat to communicate – use it! Most candidates go silent and come back with bad results. We collaborate with you on the task to simulate real work.
You will present us the results of your take-home task.
Don't spend time preparing a slideshow, instead articulate your thinking. Why did you take a shortcut? What would you do differently when you had more time? What little detail did you add?
We wrap it up with an offer and discuss the final details.
We're very transparent throughout our interview process. There shouldn't be any surprises at this step. We align on the last bits before we make you part of the RayFam.
