An Insider's view of Axios

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Axios offers a great deal of flexibility when it comes to work-life balance. As a father of 3 young kids, it is a big deal to me that I’ve never felt stressed out when I needed to turn on parent-mode. Axios shows respect for my time, and understands that life can happen at unexpected moments.

Earle (he/him)

Software Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about working on automation and efficiency tools for our publishing platform!


Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

In an engineering team, technical skills are obviously important, but we also place a high degree of emphasis on skills that are harder to coach. We specifically look for teammates with curiosity, self-awareness, determination, empathy and a healthy urgency to make things better. We've found that people who embody these are very effective at Axios.

Jamie (he/him)

VP, Engineering

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My team and I collaborate with so many teams across Axios, and we do this first by trusting our colleagues to do good work. Each function serves a purpose and I want others to feel that way about design. There's also a sense of community here, knowing that I can comfortably reach out to anyone and that they'll happily share knowledge.
