Our Philosophy

Here are a few key points (relevant to the go-to-market side) that should give you an idea of what it is like to work with us:

  • We invest in building best-in-class products since we believe a highly differentiated product is a lot easier to sell.
  • We aim to offer expertise and empathy whenever we interact with prospects and customers.
  • We strongly believe that small teams with very talented people (and the right work environment) deliver much better performance than teams with large headcount. We hire and compensate accordingly.



  • Competitive salary and equity.
  • Unlimited PTO with four weeks recommended per year.
  • Generous equipment, software, and office furniture budget. Get what you need to be happy and productive!
  • 10-year exercise window for stock options. You shouldn’t feel pressure to purchase stock options if you leave Ashby —do it when you feel financially comfortable.
  • $100/month education budget with more expensive items (like conferences) covered with manager approval.
