This is not a rocket-ship. You won't find any unicorn glitter or exponential curves around here, just a real company with a sustainable business which has been profitable from year 1 and has been growing healthily ever since. Currently our Annual Recurring Revenue is $3,200,000. We're very transparent about our mission and our metrics, you can read all about us.
Ghost is a full stack web application for running independent publications. It’s one of the most popular modern open source projects in the world, and is used in production by tens of thousands of websites and companies.
Chances are you've already visited and read sites which run on Ghost. Our users range from hugely popular bloggers like Jeff Atwood, Troy Hunt and Joel Gascoigne - through to some of the world's largest organisations like Apple, Square, DuckDuckGo, OpenAI, Buffer, CloudFlare, Digital Ocean, Mozilla, Tinder, OkCupid and many, many more.
Ghost as a business is made up of two primary products:
The platform is targeted at professional/business users, and in turn funds the entire company to build free, open source software for everyone.
You’ll spend most of your day providing fast and painless customer support via email—this is your core responsibility. You’ll also help out with live chat, create a lot of documentation, and hop on impromptu calls with customers when needed. You’ll become an expert in all areas of Ghost.
We won’t overburden you with quotas, empty policies, or unnecessary procedures. Doing what’s in the best interest of our customers is at the heart of what we do. We’ll give you plenty of support to simply do what’s right, no questions asked.
Our ideal hire is motivated by what we’re doing as a company, believes in the value of quality technical support, and is eager to contribute to the success of our customers. As someone who is first in line to help, your understanding of the product and our customers will be incredibly valuable for the business.

We receive a lot of applications for each position. Take your time and make your application stand out. Our hiring process and timeline can vary from role to role, but typically you can expect:
Step 1: We'll review your application, then you'll hear from us about whether you’ve advanced to the next step.
Step 2: A video call with the hiring manager and another member of the team so we can get to know each other a little better. This is an informal chat—there's nothing to prepare!
Step 3: A second video call with the hiring manager. The purpose of this call is to get a sense of how you think about your work.
Step 4: A paid trial project—typically 4-6 hours of work. The project is representative of the kind of day-to-day work we do with customers.
Step 5: A video call with one of our co-founders, either Hannah our CTO, or John, our CEO.
