Why you’ll love working at Fable

  • Work on a purpose driven product
  • We are a tech company with the soul of an artist
  • We are an early stage start-up and a constant work in progress. So, to borrow from Douglas Adams, “Don’t Panic”
  • Our culture is open and transparent
  • We have no time for bureaucracy – We want leaders, not spectators.
  • Attending meetings is not a thing at Fable, so you will need to be resourceful, hands-on and solve problems
  • We listen, understand, and consider before we judge

What does all this mean to you?

  • You will be working with a group of diverse, creative people distributed geographically.
  • We support each other in our curiosity and creativity.
  • We trust each other to set our own schedule and get things done.
  • You can count on us to count on you, every single day.
  • Flexibility – you can be based out of any location within the US
