Careers

We call ourselves Roomies.
We’d love to call you one, too.

Join our team

Who we are

We started Common Room to bring companies closer to their communities. Since our founding in 2020, we’ve raised over $50 million from top-tier investors like Greylock, Index, Madrona, and 25+ leading operators.

We use a hybrid work model based on the best West Coast. Our HQ is in Seattle, and we have offices located in San Francisco and Vancouver, British Columbia.

If you’re excited about ambitious goals, crispy solutions, and the future of community, we’d love to hear from you.

Our values

We believe how we work determines what we achieve. Our core values guide everything we do, from hiring discussions to product decisions.

Be Customer-centric

We work backwards from the needs of our customers. The crisp articulation of customer value guides our decisions.

Strive for Simplicity

We choose simplicity over complexity whenever possible. We seek to identify and understand the essential quality of what we are building.

Make it Happen

We are quick to take the first step, and prioritize decisiveness over fear of making a mistake. We don’t confuse motion for movement and we measure ourselves on impact over actions.

We’re In this Together

We measure personal success by the success of our customers and teammates. Relationships matter, and the strongest ones are built on trust, enablement, and transparency.

It’s important to feel supported both in and outside of work.

We’re hiring

From day one, we’ve prioritized creating an inclusive culture where everyone can do their best work. We’d love to have you join us.

Word on the street

We believe that people matter most, from our customers to candidates and fellow Roomies. See what people are saying about Common Room.

I enjoyed the interview process, and it's clear you put a lot of thought into designing it. In particular, the tech questions were much more relevant and practical than most tech interviews I've seen.
The founders complement each other well and the team is pretty experienced overall. It's rewarding building something brand new with a mature team.
I thoroughly enjoyed discussing the values at Common Room. I also appreciated your infectious energy and enthusiasm - it's the kind of energy that I used to be surrounded with [and] was a tangible reminder of what I'm looking for.
