What is Silktide?
At Silktide we solve complex problems that help increase the quality of the web, including ensuring users with disabilities are able to use the web equally.
We cover almost every aspect of an organization’s web presence, including content, accessibility, marketing, mobile, social, speed, and legal compliance.
Our platform makes an organization’s web team perform more effectively by taking the pain out of identifying and resolving issues on their website.
What makes us unique is that we don’t just provide software to our customers. We work with them to educate their team on complex topics such as web accessibility.
We heavily promote an open culture. Every member of our team keeps a Slack journal to log their thoughts, work, and ideas. Everyone can read these. Want to know exactly what your CEO is working on? Done.
Freedom is key to Silktide. We’ll give you the freedom to choose your work, your tech, your working hours, and of course, your location! We don’t clock in and out, in fact, we don’t check your hours. As long as your work is done, that’s good enough for us.
We’re growing fast and want ambitious, honest, trustworthy people to join our team.
