Careers at Notion

If every person and business can tailor software to their problems, the world will be better at solving its problems. Our mission is to make that a ubiquitous reality.

Our story

Early computing pioneers envisioned a future where machines on our desks could amplify our imagination, extend our intellect, and help us model information in ways never before seen. This is the type of tool we want to build together at Notion — one that gives you the software you can mold and shape like clay to solve your problems your way.

We’ve heard Notion described many ways. It can be as simple as a blank piece of paper, making writing feel light and delightful. It can be as complex as a relational database that stores huge amounts of data. We sometimes compare it to a set of Legos (if Legos were designed by The New York Times). But at its core, Notion is a toolbox of software building blocks that let you manage your life and work however you find most useful.

To make this possible, we’ve brought together a diverse team of individuals passionate about computing, history, art, alternative programming languages, music, skateboarding, and craft. Today, we’re growing faster than ever across offices in San Francisco, New York, Dublin, Hyderabad and Tokyo 🇺🇸 🇮🇪 🇮🇳 🇯🇵

We believe the best companies bring together diversity in race, age, physical and mental ability, sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity, perspectives and ideas. And people do their best work when they feel like they belong — included, valued, and equal. This is the Notion we want to build, where everyone brings their full selves to work knowing that they’ll be heard, championed, and supported to succeed. We hope you’ll join us.

Office culture

Notion is excited to resume work as an in-person company once it’s safe to do so. Everyone is required to be vaccinated at all offices. If you’re unable to get the vaccine due to religious, medical, or other reasons, please let your recruiter know.
